Very nice. Very smart. We will see what the tests reveal, but he seemed to know exactly what was going on and even drew me a picture with pen and paper. Thanks for the peace of mind, Yan.

Was on time for appointment (even had forms filled out in advance) and was asked to wait in waiting. After 45 minutes of waiting was told still 4 people ahead of me. Couldn't stick around any longer.

Absolutely agree with the best what was said by other patients about this GREAT DOCTOR ! His professionalism and human qualittes ("bedside manners"!) have been in striking contrast with my previous disgusting experience with some other urologists whose main goal was only to pull out all possible money from Medicare and Medicaid!

Dr. Wolfson was more attentive than any other urologist that I have encountered so far. Just from the perspective of someone solving a problem (chronic condition), I felt I received the necessary attention and detail needed to diagnose me. He was thorough and logical. He also had background information about any issues I raised. Overall, great experience and I would recommend him to anyone:)

This was my second visit to Dr. Wolfson. He is very laid back and calm and does his job very well. He is very personable and easy to talk to. I like the fact that doctors now use the computer to store information so that you do not have refill forms etc. And prescriptions are sent directly to your pharmacy, which means you can pick up your medication within an hour of your visit. I would definitely recommend Dr. Wolfson and NY Presbyterian Hospital.

Dr. Wolfson answered my many questions thoughtfully and in no way condescendingly. He listened. His curiosity about my symptoms felt genuine. He cares about being a good physician. However, his office is run very inefficiently. I've seen him twice and both times I've had to wait for about an hour. I don't understand why that has to happen. It is worth the wait, but it's annoying.

Wait Time

Complete lack of communication after I went in for a urinary test. Nobody ever relayed any results back to me, and when I finally called and asked for them, they refused to tell me anything unless I came in for the same test again. Additionally, I had to wait about an hour for my first appointment. Absolutely would not recommend again - staff was uncoordinated and doctor did not seem to care much.

My visit to Dr. Wolfson's office was fast and to the point. Within 1/2 hour of the appointed time, I was in the examination room with Dr. Wolfson. He is pleasant, easy to talk to and to the point. This was my first visit with Dr. Wolfson but it will not be my last. I will definitely maintain a relationship with this doctor. The office is efficient and as hospital offices go, clean and reasonably pleasant, with the constant TV that doctors' offices seem to think is necessary to amuse[?] and distract patients.

First time visit and this review is based on my initial consultation only. Dr. Wolfson has a wonderful bedside manner when speaking to you. He explains things in a way that is easy to understand and presented me with different options and possibilities for treatment and was sincerely interested in whether I had a preference, rather than simply prescribing one mode of treatment without informing me of other options. I was called out of the waiting room about 40 mins after my scheduled appointment time which was at 9:15am. I'd read online that a wait time was to be expected and so I planned ahead and wasn't surprised. I would not be happy about the wait if Dr. Wolfson wasn't such a pleasure to work with, but given his overall demeanor, knowledge and interaction style, I don't mind a bit. Highly recommended, just make sure your schedule is flexible.
