Dr. Wirthwein is amazing. She is always so compassionate and understanding. She takes her time and never makes you feel rush. She includes us in all decisions and courses of treatment. She is a huge asset to ETCH! We just adore her.

Everything went well however my prescription was canceled and my pharmacy wouldn't give it to me until they contacted the office again... They had to give an emergency supply.

It is confusing to not be able to have bloodwork done at your facility because my insurance doesn't cover your facility. I dont know why they don't pay for it. I had to go to UT lab Corp. The dr didn't have the results for my daughter's appointment even though I took her 3 weeks prior. I work for Knox schools. It would be nice if it could be worked out.

Dr. Wirthwein is always outstanding. She is very thorough and goes out of her way to make sure our son is comfortable. If it weren't for her prescribing the growth hormone, our son would be a high school student at 4 foot 9 inches tall. Thanks to her he has reached 5 ft 8 inches and has a shot at reaching completely normal height before age 18 . He is no longer being bullied at school for his size and is developing confidence in his abilities! Bravo! Keep up the good work! And thank you for all you do! You have no idea what a difference this makes!

My family had as pleasant an experience as possible given our 3 year old had surgery. We have 100% confidence in her team and the staff at ETNCH.
