    Dr Wurth is a wonderful provider and UK is fortunate to have him! He takes his time with his patients and addresses all questions and concerns. He is very up to date on his knowledge of treatment options and was able to cite current and ongoing research data related to different treatment options we may want to consider. His work to help bring Plaforzia OIT to our area shows his passion and dedication to help his pediatric food allergy patients.

    *Dr. Wurth is wonderful. We drive 2.5 hours for the visits, but to us it's more than worth it. We're confident in his care.

    *Dr. Wurth gave me an action plan and next steps when I was feeling defeated. I felt much better about our plan after the appointment vs. before.

      We saw *Dr. Wurth so he could clear our son for ENT surgery on the 17th. We were informed that we couldn't schedule our next ap t. in July since his original dr. was retiring. But I appreciate *Dr. Wurth seeing my son so we could still get his surgery.

      *Dr. Wurth was excellent at explaining what was going on and actually asked my child questions instead of just myself.
