Dr. Wolfe does not do surgeries anymore. That is why he already has the shots ready in the room. He has refused to fill out my paperwork for my work and my insurance other than send them a bill. He has a speech rehearsed for all his patients and only wants to talk about himself. Believe all the negative comments. Find another doctor who puts his patients needs first - even if it is only paperwork.
Ft Smith, AR |
I thought he was a good doctor. But when you leave a message the nurse never calls you back. They don't like filling out paper work. And if they don't fill it out the first time. Don't won't correct it either. This does not do what best for his patients. Like he say he will.

His problems outweight mine by his standard. Therefore, concern for my complaints is non existent. He tells me what's wrong with me and it'll just get worse, but if he can suffer through his, I should be able to" suck it up" because I'm not as old as he is.
Germantown, MD |
He was a thoroughly knowledgeable and compassionate doctor. I am not sure why the previous review was so negative. Maybe an offhanded comment set the tone. At any rate, my care at this doctor's hands was extremely competent. I felt both heard and understood. I hope anyone reading the negative review will not be put off. This is a good, competent doctor who had concern for my care. We did two MRIs. He went back to make sure nothing had been missed. I would give him more then five stars.
in Roland, OK |
I think he has been reviewed unfairly.... He is a tell it as it is kind of Doctor. Great personality and personable. The only way I can relate to the unfavorable review is that he has been a doc for many years and he sees many of the same conditions over and over so he has a tendency to skip to his well rehearsed summary of the diagnosis. It may come off as more of a speech then a conversation. My experience has been to butt right in and ask anything you like and he will gladly answer.

I would not even give him one star. Not only did he sexually degrade me by stating no one will notice you have scoliosis unless you're bent over in a skimpy bathing suit but that wasn't the point of the visit. I had not seen an orthopedic doctor in 10 years (I am 25) and I have debilitating back spasms that leave me bed ridden days at a time. he spoke over me the ENTIRE TIME. He NEVER asked any of my symptoms. HORRIBLE. Worthy of a lawsuit.
