    Dr. Wurth is always good, but I'd like to give a shoutout to the resident (Luke H.) as I found him to be especially good at breaking down information and talking about issues in a way my 10 year could understand.

    Dr Wurth is always attentive and adjusts medications and treatment plans to match my concerns along with my son's symptoms. He has had a resident our last few visits and they have been very attentive, informed. I have not had to repeat symptoms or concerns once Dr Wurth joined the visit, and all have kept my son calm and happy during his visits.

      Dr. Wurth took time to explain the plan of care for my daughter and the reasoning behind the plan. He always makes sure before he leaves the room that all our questions are answered and that we have no additional questions or concerns. Always recommend him to people.

      I am very discouraged by the instance of the provider to use a specific, new product. By the end of the appointment, the physician had mentioned a new medication 5 times although I had already said we did not want to use that medicine for our child.

      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.
