She's OK, but they mistakenly charged me for a canceled appointment saying that I didn't cancel it which turned out that it's their fault. I did NOT receive any notification from them and they send the penalty charge to a collection agency. This is very bad because it hurts my credit. Even though at the end it got resolved, but the process is painful and inconvenient. I would suggest anyone who have canceled appointment on Zocdoc always double check with the clinic so it doesn't happen to you.

I came in to get treatment for my acne and to learn more about my skin since I had never seen a dermatologist. I didn't feel like my visit was very personalized. Dr. Wolf looked at my skin very quickly under a light, and then just started telling me about a bunch of prescription washes and creams I could use. I felt like the appointment was very rushed and I didn't feel like she was really trying to help me to the best of her ability, but rather was just trying to assign me some medication so she could end the appointment.

Very little wait time, and great front desk staff! Dr. Wolf is very efficient and direct, to the point of seeming cold, but she was never rude. I was able to get all my questions answered, with actionable solutions. I am planning to come back again. I'd suggest coming with a very specific list of things to address.

Dr. Wolf is the real deal. She was quick, thorough, and confident in her diagnosis of my problem. I came in for this one specific problem, which I got an injection for, but what impressed me was that she noticed some minor acne on my face, which I didn't really care for, but she gave me a prescription for that as well. And while I was getting the injections, she was gentle and asked if I was doing okay even though I'm a guy. I didn't have many questions, but she asked if I had any more. Highly recommend Dr. Wolf, she is attentive, not intimidating, and will listen to your concerns.

I really like Dr. Susan Wolf! I have been seeing her for over 10 years. She is so very pleasant and makes the patient feel easy as she has a very calming voice. She took time to examine my skin thoroughly and explain all anomalies that she noticed. As a senior citizen, I have several anomalies. Her office staff is also a great asset. I have only had one other physician's office that has been as nice as this one and I have visited doctors in several states. All of her staff seem to be very nice and helpful. Her office usually runs like Swiss clockwork. Only rarely have I had to wait for more then 10 minutes. Keeping to the clock like this is truly phenomenal! I also like Dr. Wolf's use of ZocDoc as it helps me schedule appointments without disturbing my office colleagues. I also get to see all of the choices for appointments instead of just hearing two or three from her nice staff.

Dr. Wolf's staff was cordial and accommodating, which is increasingly rare at doctors offices, i've found. She was pretty quick to diagnose a cyst, didn't push unnecessary procedures or products, and gave pragmatic advice on how to proceed.
