She is very professional, experienced and smart. But she is also caring. When scoping the throat or examining the ears, she is very gentle.

Dr. Wirtshafter took care of my son many years ago. Recently, I was having pain and ear fullness and decided to visit her myself. I was highly satisfied with both the staff and the doctor. Dr. Wirtshafter took the time to listen and explain. I would highly recommend her to others.

Not only did this office squeeze me in the same day, the staff was so friendly and amazing. I did have to wait a little but I just appreciated that they squeezed me in that day. It's almost unheard of for an office to take a new client that day. I have to say Dr. Wirthshafter was by far the nicest, most kind, and amazing Dr I have ever met. She really listened to my concerns and took the time to explain EVERYTHING to me. I even made sure to tell her that I have never met a Dr. like her.

Dr. Wirtshafter and the entire group of Dr's and staff at ENT and Allergy in Parsippany NJ are wonderful. I have been a patient of the group for many years and I am always treated very well. I have a chronic condition so I have regular visits to the office but I am always greeted with a smile and made to feel welcomed by the group. In particular Dr. Wirtshafter is a very gentle Dr. and she always takes the time necessary to help me out. She has performed many in office procedures and two surgeries on me. I am very happy with her and the entire group.

Very professional, very well educated, and very caring. I have had surgery and it worked. Part of my sinus condition is just the way god made me, my sinus's do not drain properly on their own. Dr Wirtshafter has been excellent in diagnosing and treating my perpetual sinus condition.

Dr. Wirtshafter has been trying my 4 year old daughter for about a year. She performed a tonsilectomy, adenoidectomy, and put tubes in her ears. Throughout the consultation process, surgery, and post-op follow-ups Dr. Wirtshafter has been great. She takes time to explain everything and listens to us describe the symptoms and our concerns prior to the surgery. My daughter started off scared but over the course of the year, she has definitely warmed up to Dr. Wirtshafter thanks to her smiling face and cheerful attitude. The only slight complaint I have is that the office can get slightly backed up in the afternoon around allergy season which resulted in a few appointments where we were sitting in the waiting room past our appointment time. But the staff has always been apologetic when this has happened. Great experience and have recommended the office (and Dr. Wirtshafter) to several people.

Dr. Wirtshafter has been my personal sinus specialist for more than a decade. I trust no one like I trust her. She has prevented me from needing surgery through a combination of sheer determination, attention to detail, and proactive solutions. She is an outstanding physician and I would recommend her to anyone in need of special attention.
