the doctor was great, had an excellent bedside manner; staff was a little green, though, and asked if I was a new patient, when I have been going there for years. Also, I prefilled the ZocDoc forms, but the same questionswere asked when I arrived, which makes me wonder what the link is between ZocDoc and the office.

He was polite but VERY pushy with birth control options. I do not believe in flooding your system with synthetic hormones every month and calling that 'safe' NOR putting an IUD that basically does the same function. I did express thatI am happy with my own natural method of birth control and he kept harping on the IUD thing. I felt like I was in the middle of a sales pitch with a used car salesman. I won't be returning.

Dr. Wirth was very nice and thorough in explaining things to me. Made me feel comfortable at all times. The nurse who took my measurements (blood pressure, etc.) was unfriendly and just kept staring at me; she was also very hardto understand. Everyone else at the office was super friendly.

Very knowledgeable - some may find he can be patronizing given all he knows on the subject matter and somewhat dismissive of their concerns; but it really is that he's so well versed on all issues and tries to calm yournerves or anxieties with the science behind it. I appreciate someone who can be very thorough, answer all of my questions and edifying me in general given that I put research into my health and options as well. It lends itself to good discourse and selecting the best plan of action for me.

I've been going to Dr. Wirth for six years. He is very informative, to the point, and knows his stats. I find that my appointments tend to be quick and to the point UNLESS I have questions. If I have questions/concernshe will go into a lot of detail, draw graphs, provide the necessary reassurance etc. In short, I am very comfortable with him and have never had a bad experience in my 6+ years. That said, I would hesitate to recommend him to my more demanding/high maintenance friends. This has more to do with the staff than with him. When rushed or if late in the day the staff can be somewhat unpleasant. They get the job done but are not 100% professional. If you only care about the doctor go with Dr. Wirth, but if you want an all around optimal experience from the moment you walk in the door you will probably be dissatisfied. For example, my somewhat high maintenance husband was irked by the fact that one of the nurses (technicians?) sighed heavily when she realized she had to take my bloodwork at 7:15PM. I guess this type of thing bothers some people.

I've been a patient of Dr. Wirth's for almost 10 years. He never ages. But that's beside the point. Dr. Wirth may not seem overtly jovial, but he is calm and neutral and listens to my concerns, which I find reassuringin an OB/GYN. He will explain any medications that might be suggested or needed and answer your questions fully. There are times when Dr. Wirth may seem rushed or the office wait might be very long, but I've found it is usually because someone is in labor or there's another kind of emergency going on, so I can understand that. Once when I went there two of his patients were in labor/delivery at the same time! If I recall correctly, the staff offered to reschedule or offer another doctor to visit (there is another doctor available at IHC).

I went in to the see Dr. Wirth for a standard YI which he diagnosed on the spot but went ahead and ordered hundreds of dollars worth of lab work which I had to pay a large portion of. I spenta few months going back and forth with his office to try and minimize the amount however I was always told I'd receive a call back (never did). I ultimately succumbed and paid off the invoice in order to avoid collections. I would not recommend nor use Dr. Wirth's services again.

Dr. Wirth consistently ignored my concerns on several occasion. He continued to recommend birth control options I expressed I was uncomfortable with and he then ignored two issues, which could have been easily diagnosed. Instead neitherwas and one of them led to me being hospitalized with excruciating pain and an apparent fibroid, which later had to be surgically removed. Despite these issues, which should have been reason enough to find a new doctor, I returned to Dr. Wirth and was disappointed that he seemed completely unfazed by his ability to provide quality medical care.

I saw the doctor and everything seemed fine - wait was long but not over an hour. Offices were clean and staff was nice enough. But don't go to this doctor if you think you'll ever get your questions answered. Ifelt rushed during the visit. Afterwards, I called with a question and the doctor refused to call me back, and the staff was much less helpful. Totally negligent and disrespectful way to treat a patient.

He's great and is always concerned with your health and doesn't rush or pressure you in to having unnecessary surgical procedures.The front office staff is hot and cold.

