Patient Comments (6)
Denver, CO |
I read many of the reviews prior to my appt with Dr. Wirtz, so I thought that I knew what to expect from my appointment. I was totally unprepared for him to look at my MRI - which clearly shows 2 herniated discs as well as spinal stenosis, give me a strength test, which I failed miserably, then turn around and tell me that nothing was wrong with me and that he could do absolutely NOTHING form me. Then he turned around and said that I was stupid for considering fusion with another Dr.

He operated on me and the pain did not go away. At my follow up he told me I should be pain free and I didn't need to see him again. He then walked out if the office. He put in my records I looked great and could do all activities pain free. He is an arrogant man with no regard for his patient.
Ft Collins, CO |
Dr. Wirt operated on me for a cervical issue that was unusual, so much so that I had to fight with my insurance company to authorize the surgery. The staff and Dr. Wirt helped me through that process and I was finally able to obtain authorization. I had surgery in mid November and my outcome is fantastic. I no longer have the chronic pain that I was living with for over one year. He did a great job for me and his staff and partners Dr. Turner, and Dr. Beard have been nothing but kind and helpful

Dr. Wirt is very professional and caring of you as a patient. I feel that he is truly genuine in his desire to help you get well. I have always felt a good Dr./patient relationship when I have needed him.
Loveland, Colorado |
Dr. Wirt is very direct and does not beat around the bush. He is not a touchy feeling doctor but his surgical skills are excellent and I have improved drastically over how I was before the surgery. I would highly recommend him.

Dr Wirt is awesome! I had a large herniated disc with horrible sciatic pain. After my surgery I was immediately better and I was pain free within just a few days. Thank you so much for the great care!
