Specialties

Dr. Gil I Wolfe has the following 4 specialties

  • Clinical Neurophysiology
  • Neuromuscular Medicine
  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.

Encouraging - Hope

Dr. Wolfe diagnosed me with MS in the early 1990's at UTSW in Dallas. Back then medication (interferons) were only available by lottery. The most important thing he gave me was hope and encouragement. Now it is 2017 and I am still enjoying life! I cannot do as many things as well as I used to, but who can at age 62? Thank you Dr. Wolfe for giving me the courage to keep living and enjoying life.

Rude

The way this doctor treated his staff was abhorrent. He was short tempered and appeared irrationally frustrated most of the visit.

Excellent care, treatment and personality

Dr. Wolfe and his entire staff are very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. After one or two visit's one can not help but consider Dr. Wolfe and his entire staff, not only trusted advisors on one's specific neurological condition, but good friends also. Dr. Wolfe is a true "geek" (And I mean that in the most flattering of ways), of neurology. It is evident in his whole demeanor that he truly loves what he is doing. His is in it for the love of helping others, not just the money. If a patient is doing well, he is all smiles and happy, if a patient is not doing, he takes it to heart. He is very empathetic. You can see the hurt in his face. He has helped me a lot. I am very fortunate to have him on my case.
