Dr Wolfla and his team are very organized in their process. I had been through 3 months of trying everything possible before I saw the doctor. He reviewed my file and explained what needed to be done for relief from the pain. He even took the time to explain and show what he saw on the MRI so my husband and myself knew we were taking the right next step. Dr Wolfla and his team provided plenty of information before and after the surgery that I knew what to expect every step. He truly cares for his patient and their outcome.

Dr. Wolfla listened to everything I had to say and was very compassionate. He validated that the pain I was feeling was very real. He got me in for surgery 10 days after my consultation. This man gave me my life back, I am so grateful.

Dr. Wolfla is personable yet professional. He was thorough in his examination and diagnosis and clear in his recommendation and the reasons for it. Surgery was scheduled promptly and results are exactly as expected. Dr. Wolfla and his team are scrupulous and detailed in their post-op care and follow up. Couldn’t have asked for a better surgical experience.

Dr.Wolfla was very up front about what he could do for me and explaining everything. This is my 3rd back surgery and he is the best doctor I have had! I’ve been seeing doctors for many years and never had someone be as honest and following threw with what needs to be done on my end. I would recommend him highly and know that he has your best interest in mind and also that he is someone who takes great pride in what he does, he wants to help you get back to life and couldn’t be happier!
