Dr. Wolfe is ready available when needed. After L & R hip replacements in 2004 at Salem, VA I had many follow ups in later years. In 2016 I saw him at Riverside in Roanoke, VA —all well. I am now 87 & week after Easter I was having little back pain becoming worse. Ended up in Lewis-Gale ER Apr 26,2020 with severe pain in back & limbs. With X-rays & meds & referrals I learned Dr. Wolfe was no longer in the Roanoke area. A follow up with a nurse assistant at Carilion Othopedic on Franklin Rd. I learned Dr. Wolfe was in N.O. Having lived in Harvey 70’s I began my search choosing Oschner first. I am so happy for this fantastic Dr. but wish he were closer & he could review me again. He is the best so maybe a call will give me encouragement as still pain down left leg & a numb foot. Douglas Ann Slusher Sat May 9, 2020 Roanoke, VA
