Dr. Wurtz has been my OB/GYN for all 4 of my pregnancies since September 2014, including my current baby who is due in early June. The reason why I have continued to go to Dr. Wurtz, even after moving to Hastings in August 2017 is I feel that I am a top priority to him as a patient. He has given me his personal cell phone number in case I have any worries about preterm labor or something serious comes up, and he always responds immediately when I have a concern. He is incredibly considerate.

We are so thankful for Dr. Wurtz. He is so caring and always does a thorough exam. Both of my kids love going to the doctor now because of him and I'm so thankful that he's been there through my pregnancies. He's unlike many other doctors I have seen and truly takes his time to get to know his patients and how to best to serve them.

We love Dr. Wurtz! We have great trust in him as our family doctor. It is worth it to us to drive an hour from out of town to see him. He has been our doctor for 7 years now. We trust his judgement on all medical decisions for our family.

Dr. Wurtz helped me to find ways to manage my Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and to conceive after a year of infertility. He delivered my baby and continues to be my family's primary physician, although we have moved three hours away. His knowledge and confidence make him a favorite with my husband, and his gentleness and calm demeanor really speak to me. He has a genuine care for each and every one of his patients and he is extremely knowledgable in his practice.

Dr. Wurtz is other only anamazing doctor but he cares so much about his patients. I’ve been been a patient since 2007 and wouldn’t go anywhere else. He is a great doctor for myself but is also so amazing with my kids. They love him, and that says a lot on days when a visit includes shots or something not fun.

Dr wurtz has been an amazing doctor for our family and I would recommend him to everyone! He always is willing to fit my family in when we need to be seen last minute and willing to stay late if anyone needs him! He is very dedicated to his patients and treats them all like they are his family! He is very knowledgeable and always brings peace of mind! He is truly a gift in Lincoln!

I went to Dr. Wurtz on the recommendation of a family member and will never be back. His patient bedside manner is atrocious and he ordered tests I specifically said no to. A few months later I was in the delivery room with my sister as Dr. Wurtz sat on a couch in the LDR looking at real estate properties telling her not to push. My advice, do not establish care with this doctor.
