Patient Comments (4)
Chicago, IL |
Dr, Wolf is very rude and uncaring. He has horrible bedside manor. My husband came in for a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and the doctor was not sensitive to that and showed zero sympathy for him. My husband checked his phone while the doctor was typing the visit summary up on his computer bc he received a message from our babysitter and the doctor practically yelled at him to get off his phone. The doctor also didn't care to hear about my husbands struggles at work due to his MS disease.
I would not recommend Dr. Steven Wolf to anyone. He is extremely rude and uncaring to his patients and their family. His staff unfortunately is not that much better. He initially refused to use a numbing cream on my daughter when filling her baclofen pump. His main nurse, told my daughter, "Next time I see you, I want to see you walking." My daughter is 28, has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair. She has never and will never be able to walk.

I have been a patient of his for over 3 years and I have had excellent care from him. His staff has been great and wait times are usually average of 5 minutes unless he has an emergency.
in Palatine, IL |
Rude, bad manners, disrespectful, impatient and a sad sole, and much more a disgrace to GOOD REPUTABLE CARING DOCTORS.
