Dr. Wolfson is very businesslike and seems to be a no-nonsense type person. If you look at his profile, you can see listed the many joint studies he's taken part in, so he knows what he's taking about. Within seconds of introduction we were talking about my problems and the possible reasons behind them. After a brief examination he quickly recommended what medical imaging exams I needed to further assess treatment. If you like your doctors quick and to-the-point Dr. Wolfson is a good match for you.
