Dear Dr Scott Wolfe, It's easy to see why you are recognized as one of the best doctors in New York City, an honor very well deserved. I am very grateful to you and your incredible staff. Your secretary went beyond the call of duty… very professional, very accommodating, very kind. Your physician's assistant Carly was always available to answer questions and give guidance. She is a credit to her profession. I received excellent care and am aware of how fortunate I am to be your patient. Sincerely, Jo Frances Cipolla East Amerst, NY

Dr. Scott Wolfe, aside from being a top-rated surgeon, has outstanding bedside manner. This is important to me. I like to know the facts, and have them presented to me in a clear and respectful manner. I saw him for a tricep tendon issue, and we agreed to pursue several months of PT. The problem remained, and so I elected to do surgery. It went perfectly. I'm lucky, but I also had a good doctor! His supporting staff are also very good, friendly and knowledgable. He is a fixer!

I went to dr wolfe for ulnar nerve transposition in 12-2017. I did so because his reviews were high and he seemed very experienced. However several months after my surgery I still get pain from my elbow to my pinky if I lift over 4lb weights or pull things hard. This wasn’t the case before Surgery.Plus I have a lot of scar tissue which seems excessive Everytime I followed up Dr wolfe was never in his office or followed up with me as I am under his care for a full year

Dr. Wolfe’s excellence as a highly-skilled hand surgeon are as superb as his ability to engage with patients and put them at ease. Sensitive to his patients, Dr. Wolfe takes the time necessary to be sure his patients are comfortable before and after surgery and as he carefully performs delicate surgery. I know from colleagues and my own recent surgery just how exceptional Dr. Wolfe is. I had peace of mind knowing that I was in the safe hands of Dr. Wolfe and his professional, caring staff.

I cannot begin to fully explain how grateful we are to Dr. Wolfe. Every step of the way we were met with support & compassion. From pre-op to post-op follow up appointments, every question and concern was addressed. Because of Dr. Wolfe, Robert is back on the field participating in the sports he loves. The results are phenomenal. We have a very happy young man and one very happy Mom. Thank you Dr. Wolfe!