The doctor is fine but the staff is horrendous. So unprofessional. The staff talks inappropriately about personal matters while patients are around. Instead of telling your results over the phone, the doctor forces you to come in to chargeyou extra and never returns your call. Very very unprofessional. They fail to release documents in a timely manner when asked over 3 times. Then a year later I receive a notice from a professional collector for a bill I never even received? I have not seen this doctor in over a year and never will again, absolutely unbelievable.

I am absolutely disgusted with Dr. Wirth's office. I have been a patient of Dr. Wirth's for years. About a year and a half ago Dr. Wirth urged me to have an IUD inserted instead of continuing oral birth control. Ifollowed his advice. It turned out to be a total nightmare. I waited six months as he advised, and then I had him remove it. Dr. Wirth did not make it easy. He really wanted me to keep the Mirena in even though it was causing horrible side effects. He told me that he didn't feel that oral birth control was safe for me given my age (37 years old) and the fact that I smoked (I recently quit). I told him I understood the risks, but it was my well informed decision to continue with oral birth control. That was in February. Now it is December and his office is refusing to renew my birth control or even to extend it for one month until I come in for another invasive annual exam. Apparently, the visit where I had the Mirena removed and a whole conversation about my birth control with Dr. Wirth did not count as an annual exam. What disturbs me is the inflexibility of this Dr. and his office staff to put the reproductive needs of a patient before archaic policies that force a patient on to the exam table every 12 months without exception, or birth control will be held hostage until the patient submits. This is extremely disturbing to me. At this very moment my birth control is about to lapse and after a very unpleasant conversation with office staff during which I was hung up on after being talked over excessively and repeatedly requesting a return phone call from Dr. Wirth, I had my pharmacy contact the office. Staff once again refused to renew my birth control even temporarily until I am seen for the dreaded (and all-too-frequent) "annual" visit. So, long story short, this office would see its patients go without birth control entirely rather than work with them, have the Dr. call them, or show some lenience in what is an absolutely unreasonable policy designed solely to lock down insurance payments. A disgrace to women's healthcare is what it is. I look forward to finding another doctor, one who I can trust and who cares more about my well-being and right to make my own choices than about raking in co-pays and insurance payments while hiding behind so-called "liability" which deprives a patient of her liberty.

I had previously come to see another female doctor also at Innovative Healthcare Physicians and had an unpleasant experience. I chose to see Dr. Wirth and was amazed at his bedside manner. We spoke about fertility testing, preparation for pregnancy,and he actually took his time to explain his advise to me, rather than simply saying it's not necessary. At the end of his explanation, he asked something that shows how much empathy he has. He asked "How does this information make you feel? Does it make you feel frustrated? Do you want to find out more?" I was shocked at how much empathy he showed. He treated me like a person, had a conversation, and when I asked to be referred to some academic publications, he did so. The previous doctor when I spoke about fertility testing, simply cut me off and said it was not necessary, as long as I have kids before 35. She never even asked if I did plan to have kids before 35.

Do not book your appointment for early on Monday mornings during the summer. They do not cut the A/C on until 8:30 and the office is sweltering until around 9:00am. The heat was so overwhelming Dr. Wirth counted from 2005 to2015 and got 7 years! I hope we can rack that up to the heat...frightening otherwise.

Dr. Wirth's office's definite plus is that they see you right away. On the other hand, appointments are extremely rushed and I never felt like questions are welcomed. There's definitely no knowledge or advice on gentle, natural methods of sustaininghealthy pregnancy, and natural, drug-free birth is not encouraged. Again, the doc is available in the middle of the night for emergencies, although info provided is very concise. Bedside manner is dry and to the point - but in emotional issues such as pregnancy you sometimes need more talking, more calming. As for birthing itself, I was again rushed to push when I felt it was too early. For this office, location and hours are a huge plus, but I would highly recommend dr Pilschik over dr Worth. As far as receptionists, they are bad everywhere, but their manager Kimberly is a helpful and sensible one.
