I unfortunately see more than my fair share of Doctors. Dr. Woelfel is at the very top of my list. Professional , open to questions and discussion, looks deep into your condition until he is satisfied that both of you are on the right track. My recent visit with him, his team Jason, Connor, and Helen was excellent.

My experience with Dr. Woelfel was excellent. He took detailed notes on my history, reviewed my past procedures from other cardiologists, consulted with me three times by phone within 24 hrs. and reviewed my case with his colleagues. He carefully explained the situation and finally gave me his valued opinion. I couldn't recommend him more.

An excellent doctor. He just performed a catheter ablation for my SVT. He is very knowledgeable, caring, and professional. He takes the time to listen, explain, and understands any concerns that a patient would have. He certainly knows his field and enjoys what he does. I highly recommend him as he's very personable and also very knowledgeable in his field. I am a very satisfied patient and highly recommend him.

Dr. Woeffel preformed a cardiac ablation on my heart for an arrhythmia I have had since I was a young child. He was so carrying and understanding of how very anxious I was going into surgery. Just can't say how extremely happy I was with my choice of doctors. In my book He's the best!

Our experience was extremely stressful, unprofessional and painful for our Mother (the patient) and us. He outright lied to us (wasn't a misunderstanding). He took 3 extra days to do what we were told needed to be done (was told procedure would/should take place on Fri., finally happened on Mon. which added 3 extra days in the hospital). I would NEVER recommend him for anything and if I thought that we could have had another doctor without added stress for our Mom it would have happened.
