I've had bad delay experiences every time I've gone into this office. I'm contemplating switching from Optum all together.
It took the doctor 50 min. last time we were there. My daughter becomes very agitated waiting so long.
She was very caring & made sure she listened to my son.
Dr. Johnson-Wirt was fantastic as always. We are very happy with the care she provides.
When I explained my frustrations about being seen. I hr. after appointment I was given terrible excuses that I had solutions for.
She always spends a lot of time and answers all my questions.
She is always friendly and informative.
*Dr. Johnson-Wirt is an excellent, extremely caring, and overall awesome physician. Physicians of her caliber are very rare these days. Please treat her well and retain her. She is extremely valuable!!
Very nice and courteous. She was very informative and thorough.
I would not recommend because wait times in clinic are so long.
She was awful. She did not introduce herself upon entering the room. There was no acknowledgment of the wait time. She talked over me then concluded by saying it really wasn't a "big deal." My autistic son was quite disturbed by the conclusion. My children have been seen by Dr Nitcher, primarily and other physicians in the practice over the past 12 years. We've been thoroughly pleased. I would never allow my children to be seen by her again.
She always takes time to talk & listen.
Called 5 times for test results before being called back. Waited 75 minutes and only saw the doctor for 10. Not okay!
We really enjoy our pediatrician (*Aimee Johnson-Wirt)!
She is always kind and thorough!
She was very helpful and thorough answering my questions, and great with my toddler.
The doctor was great & took her time with Claire.
She was very patient & understanding with both children who clearly did not want to be at the doctor's office. She was great!
