How was your experience with the doctor?The wait time was very very long which was frustrating, but that all went away as soon as I got in the room with Dr. Yan Wolfson. He was able to make me feel comfortable in a very uncomfortable situation in which I had to discus very uncomfortable topics. I am looking forward to my follow-up appointment and I could not recommend him enough.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Wolfson was amazing. I’ve seen 3 doctors before this with my problem who basically wrote it off. Dr. Wolfson took me seriously, sympathized, examined me and prescribed a new treatment. He said to me “I understand how frustrating this is but we will find a solution.” I felt so hopeful leaving his office. The wait was 45 mins but very worth it.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Wolfson was terrific. Very patient, not at all rushed. Very calming presence. Had a great bedside manner and explained all relevant info in a clear, intelligent (and even humorous) way. Really put me at ease--I'm quite a hypochondriac, so that's no easy feat. Great doctor!

How was your experience with the doctor?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:)

How was your experience with the doctor?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!

How was your experience with the doctor?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.

How was your experience with the doctor?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.
