Brooklyn, NY |
Dr. Wolfson has been my Gastro for 5 years. Throughout that time, my issue has gotten bad enough that I have been hospitalized 3 times in the last month. Dr. Wolfson does not seem to care about this, and is simply continuing as if nothing has changed.

Incorrect diagnosis, over booking procedures, filthy operating area-- not much of a testamonial for dr. wolfson .

Continuation..plus when I went to see dr wolfson for my post op diagnosis, he said there was nothing wrong. I questioned him further, saying that I'm still having stomach pains and he checked my records and said, " oh yes, you have diverticulitis "!
