What Patients are Saying About Dr. Timothy Wirt, MD

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!

— Arlene
