Dr. W was so funny and friendly
I like his laid back style, breaks down everything in layman's terms, and really knows his profession inside and out
Dr. Woelffer is very engaging and showed concern for my issues with my ankle. He listens, which has not been my experience with all doctors.
Dr Woelfler and his team went far and above the call of duty the other day. While I am a current patient, I did not have an appointment and decided to pop in as I was next door and see when the Dr. might have time to work me in. And just like that, they found the time and I was seen to. All with the same sunny disposition that is the hallmark of Dr. Woelfler’s office.
Dr. Woelffer was extremely friendly, courteous, and informative. He did an excellent job easing me through the process of having my ingrown toenails removed.
Dr. Woelffer is wonderful & caring doc, as is the whole staff. I have told my friends & family to come to this office! They all have become patients ~
Love my doc!
Dr. Woelffer was great. He is highly recommended by friends, colleagues & my husband who is a physician & refers his patients to Dr. Woelffer. Paige was excellent with her communication & the treatment that she provided me. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field of work.
Everyone was very courteous and helpful. They made my Mom, who is 91 years old, feel especially welcomed.
Dr. Woelffer provided clear and concise explanations concerning my problem and followed up with a management plan that both addressed my current problem and how to prevent future worsening. He comes across as knowledgeable and caring, if a bit quirky, which kept things light without losing the professionalism you expect in a doctors office.
Dr. [Woelffer], Raleigh, very thorough, professional, and good. Also, his nurse, “Melissa” [...] was extremely professional and pleasant.
Good doctor, good service
[...] The doctor was engaging and entertaining and of course knowledgeable.
