Ratings for Dr. Kimberly M. Wirths
Do not see this dr. She is neither knowlegible nor thorough. I also question her integrty. I am a transplant patient and saw her for only 7 months. The first time I saw her was for my back pain and to let her know my condition. I gave her my kidney doctors info, which she didn't really care to take. I wanted to see a PT for my back pain, instead she gave me a prescription and told me to ask the pharmacist if it would interfere with my meds or go thru my kidney. I found out from the pharmacy that the drug did both. Dr Wirths should've looked up that information for me and because she didn't it was a waste of my time to go see her and to see the pharmacist. After 2 weeks numberous of phone calls to the dr's office, I finally got a referal. I thought to myself, anyone can make mistakes, so I continued to see her, but my other visits were the same. I would say 4 out of 5 times were bad experiences. The 1 time it was good was when I saw the Nurse Practioner. Do not see this doctor.
This was my first visit to this doctor, for an annual exam and pap smear. Dr. Wirths talked with me first and answered my questions about medications I would have to stop or change when my husband and I start trying to conceive. She was very gentle with the pap smear - one of the best at this procedure that I've experienced. The staff was excellent as well - polite and kind - and they went out of their way to find an allergist for me that takes my insurance. The office itself was pleasant with appropriate measures for privacy of health care information. I am extremely impressed by Dr. Wirth's and her staff's professionalism and efficiency. The only complaint I can think of was a short wait in the exam room, but really, that happens everywhere. I will be going back to this doctor.
I was referred to this Doctor by the ER after I had severe stomach pains. I am not from the area and didn't have a primary care. When my boss heard where I was referred, she advised she had a few friends who had a bad experience with this Doctor. I decided to give her a shot anyway. After waiting 2 hours to see her, she told me I needed a stomach ultrasound (what the ER had already told me, and sent me to see her for). She sent me back to OP regional. Her staff scheduled me a week later and did not accommodate my schedule. OP told me nothing showed up in my ultrasound and the Doctor would need to have me take further tests. I received a postcard a week later from Dr. Wirths office saying my test results were fine. No other follow up, although they have attempted to bill my insurance 3 times already. I should have trusted my boss, who knows the area very well. I will never see this doctor again!
I have had Dr. Wirths for longer than anyone on here so far. I am extremely unhappy and avoid going to the doctor. Why have I kept her then? I guess it is just the known versus the unkown. Prepare for rudeness from her and the staff, although once you get to know the staff personally they warm up to you. Tammy is my favorite. I have had records on important tests lost for months...still lost. When my teen became pregnant Dr. Wirth's personal judgements seemed to affect her job. She was cold, rude and even more condescending. My daughter changed to an OBGYN who was wonderful to her and supportive and helpful through a rough time. I just avoid going. I have health issues going on but I just dread even the thought of going in there to deal with all the rudeness. I long for a doctor with whom I could schedule a "consultation" and design a life wellness plan. Someone who could review the totality of my life and help me be well and help my family be well. Let me know if this exists!
We have been with Dr. wirth for about 7 years. We did not had any issue until recently we had our 2nd child. She is poor in delivering the baby. she has caused injury to my new born and my wife with irreversable damage for her lifetime. Now we are living with it. We are exploring various medical options to cure. I would not recommend Dr. with for any of my friends. We do not feel, She has enough knowledge in delivering the babies.any thing about child birth.
Dr Wirths was my mother's primary care physician. I always thought it odd that my mom was decades older than Wirth's other clients. Unfortunately I never queried Wirth's gerontological knowledge until it was too late. When my mother began to show early stage dementia Wirth freaked out. She immediately wanted to send her to an memory care facility and would not consider any other options. Wirths became annoyed when we brought in a competent gerontologist who thankfully suggested alternatives. In short my mother is happy and doing well despite Wirth. And Wirth is no longer her physician. PLEASE challenge Wirths or other physician's skill before accepting their "knowledge" at face value!
Dr. Wirths has been my family doctor for over 8 years, and I love her. I have fibromyalgia, which is a difficult condition to diagnose and treat. She always listens to me and works with me to find the best treatments for me. She can be a little abrupt, but I think it's just because she is extremely efficient and assertive. Most of the nurses are sweet and helpful, and the office staff is too. My only complaint would be a few long wait-times, but even that has improved in the past year. I have recommended her several times, and absolutely would again.
I had a bad pap smear, got a letter in the mail from her with pamplets about Copolscopy, HPV and Cervical cancer and a little note telling me to make an appointment to see her for a Copolscopy. I was terrified, based on the included literature, but made the appointment and went in. I got right in and she started the copolscopy. Times in the past when I've seen her she's been very warm, friendly and helpful however this time she was different. She was very quiet, very cold, and said almost nothing at all. When she'd finished the procedure she told me to lay there and rest a bit then she and the nurse left. I lay there, and lay there, and lay there. Finally someone opened the door and was surprised I was still there, everyone else had left. Not only was I a little scared about what was going on, but now I really felt like no one in that office gave a damn.
