I had emergency surgery and Dr. Wolpert was there seeing another patient when I was in the ER. One of the ER staff asked him to consult on my case and he said he would perform the surgery right away as it was unlikely I would survive until morning. thanks to him I not only survived until morning but am still going strong, almost 3 years later.

Recommended by pain Doc, whom I love. Trying to be as concise as possible. May 19th=infection, June 1st=horrible pain lower rt quadrant. TESTING galore. Went to Wolpert. I knew appendix & lesions. I knew exploratory lap. needed. He said haughtily, "let's wait 2 weeks and visit it again then". WHAT? Made appt w/my surgeon. Agreed, found HUGE lesions & ACUTE APPENDICITIS. Listen to your patients Doc. They know their body. I knew you didn't believe me. Your haughtiness could have killed me.
