Dr Wolfe & her MA are fantastic. Yoir front desk staff is nice, but the young woman who helped me took forever to take care of things. she could have easily given me the forms I needed to fill out while she looked things up online instead of making me stand there & watch. Not the most efficient.

[...] I went in ONLY because of a lesion on my nose. The visit was turned into a referral session about things I was not complaining about and I was referred to specialists for things I was not complaining about. I was VERY DISAPPOINTED, when I read the visit summary, to see that the concern I had come in to be consulted on was listed last. I was told I might have skin cancer. There was no discussion whatsoever about how to financially get it taken care of. I am forced to buy health insurance, even though it is a struggle just to pay for the monthly premium. I cannot afford the cost of seeing a specialist, let alone paying for a biopsy. A day of two after my visit with Dr. Wolfe I RECEIVED a call from her office asking me to confirm that I would make the appointment scheduled three weeks out--which was odd in itself. I told the caller I am worried because I can't afford the cost of the necessary doctor visits just to find out IF I have cancer, let alone the cost of treatment. I was told to discuss it when I come in for the appointment three weeks hence. I didn't know what to say! I called back and left a message that I don't feel cared for--I had just been told I might have cancer and then told to wait three weeks to discuss what to do about it?! I received another call from Dr.Wolfe's office, and by this time I was very upset. No. I was (and still am) VERY SCARED!!! I don't believe it is unusual for people to become emotional and angry when they are scared. The man who called me back was not sympathetic AT ALL. In fact, he tried to make me feel guilty that he CHOSE to work late so that he could call me back. I've just been told I might have cancer, I have no way to pay for the medical expenses JUST TO FIND OUT, and I should not be upset?! No. I do not feel cared for!
