February 18, 2015

My first eye was done by resident Zog. He was great but felt better having second eye done by Dr. Wirostko. My confidence in her is extremely high.

February 17, 2015

Very Good

February 15, 2015

My condition has improved with medication even though it has been hard to diagnose. I feel as though Dr. Wirostko is being very thorough, persistent and caring to make a diagnosis.

February 09, 2015

Dr. W is sending me to a specialist to confirm a possible retinoschisis. I think she gave me basic information without going into specifics to a.) avoid frightening me and b.) have more facts available to her before making a diagnosis. I can't answer some of the above as I am not sure what treatment, F/U care, or meds will entail.

February 08, 2015

appreciate physician's candor and concern

January 25, 2015

Dr Wirotsko was extremely thorough in her attempts to diagnose my problem. She was generous in her time and outlined an approach to get to the heart of the matter for subsequent treatment. She even responded to my email!

January 20, 2015

Dr. Wirostko if great, I just wish she was available more often.

January 18, 2015

my concerns are not with my specialist, she is awesome. My concerns are with the system of operations and expectations of the entire managed care system

December 08, 2014

my care provider is the only Dr I have had since my condition developed that actually explained problems and ideas to involve me in my treatment

November 15, 2014

Care provider is a wonderful, caring person who truly enjoys her job

November 09, 2014

Caring, knowledgeable, took all the time I needed to understand my multiple conditions and their interrelationship. I now have a game plan moving forward.

October 11, 2014

I feel I received excellent care from Dr. Wirostko. She explained everything to me and made sure I understood what I needed to do.

October 10, 2014

I was seen by two residents and the attending. Very good care. All of the doctors and technicians were couteous and very professional.

September 10, 2014

THOROUGH CARING DOCTOR, SPENT ADEQUATE TIME WITH PATIENT

First experience with these care providers

May 16, 2014

wonderful dr.

April 16, 2014

I have already recommended the doctor.

April 14, 2014

I had an eye infection that the Dr. did not address and very dry eyes with my eyelid sticking to my eye It's like she didn't have time to listen to my other concerns. When I left 2 hours later they did not give me any eye protection and I forgot to ask as I drove into the sun, Hard and difficult drive home to Centerville. The Dr. was busy with another patient she was trying to get to the hospital.

April 07, 2014

My care provider, Dr. Barbara Wirostko, is an excellent doctor. My only complaint was the amount of time I had to wait until I saw her; while I arrived on time for my appointment, I waited in the waiting room for nearly 30 minutes and then spent time with the nurse/assistant. After that, my wait was well over an hour before seeing the doctor.

March 12, 2014

Dr W was amazing and shows the highest level of professionalism and care.

February 23, 2014

I am not on any meds and I definitely have the utmost confidence in Dr. Wirostko.

January 23, 2014

My first exam was by a fellow and he was excellent. Very calming when it came to a rather nasty testing procedure he had to do on my right eye. Dr. Wirotsko also saw me and she was pleasant and nice. They both made a bad day an awful lot nicer.

January 20, 2014

I didn't ask any questions. Dr. explained my condition.

November 30, 2013

My doctor is competent, compassionate & caring.

November 25, 2013

The best Ophthalmologist I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

September 02, 2013

I was impressed with the thoroughness of the care provider (and knowledge)

June 25, 2013

This was a very positive experience.

June 04, 2013

June 04, 2013

Dr Wirostko was professional and easily understandable
