What People Say About Dr. L Wurtz, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I saw Dr Wurtz 01/25/2018 for a Tumor on my arm. I was impressed at how likeable he was, extremely attentive, a very good listener, intelligent, soft spoken and humble. All the things I initially look for in a doctor, it’s very important to feel like you have been heard thoroughly and completely. If you have orthopedic needs, he specializes in soft tissue and cancer of the arms & legs. You can’t go wrong here, he’s not just another good looking doctor!.

I was a new patient and at my first appointment, I was required to wait 3 1/2 hours before seeing the doctor. I did not receive any communication from the staff about the expected wait time. Dr. Wurtz finally came in to the exam room and stated he would consult w/ other physicians about my medical concern & call me on a specific day. That specific day has come and past with no phone call. It's been a week since I visited the office without any calls and no answers regarding my concern.
