Specialties

Dr. David M Wolfson has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

An excellent gastroenterologist!!!...

I have been a patient of Dr. David Wolson for about 30 years... In those 30 years I have found Dr Wolfson and his staff to be concerned, courteous and caring... The only time that have have a long wait is when Dr. Wolfson is involved in a procedure... Otherwise, the wait time is not that long... When you finally go in to be seen, Dr. Wolfson shows a great deal of concern... He asks question... And also answers yours... He NEVER rushes you out... He is an excellent Doctor!!!...

DR. WOLFSON- Incompetant Dangerous Doctor-NO Heart

Dr. Wolfson injured my esophagus shoving a device down my throat during an upper endoscopy with NO anesthesia. He prescribed the wrong meds and I could hardly breathe &was in respiratory distress .. called him up for help gasping for air and he told me NOT to bother him, he replied "DIAL 911 and LEAVE ME ALONE" He refused to give me the phone number for Hafstolah ambulance so i can be rushed to Maimonides Hospital and said, "you have 2 fingers, open the yellow pages". I almost died.. Thank God I got to the hospital in time and was treated for his dreadful negligence... He is a heartless Incompetant doctor.

This doctor spent less than five minutes speaking with me and he was my doctor for several years until I found another GI. He always wrote a prescription and insisted that I take the medication and wait for my condition to clear up on its own. He pushed for an endoscopy and a colonoscopy which I feel was not needed as this is where the money is.

He is amongst the worst of any doctors I ever saw. On the several occasions I went to him, he was pushing for an endoscopy which I refused. The last time, he just shoved the tube down my throat cutting the inside of my cheeks. Afterwards, I take car service and see only Manhattan doctors - it is worth the $80/ roundtrip.
