What Patients are Saying About Dr. Timothy Wirt

  • Thank you so much for all your help and wonderful care. I appreciate it so much!
    — Naomi
  • A note of “thanks” is woefully inadequate in view of what you accomplished for me in surgery. Nonetheless I must say the heartiest possible, THANK YOU. And an added Thank you because you were willing to spend your Saturday morning in surgery rather than postpone my case to a more convenient day. When my friends and acquaintances question me about the “miraculous” recovery I am enjoying, I am quick to give you due credit. I believe at least one of them will be coming to see you. Sincerely wishing you all the best.
    — Jan
  • Your kindness and responsiveness is in a league of its own! We hope this brightens your world as you have brightened ours.
    — Carol
  • I am writing to let you know how very much I appreciate your care and concern in my recent surgery. From my entrance into your office, my and your hard work to get me on this schedule, I felt very confident in your skills and assistance. Though I wasn’t able to run that promised marathon Friday, travel home was a breeze and I feel good about returning to work tomorrow. Thank you so much. I haven’t felt this good in 18 months.
    — Barbara
  • My sincere thanks to all of you for the compassionate and extremely patient care you have given me. From the front desk to the operating room and everyone in between, I was constantly treated with loving care and dignity. I can’t tell you how nice it has made me feel. Your staff have exceeded my expectations and lent me comfort during extremely painful days. You set the standard for how a medical clinic should run.
    — Joanie
  • Can’t thank you enough for your excellent skill and care during and after my back surgery, August 19 2014. I haven’t felt this well in years!
