Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Unprofessional and immature. "Dr." Wolfe thinks its ok to make negative comments about other doctors to his patients. He also thinks he needs to give a rebuttal to negative reviews of himself. Immature.

Do yourself a favor and Do not go to him. He does not have any empathy or caring about your pain or you, only interested in getting you in and out. I could go on but will keep it short, don't go to him!

Office staff is extremely rude which is sad because Dr. Wolfe is great. I won't go back because of the staff.

I have been a patient of Dr. Wolfe for nearly 6yrs. He has always gone above and beyond to help me anyway he could, he listens to what I have to say and genuinely cares about what I need. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a pain specialist. - Tracey Book

I have been going to Dr Wolfe for about 10 years. First trying to get a handle on pain and trying to prolong surgery, the after surgery trying to again prolong my next round of surgery. He is very caring, and is very good at what he does. He has always taken the time to explain what course of action was needed, and then when he believes it is time to stop putting off the inevitable. Recommend him to anyone who has spent so much time dealing with pain, and wants to resume life again!

Without Dr. Wolfe I would not be able to carry on every day chores or play with my grandchildren or have any kind of a productive life. He is a very kind and caring person and his office reflects him as well. If you need a pain specialist I recommend Dr. Wolfe you won't be disappointed and you will have the life and health you deserve. Shirl McCauley

He didn't take time to diagnos me. He never touched me. I have been in pin for years. He doesn't seem to want to take time to help you in any way. I also heard he told someone I just wanted drugs and no other treatment. Wrong - he gave me 2 injections my second visit and must not have remembered when I asked him in December 2015 about the spinal cord surgery.

My experience was terrible. He did absolutely nothing for me. He never physically examined me. Never laid one finger on me. He is to much in a hurry and doesn't take his time with his patients. I'm very disappointed. I've been miserable for months. So much for his motto. It's bologna.
