Patient reviews for Dr. Susan Wolf
Dr. Wolf was so pleasant and made me feel at ease immediately!
Waiting 45 minutes is too long.
Horribly run office and such little attention to detail or “bedside manner”
Dr. Wolf was calm and professional and very quick to the appointment. She wasn’t super outgoing or ask me about my life or chat/ make small talk but she was polite and attentive. The med assistants were all really sweet and friendly so overall the experience was positive.
Quick and easy. She seems very knowledgeable.
Very accommodating and very professional
Straight to business. Very professional.
Dr. Wolf is knowledgeable & informative but cold.
Professional, attentive to my need. Referred me to a medical assistant who explained the recommended procedure.
Dr Wolf is amazing doctor, highly professional and incredibly efficient! She is one of the very best!
Great service love not having to wait to see the doctor
Excellent professional visit.
Dr. Susan Wolf has been and still is a GREAT doctor!
Always pleasant and professional
Dr. Wolf is always pleasant and professional. I've been seeing her for several years and I trust her.
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.
Shes awesome! Very quick n nice too! ??
She is very professional and efficient.
Reassuring and thorough
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.
Efficient and comfortable. Meets or exceeds expectations.
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.
Excellent visit. Listened and took care of my concerns.
Susan's diagnosis was quick and superficial, and I'm unlikely to consult her in the future.
The staff and Dr. Wolf were so helpful and accommodating!
Very efficient and professional. Made me feel very comfortable
I thought it was thorough and she listened well
Dr. Wolf is fabulous! Have been seeing her for over 2+ year and am extremely pleased with her conservative approach and personable bedside manner.
I would highly recommend Dr Susan for skin related consultations. She was great in providing answers to all my question during consultation was extremely professional in her approach. The wait time was so less and visit was super quick!!
Always friendly, timely and professional.
On time, to the point and professional. Will come back.
She is awesome. Always professional and caring. Great experience every time.
Great service from beginning to end. Accommodating with my questions. I left hopeful and excited.
Great service and very pleasant
I really like her. Good knowledge and good follow up
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.
Terrific. Knows what to do and gets to the point quickly and professionally. Always errs on the side of caution which for any patient is a good thing!
Very knowledgeable, explains findings & treatment very well, is efficient in her style.
She made me feel comfortable and suggested some positive alternatives
Seems as though she knows what she is doing. However, there wasn't much conversation - especially since since was my first visit.
This is a well-run office. Everybody is attentive and I have never had to wait very long when I have an appointment.
Like her a lot. Professional and helpful.
Quick and efficient. She is very thorough.
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.
Dr. Wolf was efficient and helpful. I came in for a small procedure and was out within 30 minutes. Her assistant was also pleasant and professional. Great office.
Very FINE doctor
