It’s been an adjustment dealing with this snd im 100% certain I would not coped as well mentally snd physically without Dr Wolfe snd his great staff. he’s mega smart, thoughtful, communicative, compassionate and sane. No doom snd gloom but no false hope either. He’s my go to doc…i trust him and I don’t do anything without checking with him.

My primary doctor suggested that I see Dr. Wolfe for a consultation regarding my asthma. I just loved Dr. Wolfe's approach. This physician goes straight to the point, speaks in plain English and respects his patient's concerns. He came up with a plan that made perfect sense to me, an I will now have regular follow-ups with him because I trusted every word he said. I highly recommend Dr. Wolfe to anyone who suffers from breathing issues that may be unclear or hard to control.

What a wonderful doctor and pleasant to be with. I discovered Dr Wolfe after high praise from a nurse who used to know him. I had given up on my symptoms. I had seen a Pilmonologist & was told that my ”lungs are fine & no asthma.” Yet my symptoms were quite real & still persistent. Very frustrating, but I wasn’t about to give up & throw in the towel. I sought a second opinion. The usual preliminary breathing assessments were done, & then Dr Wolfe walked in. After reviewing the results, he said that a chemical detected in my breath that indicated asthma & that I had some sort of damage to my lower lungs that although did’t require immediate attention for, he wanted ”to keep an eye on it.” I shared that the other doctor hadn’t even taken X-rays. Aghast, he said ”HE BLEW YOU OFF. HE JUST BLEW YOU OFF.” I’m finally on my way to recovery. And he’s always such a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended.
