Specialties

Dr. John L Wolford Jr 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.

Worst "doctor" ever!

Wolford and his staff are criminally incompetent. He ignores patients, doesn't listen to descriptions of symptoms, doesn't want to read previous test results, and is an all around jerk. His staff also misreads basic tests, which in my case led me to be referred to a surgeon I didn't need to see!

Dr. Wolford's assistant makes getting an appointment other than what is on schedule for you nearly IMPOSSIBLE...eventhough I made it clear that I was sick and needed to see the doctor.

I've had six GI doctors in my lifetime and none of them were as good as Dr. Wolford. He's very thorough in his diagnostic workup and he explains everything well. I highly recommend him.
