Dr. Wolf is an excellent eye surgeon in my opinion. His examination of my eyes for cataract surgery was very thorough. He gave me my options and answered all my questions. I knew exactly what the surgery would entail. His staff of nurses are awesome. They made sure I was comfortable and relieved my fears by again answering my questions. I also cannot say enough about his office staff..I had a very good experience.

Dr Wolff was recommended to me By Dr Katrina Van Patten who I had been seeing me for eye exams and glasses for a number of years. Dr Van Patten referred me to Dr because my eyes being in such a condition that they required surgery. I subsequently made an appt with Dr Wolff who performed the surgery. The surgery has been completed and now I have long, midrange and reading capability. Dr Wolf, his support staff, & the two Brittany(s) & Shannon in the office are absolutely excellent.
