Disappointed and shocked

All I can say is WOW! We have a daughter college back to college in 2 weeks and every time she eats she throws up. He could not do an endioscopy in the time we needed so said we could use a colleague. We did so and when tried to schedule f/u appt with him he did not have anything available until Sept 21 so we schedule with another doctor who had availability the day my daughter goes back to college. I called to advise him the medicine he prescribed my daughter is not working and wanted to get test results. He was angry because in his own words “ we are all over the place and now with 3 doctors involved will have 3 different opinions”. I said well ur next appt isn’t until sept 21 and he said then she will have to wait. I said but she can’t wait that long she continues to throw up after each time she eats. He was rude and more concerned we made an appt with a colleague in his own practice vs my daughter throwing up. Not to mention how could there be 3 separate opinions? Aren’t they doctors who all went to medical school and know how to read results or biopsies? Do NOT recommend at all!

Great doctor

In person, he is terrific. He takes the time to listen and to explain. The only negative is that he doesn't return phone messages and his office is terrible at refilling prescriptions when contacted by pharmacies. Otherwise, they are all extremely pleasant.

Dr. Wolfson- Not recommended

I would not recommend this physician to anyone, because of his lack of interest in the patient's ideas and lack of knowledge in areas relating to gastroenterology (specifically relating to food allergies). His lack of respect for other physician's opinions and quickness to prescribe unnecessary medication has solidified my decision not to return to this doctor.
