I have only been a patient of Dr. Wolff for a week; however I am looking forward to a long relationship with this compassionate, professional and dynamic provider. I have had a right eye muscle problem for a few years that has gone misdiagnosed and has been mistreated prior to going to Dr. Wolff. This physician immediately went to work with ruling out problems and then identifying the issue in very short order. He kept his good humor with me while I expressed anxiety and fear over what was making my vision less than adequate. We are early into treatment so the outcome is not exactly known. I'm okay with that because I know my eye health is in Dr. Wolff's expert hands. In one week this doctor took the time to call me twice, had to speak with a MRI scheduler, talk with my insurance company and have two consultations with my primary care provider. He not only did his job, he went well above the call of duty. The current treatment has revolutionized my eye sight in the past 5 days. I fully recommend this physician for your eyes. This may sound dramatic, but Dr. Don Wolff has changed my life.
I have been in several times and find that my experience has been nothing short of professional and courteous. The staff has been fine. Clean office and good location. I would recommend Dr. Wolff over a standard mall shop run by non-Medical Doctors. When its my/family's health, I rather be seen by a MD.
Horrible experience! The doc's office seems to prey on unsuspecting old patients who get referred to him by their primary care physicians. I am 73 years old and my visit which is covered by Medicare and Medical ended up being billed for $225!!! for a half an hour visit. Well, the eye pressure was checked. The insurance didn't pay for $134.90 out of this amount. The office failed to warn that they don't take Medical and about the deductible on Medicare. When asked, I was assured that the visit will be covered. Anyway - now they threaten to turn the whole thing to the collections. Shameless! I live on a limited income of about $600 a month and can't afford to pay that much for a visit. The attempts to negotiate the bill have always ended up with the inability of his office to get the right info about the Medical. But this is not all. During the visit the doc kept pushing his glasses and contacts and was very irritated when we politely rejected the offers. Very awkward. It feels like they are trying to survive at the cost of the most vulnerable. I would never go there again.
