Saved My Life
Dr. Wolter took on my case a year ago. It was complicated, something a run of the mill urologist will rarely if ever see. I arrived to meet him, he couldn't have been more helpful, friendly, courteous and professional. He cleared out his schedule for me, I went through several diagnostic procedures during my first visit. At the end of that day, he had me scheduled for a complex surgery a few weeks later. Dr. Wolter took the time to explain to me what was wrong and what would be done to fix the problem(s) I was facing. I had to have 2 additional procedures after the surgery, both performed by Dr. Wolter, and a year later, my life has been largely returned to me. The staff in his practice is incredible, as are his associates and the hospital. I cannot say enough good about them.

Phenomenal Surgeon/Physician
I cannot thank Dr. Wolter and his fantastic team enough. I had a mid urethral sling that was eroding only a year or so after it was installed by another physician. This caused me constant discomfort, frequent UTIs, and a significantly decreased quality of life. I was desperate to find a solution. My research took me to the Mayo Clinic, and I am so grateful to have found Dr. Wolter when I did. He immediately came up with a creative solution to remove my eroding sling, fix my incontinence, and completed an outpatient urethral reconstruction surgery. Within a couple of months I had my quality of life back. Dr. Wolter is a phenomenal surgeon, a patient and caring physician, and his staff was always helpful and kind. I cannot recommend him enough.

Did not address concerns after multiple visits, and was both rude and condescending after I offered my own diagnosis and thoughts on what was going on. His knowledge and treatment options for the specific condition I was seeing him for were extremely out of date. I was essentially told to wait for my symptoms to worsen and return later. I had to ask him to examine me physically, and he was not thorough at all. He was so interested in dismissing my concerns he was not able to make a positive diagnosis. Altogether, my appointments cost around $800 with an insurance copay, and Dr. Wolter was extremely dismissive my patient concerns. This was a complete waste of time, and money. I scheduled with a new urologist at a different clinic and have been receiving much better care. After a thorough physical examination they ordered a penile ultrasound and CONFIRMED the diagnosis I had been trying to give to Dr. Wolter. Do not blindly trust this Dr. because of the clinic he works at. Horrible!

Dr. Wolter did the DaVinci robot-assisted sacrocolpopexy and sling surgery in 2011 at Mayo Clinic. I was in and out in 24 hours. I have not had any problems. I found Dr Wolter to have a pleasant bedside manor and he explained the procedure and what to expect in terms that I could understand. I would like to recommend him! But I am having trouble finding him. (No longer at Mayo?)

Following surgery for prostate cancer I was left with very troublesome urinary incontinence. My local doctor advised a male sling procedure. I went to Dr Wolter for an outside opinion. After his assessment he explained I would not be served well with the sling procedure and he recommended the artificial urinary sphincter AMS 800. It has been several months since my surgery and I'm so pleased. It truly is a life-changing procedure. Special thanks to Dr KXG.
