Love Dr. Wolfson. He is no nonsense, very knowledgable and caring to both the adult and child. Whenever I bring our boys to BW and we don't see our regular physician, Dr. Kovel, I always hope to see Dr. Wolfson. Wonderful!!!!
We LOVE dr. David Wolfson!!!
Our Children said that Dr. Wolfson made them feel good about themselves, and that he said that they were very healthy. It was s very positive experience, and we trust Dr.Wolfson , he is excellent.
Dr was very understanding about my child's specific circumstances and how to best balance my child's medication with his specific needs
every experience was great they were amazing and still are with my daughter
Dr. Wolfson has always been kind and thorough with his care for our sons. He heard me out in the hallway on this visit with a concern I had about my son for about 10 minutes or more. He listened and made me feel like he was eager to address the concerns and take extra time with us to care for Sam in a way that made me feel so confident as a mom. He is a real gem of a doctor, he is why we are at this practice.
we love this practice!
Dr Wolfson was very matter of fact. We enjoy more of a dialogue with our provider and will be trying other physicians within the practice. He failed to examine our childs chart (it was our first visit) and almost missed a necessary blood test had we not spoken up about it.
The nurse assisting us was very sweet and even took an extra head measurement because my mom wants to make a hat for the baby. Dr. Wolfson is always so respectful and helpful and strikes just the right balance of being conservative but laid-back when it comes to our children (when to move them out of our room, feed them solids, etc.). We trust him very much.
I really trust and respect Dr. Wolfson. He is very patient and courteous and takes great care of my children.
The provider gave us more time than I expected because my daughter's situation was slightly more serious than I'd realized. They were calm but thorough and caring.
he is very gentle, impressive providerliked him a lot in our very first visit
Dr. Wolfson is always very reassuring about my concerns regarding my baby. I trust him completely!
we love Dr Wolfson! He treats us like intelligent adults, listens, and takes us seriously while showing concern and compassion for both the parents and our children.
Dr. Wolfson is an amazing doctor. He is patient, answers all questions, and has a very calming demeanor.
We have always been extremely happy with Dr. Wolfson.
this doctor appears to really enjoy what he does for a living, and this shows through his work and bedside manner.
very concerned and answered all questions clearly. Enjoyed the experience with Dr. Wolfson.
Dr. Wolfson is an excellent physician and we drive 30 miles out of our way to go see him. He has taken great care of our daughter since the day she was born.
Always feel like we are treated with respect by Dr. Wolfson. Was relieved that he was available on the day my child became ill.
I appreciate how gentle everyone was with my 3 day old baby.
we appreciate Dr Wolfson so very much!
This provider was very understanding with our circumstances even though my child did not have an infection. I really like this practice and all the doctors there and will continue to go to them with my second child
The nurse I spoke to when I called was able to get my child an appointment within an hour of when I called. The doctor entered the exam room relatively promptly, was thorough and kind, assisted us with facilitating our tests at the hospital by calling ahead. It was overall an excellent experience in a stressful situation. I was very grateful the practice could get us in so quickly and that the doctor treated us so well and we were able to get the needed care.
I always recommend CCP bass Wolfson to new parents!!!
We have been out west for five years. Previously, Dr. Wolfson was my children's pediatrician. His manner is so kind and he is so thorough and knowledgeable. Cannot recommend him more highly.
this was my first visit with my newborn who was two weeks early. I was very impressed n pleased w Dr Wolfson and his staff.
David Wolfson is outstanding. A model pediatrician.
Our child has seen Dr. D. Wolfson for over 17 yrs. We are blessed with an excellent physician. WE feel he is one of the ,if not the best pediatrician in Pgh. Both of our children see him. One is a teen now and our other child has Down Syndrome. He is wonderful with special needs children as well. He is worth the drive from Upper Saint Clair to Squirrel Hill. He is very intelligent, knowledgeable, respectful, kind and compassionate. 5 stars+for David Wolfson!
