Dr. Wolff's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wolff "Robert S. Wolff, MD, was raised in central California, and went on to graduate from Amherst College in Massachusetts. In 1991, he received his medical degree from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. He then completed his ophthalmology training at the University of Minnesota in 1995, during which he was a recipient of the Minnesota Sight and Hearing Association Research Award. Following that, Dr. Wolff spent time in Anchorage, providing emergency eye care for the state of Alaska. Seeking a return to his western roots, Dr. Wolff joined a practice in Reno in 1996, where he spent over seven years building a reputation for high quality eye care that patients could depend on. Finding the Carson-Gardnerville-Tahoe region underserved, Dr. Wolff opened Sierra Nevada Eye Center, Ltd in Carson City in 2004, where patients can receive the same high quality ophthalmic care that he is known for. Dr. Wolff opened his Reno office in 2008. Dr. Wolff is Board Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology.

My office visit experiences and surgical experience with Dr. Wolff were excellent. I appreciate his medical expertise, his Reno office staff and their caring attitudes, and his excellent surgical facility and staff in Carson City. I have had experiences with several different ophthalmology doctors in Reno and felt it was more than worth the extra time to go to his surgical facility in Carson City. I am very pleased with the outcome of my laser cataract surgery and my multi-focal lens.

can’t speak highly enough about Dr. Robert S.

The results exceeded all expectations as well as the follow-up exams and treatments for minor complaints, including dry and runny eyes. I highly recommend Dr. Wolff to anyone who is seeking the highest degree of experience and quality of care.

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.
