Specialties

Dr. David P Wolfe has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Ridiculous charges

Before you leave this office, make sure you know what you will be billed. For 10 minutes his fee was outrageous. This is unethical. Public Beware!

Made me wait 80 minutes because I was late 10 minutes and he claimed had other patients

This morning I arrived 9 minutes late for an 8:15 am appointment, before I had a chance to explain what had happened or apologized Dr. Wolfe decided that he was not going to see me until 9:15 am or I could come back another day. He claimed that he was busy with other patients. I waited alone in the waiting room for about 45 min until his 9:15 appointment came in. After about 30 minutes I went to the bathroom and asked a nurse in the back if Dr. Wolfe was busy with other patients I was told he was making phone calls. He made me wait a total of about 80 minutes just to make the point that I could not be late. He was making phone calls or having coffee all that time. He saw me after his 9:15 am appointment. I have been a patient since 2007 and I have waited for him much more than 10 minutes at a time over the years. I will not be coming back. Fortunately there are other arthritis experts in the area who do not treat their patients so poorly.

I have been treated by Dr. Wolfe for several years for several forms of arthritis, and now for osteoporosis. He has helped me a lot. He is patient and a good listener. He knows his field very well. His technicians, nurses, appointment scheduler, and receptionists are very pleasant. The office is well organized. He sent me for physical therapy in the practice's PT department, which was beneficial. The physical therapist was highly competent and pleasant. Dr. Wolfe is a top doctor. I was referred to him by another top doctor.

I am happy in every way with the practice, especially with my doctor, Dr. David Wolfe. He listened carefully to my concerns and questions, and that made it easy to talk with him about a range of different types of treatment options. He explained the options in a clear and understandable way. The two appointments I have had never felt rushed. There was time to fully discuss all aspects of the treatment plan. Dr. Wolfe is knowledgable, patient, and considerate. I highly recommend him!

I was very impressed with Dr. Wolfe's diagnostic skills and compassionate "bedside" manner. He was very diligent in performing all preliminary tests before prescribing a personalized treatment plan.
