Dr. Steven B. Wolf has been my doctor since I was a child. He is a wonderful doctor.

January 4, 2020 11:58 AM

I am seeing Dr. Wolf to receive botox for migraines. The first time I met with him, we talked about options for migraine treatment and decided botox was the best treatment. At the time, we went over my history with migraines and prescription medications for migraines. Since then, I have seen him twice for botox treatment. Both times were very positive experiences. He has taken appropriate time with me and has been receptive to hearing my concerns.

December 30, 2019 5:53 PM

very ahort visit and lady at front desk was rude

December 2, 2019 1:26 PM

Long lines in the waiting area. Was told they asked people with afternoon appts to come in early before noon.

He is gentle in inserting the needles for the Botox migraine injections. His staff is friendly and helpful. Making and rescheduling appointments is NEVER a hassle.
