Dr. Wolfe’s excellence as a highly-skilled hand surgeon are as superb as his ability to engage with patients and put them at ease. Sensitive to his patients, Dr. Wolfe takes the time necessary to be sure his patients are comfortable before and after surgery and as he carefully performs delicate surgery. I know from colleagues and my own recent surgery just how exceptional Dr. Wolfe is. I had peace of mind knowing that I was in the safe hands of Dr. Wolfe and his professional, caring staff Brenda Friedler in Stamford, CT

If you are reading this, then just like me- you’re looking for the best arm and hand surgeon you can find. I will tell you- you found him. I came to Dr. Wolfe- with a serious crushing arm and hand injury from being pulled into a machine. After 3 surgeries from local doctors, my arm and hand was still unusable and further worsened by 4 months of terrible post care. Local doctors had already concluded that my arm would be 50% at best, and probably live with pain for the rest of my life. I felt like I was on the verge of losing any use of my arm. Over the next 4 months and an additional 4 long surgeries with Dr. Wolfe, he systematically rebuilt my hand and arm. Today- I am 100% with no restrictions and no pain. Dr Wolfe did such an excellent job that you can hardly notice anything ever happened.
Dr. Wolfe is not only the foremost expert in the field- he is a kind and concerned Doctor that takes the time to listen to you. Dr. Wolfe makes sure that you understand the treatment plan every step of the way. The emotional and physical care he showed during such a trying time- gave me the opportunity to do my part and get back to living life again.
Forever grateful to Dr. Wolfe
