"Dr. Wolff is a life saver. After months of struggling with a shoulder and neck pain, he took control of my diagnosis and treatment plan. Absolutely exceptional doctor and how often do you heart that?"



"Dr. Wolff changed my life twice! The first time he treated me for severe lower lumbar pain that had plagued me for over 20 years. After his prescribed treatments I was pain free for 2 years. Then after I was rear-ended in an car accident,  I had lower back, hip and SI joint pain that was once again quite debilitating. After many months of physical therapy trying to resolve the issues,  Dr. Wolff’s pain management treatments once again got me back on my feet.  Its been nearly 3 years and I’m still feeling great!"



"I was referred to Dr. Wolff by another outstanding Doctor. Doctor Lakin, the best Internist in the Valley. I was impressed by a great caring staff that put me at ease during a difficult time. I have a lot of treatment to go, but thus far, Dr. Wolff was by far the best back/spine doctor I have been to. You would not be disappointed going here for treatment."



"yesterday I came for my second visit and I was put at ease from the moment I came in. Doctor Wolff was referred to me by another top notch doctor. I was not disappointed. His expertise and confidence shows. Not that he needs a review to confirm this, but just wanted to give credit where it is due. I appreciate the work he has done towards my back recovery."



"Nurse Practitioner Sheila Janisch is an integral and incredible part of SWSS. Sheila truly cares about her patients and goes above and beyond to provide outstanding care. Sheila has personally helped me to be able to live a better life with her help. I can't recommend her enough! Sheila doesn't treat her patients as just an injury or an ailment but she gets to know her patients and really listens to them. I give both Sheila and Dr. Wolff my highest recommendation! 10 out of 10!!!"
