My name is Tommy Candido and I saw Dr. Wirchansky in 2017 regarding pain I had been experiencing for several years. Through a visit and an examination with Dr. Wirchansky, he diagnosed me with a Cervical Spine issue. Being that this was my first visit with Dr. Wirchansky, he began by understanding/asking questions relevant to my life, occupation, hobbies, etc. Dr. Wirchansky sat with me and took time to explain options for treatment and recovery, as well as explain the pros and cons of all options, which I very much appreciated. He made it easy for me to understand, made me feel comfortable, and was incredibly patient with my many questions both in person and over the phone. Dr. Wirchansky truly sets himself apart from other physicians I have seen regarding my complicated Cervical Spine issue. He is extremely thorough, caring, and professional. Dr. Wirchansky is truly passionate in his everyday work and I cannot thank him enough! He is an exceptional physician!

Dr. Wirchansky, You diagnose my sister with suffering from a aneurism and Hydrocephalus on Saturday July 4, 2020. I have left 2 message for my call to be returned so that I can talk to you about your diagnosis. I do hope that you will return my call so that we can review her scan and MRI via zoom since you to made this diagnosis. I find it concerning that you would share this news with your patient and not get back to them with any further information on surgery, recovery, down time etc.......if you would check your messages you will find my number there. thank you Nadine Washington
