Very competent and professional. I do not like doctors and can read them well in term of expertise. This guy knows his stuff and is the only one I would trust for heart surgery. Had him perform a minimally invasive mitral valve replacement on me. If you want the best Dr Wolfe fits the bill.

Dr. Wolfe repaired my blocks to my heart in November,1998. Now in 2017, my current cardiologist, in Asheville,NC, commented about the excellence of those 6 grafts through nearly 19 years. Thank you, Dr. Wolfe, for your skill and knowledge. JTP
