Dr. William Wirostko earned his medical degree in 1994 from the University of Virginia after completing his bachelor’s degree at Colgate University in New York. After his transitional internship at St. Luke’s Hospital in Denver, Colorado, he came to the Medical College of Wisconsin Eye Institute in 1995, where he did his residency in ophthalmology and a fellowship in vitreoretinal surgery. Upon graduation in 2000, Dr. Wirostko became a full-time faculty member at MCW. Since then, he has been actively involved in patient care, research and education of medical students, ophthalmology residents and vitreoretinal surgical fellows. He is recognized in “Best Doctors in America,” and his clinical practice in combination with his research efforts has allowed him to publish more than 45 peer-reviewed articles and 14 book chapters on ophthalmology.

I was a patient of another doctor who left. The doctor I saw went through the motions to get me done. There was no sharing of findings. Just come back in two years and see your eye doctor. This appt was a waste of my time
Everyone was very efficient and considerate.
My Doctor is so kind, Profesional, explains everything. He puts me at ease, let's me know when to contact the clinic, he does a thorough exam of my eyes. I feel he listens to me and my concerns.
Excellent experience with all staff that we te involved with my c as te and visit- from the receptionist to the doctor.
It was excellent!
Dr. Wirostko goes above and beyond expectations, I contacted him about a concern I wanted him to be aware of for an appointment I had 5 days in the future. He telephoned me, personally that same day and moved my appointment up to the very next morning. That is exceptional in my book!
OUTSTANDING care and so grateful for the help I received. Dr Wirostko and his team are excellent at what they do. I feel lucky to have such high-quality healthcare available here locally (if I ever need it again).

I found everyone to be professional and working efficiently during my visit.
I was very thankful that although I was a little late, the provider was still able to see me. There were many people waiting to be seen after 3 o clock. Yet things ran very smoothly. The staff did their jobs well without rushing anyone or cutting corners. I travelled all the way across the county so I was very pleased with the service.
