Dr. Wolfson performed a double cervical discectomy and fusion on me July1, 2016. As of today I am doing great. I continue to be a patient of Dr. Wolfson due to multiple other spinal issues. Dr. Wolfson and his staff were amazing through the whole process and continue to be. If I could say neck surgery was a good experience, I would! I was treated with compassion and respect. I am a big fan of Dr. Wolfson, Alicia (his Nurse Practitioner), and Krystle! I have my life back!

DR. WOLFSON IS A WONDERFUL PHYSICIAN AND WAS VERY THOROUGH IN EXPLAINING ALL TREATMENT OPTIONS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM AS A DOCTOR.

I was getting to the point where my back pain was an everyday thing and it kept me from doing the things I like to do. Dr. Wolfson performed an ALIF on me and I am back to doing the things I love with little or no pain

Dr. Wolfson was great all the way until the point where he released my husband. Dr. Wolfson told us that my husband would never be able to work again then upon release he released him back to work with limitations without making us aware. When I went to the office to speak to them they acted as if I had committed a crime and would not speak to me.

Dr. Wolfson and his staff are extremely rude and have no consideration for the patients. I have waited for several hours in the office to be seen. I have been told I have an appointment with him but then I have to see the nurse practitioner Alicia. I pay my money and my time is wasted. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME.

Eric Wolfson performed an anterior and posterior lumbar fusion on 3/31/2015 at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport, MS. I went through months of recovery and then months of physical therapy with zero results for all the pain and suffering I went through. Finally I received a certified letter from Wolfsson telling me he was dropping me as a patient since there was a loss of therapeutic relationship. Bottom line is he screwed up, his staff is inept and he does not care about me as a patient.
He is an awesome doctor and person.
His staff was very helpful and his skills etc in the operating room was second to none. He fixed what two other orthopaedic surgeons failed to fix. I highly recommend Dr. Wolfson.
