Dr. Wolfe is an excellent clinician and diagnostician. He diagnosed me with both asthma and emphysema a few years ago following an especially severe bout with influenza. As an immunologist, he also determined (via allergy testing) that I was no longer allergic to penicillin, which I had been unable to take for years following an outbreak of hives. Being able to take penicillin again is huge, as it is one of the oldest and safest antibiotics around. I recommend Dr. Wolfe most highly!

Dr Wolfe is compassionate, caring and knowledgeable. He takes the time to dig deeply to uncover the root cause, even for “difficult” cases. I trust his judgment and commitment to help me feel my best.

My experiences with Dr Wolfe, his partner and all his staff have been exceptional. I have suffered from allergies all my life and as a result of living in several states, I have experience with multiple allergists. My shots are easy to obtain due to their hours of availability. I receive automated text reminders when it's time for my shots. When I needed to see the doctor for significant illness, the staff worked me in so I could get treatment immediately.
