No one likes the wait, but it was a comfortable place and the wait is expected.

This is a very professional and well organized Care facility. I would drive 4 hours to get there if I had to to get the care and attention that they provide. I have been to several orthopedic surgeons in the pastand have not had a good feeling when leaving the office as far as diagnosis and alternative means other than cutting to repair.I would recommend Dr. Roland and his facility to anyone for their orthopedic needs.

While the visit with Dr. Wolin itself was fine, I waited over an hour to be seen. I found this to be completely unacceptable. I made an 8:00am appointment specifically so I would not be more than a half-hour late towork. Instead I was almost two hours late and had to take unplanned PTO. I understand that doctors do not know how much attention each individual patient might need, but a delay of over an hour seems to be more of an issue of scheduling too many patients than taking too much time with a patient.

Easily the worst doctor I have ever gone to. From the second he walked in the room it was obvious that he wanted to be done dealing with me as soon as possible. He never introduced himself formally, never explained whathe was doing, and never showed any interest in my injury beyond the most superficial questions. The only information I got from him was what I directly asked him to provide, and even then he told me literally nothing I was not aware of before going into his office. Additionally, I told him I was dealing largely with my right arm but that there was also pain in the left arm, but he focused solely on my right. At the end of the visit, he abruptly walked out the room without saying anything and left me sitting there with no idea what was going on. I wandered out of the room and had to ask three or four nurses what was going on before someone was able to figure out what I was supposed to be doing. He ended up writing me a script for physical therapy, but a nurse ended up changing it because I should have been prescribed occupational therapy instead. Long story short, Dr. Wolin is a waste of time and money. From the collection of signed memorabilia (mostly college athletes) surrounding his office, I am under the impression that he cares about "important" athletes far more than he did me.

I had to wait over half hour/ but the front desk tried to be sensitive to my time constraints. I was disappointed tag their system was not fully merged with Zoc Doc- had to fill out forms in office. Dr Wwas professional, kind, seemed thorough and seemed efficient. Pleasant, helpful team