I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Wolfson. He is the best!
I have been going to this practice for 35 years. All I can say is Thank You for keeping all my children and grandchildren healthy physically and mentally....
Dr Wolfson was fantastic and went above and beyond!
We love Wolfson!
The nurse was really wonderful and handled the vaccination well (and the aftermath!) Dr. Wolfson is fantastic and not only answered our questions but also brought up some really insightful/important topics that were important for us to consider.
I have 1000% trust in Dr. Wolfson's perspective and advice. We've been seeing him since my son was born and appreciate his depth of knowledge of and on-going engagement with my son. He even knows his ultimate frisbee terminology!
Excellence in care and conduct.
Dr David Wolfson is top quality pediatrician. Our son has been seeing him for 17yrs. Very professional,knowledgable, compassionate and respectable towards patient and parents. Highly recommended!
Since this was a well check, I felt that we needed more time. The doctor seemed to want to wrap it up but I still had questions. I don't often come to the doctor unless my child is very ill so I use the well check to ask questions that while not critical, are still important - questions that I've been wanting to ask for a while but I wait until the well check. So I would have preferred more time. Otherwise, I will start scheduling additional office visits to ask these questions, which I don't want to do.
Dr. Wolfson has been an excellent care provider. He is attentive, thorough and reassuring.
i have 4 kids so i have been going there for 29 yrs. i love dr wolfson and for the most part all of the providers..love the new physicians assistant as well
My son refused to stand on the scale and the nurse obliged and just weighed myself with my son and then subtracted mine in order to minimize the drama that it was going to create. Also, Dr. Wolfson is always very prompt and shows a great deal of concern for my son and we always do follow-ups from the previous check-up which shows me that he actually cares and remembers what we discussed.
excellent care all around.
Dr. Wolfson was compassionate and shared information to help educate us about our baby. It was clear that he has years of experience with newborns. I would be extremely happy to see him again!
Great provider! Few words and lots of information!
Always very pleased with the care my daughter receives from this practice which is why I never transferred her to a practice closer to our home.
The doctor was running behind that day but during our visit, he was very engaged in the reason for our appointment (med check) and helped us to work through some decisions. Dr. Wolfson has been a great resource for us.
Dr Wolfson is great with our kids!
Dr. Wolfson is one of the best among a team of already exceptional physicians. We appreciate him, the other physicians, and nursing staff at CCP.
very good experience.
He called the next day to check in which was very impressive
Dr. Wolfson was excellent in helping take care of my daughters pain. He explained things very clearly and the medication he recommended took care of the problem.
Dr. Wolfsen has always been good with all of my children.
Very thorough respectful caring and great doctor! (David Wolfson.) Our son has been his patient for almost 17 years.
My husband brought my child to this visit, so I was not a direct observer, but he did take pictures. My 4yo son was nervous about this appointment because he'd had a very sick belly for a week, so we told him he could bring his own toy doctor's kit from home and before the Dr gave him a checkup, he would be able to give the Dr a checkup. Thank goodness that Dr Wolfson played along. This completely calmed my child down and allowed Dr Wolfson to palpitate my son's stomach, which for a week he wouldn't let any of us even touch. Dr. Wolfson let my son take his temperature with his toy thermometer, he let him put a plastic "bandage" on his arm, and the Dr showed my son the proper way to use his toy stethoscope. The pictures are priceless. I do not EVER take these surveys after appointments, but I had to do this one - I hope he gets to see this. Thank you Dr Wolfson for making my son's day.
I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Wolfson. We just love him! I am so happy and thankful we were referred to him by multiple people.
Dr. Wolfson is wonderful. He is thoughtful, caring, and so smart. He makes my son and I feel so "known" and understood. Even though I have moved out of Squirrel Hill, I will still travel the 30 minute commute to see him, despite having excellent pediatricians closer to my new home.
