My husband was a new patient to Dr. Wolfe. Dr. Wolfe came into the room, introduced himself with a firm handshake first to my husband and then to me. He sat down and asked questions to understand the reason for the visit and to document my husband's medical history. He listened patiently, was very thorough in his evaluation and made suggestions for treatment. Both of us left his office feeling confident with his knowledge and his empathetic care.

I had two appointments with Dr. Wolfe. Both times he appeared to be in a huge rush to finish with me. On the second visit he told me I had an incurable, serious disease, told me I'd be taking a medication, and got up to leave. NOTHING about prognosis, pain management, what side effects the medication may cause. I said wait, I have questions, and he did sit back down but looked annoyed and answered curtly, clearly in a hurry. Avoid this man! This is not how care should be.

He was impatient and rude when he did not believe my report of pain and developing symptoms. I now have 7 documented autoimmune illnesses.
