Not at all courteous to contact patients back and communicate with them about their reports and future paln. Very Very Disappointing .. I usually never like to give negative review but this time His service/lack of importance of patients problems made me write this review. Very very Frustrating..

I had never seen Dr. Rolfe before; he stepped in for my regular doctor. This was my 9 month post op from a total knee replacement. Without reviewing anything but my most recent visit, he launched into a discussion about my BMI. I had come expecting to hear how my knee was doing but left feeling discouraged and shamed. Dr. Rolfe did not seem to care about me as a person. Every overweight person knows that losing weight will help with aches and pains; we need encouragement, not shaming.

I've seen Dr Rolfe for over seven years now for a bad knee. Though a surgeon, he has worked very hard to keep me from having to go under the knife. His procedures (in my case, largely exercise, physical therapy, & shots) have worked beautifully for me, and delayed knee replacement (which is pretty much inevitable in my case) for years. He's very thorough, very willing to discuss your exact condition and what your options are, and provides great information on test results. I highly recommend him

I am not normally a patient of Dr. Rolfe's. As my usual orthopedic surgeon is on vacation, he stepped in for an urgent surgery. During our brief encounter, he was very thorough in both diagnosing and explaining the problem and potential outcomes. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone else seeking treatment.

I saw Dr. Rolfe as suggested by another surgeon for a second opinion for ongoing hip pain. He reviewed my previous MRI, and immediately said that I would need surgery. He ordered a second MRI. After reviewing this one, he did not say surgery was inevitable. He referred me to yet another surgeon! He asked me if I had seen this other surgeon yet. What? Left frustrated and confused.

I have had both ACLs replaced and a femur repaired by Dr. Rolfe, one in 2001 while in high school and the other in 2009. If you show interest in your recovery and are motivated to get well, he will spend a lot of time discussing training and recovery with you. Both knees have held up well and performed at a high level playing soccer, skiing, backpacking, and weight lifting. I highly recommend him.

Took the time to actually listen. After the surgery he gave me a DVD of the procedure, talking me through what he was doing, while he was doing it. I have recommended him to others already.

No time spent post op to explain procedure or care of surgical post care. Surgery had to be redone a year later
