"Dr. Wolff runs a great practice focused on patient support and well being. He has personally reached out to me to hear my feedback and it is clear that he truly cares about his patients’ progress and health."



"I came to SW Spine and Sports after going to another pain center in the Valley that operated like a factory... getting people in and out as quick as possible and pushing them into as many procedures as they can. What a night and day difference between that place and SW Spine and Sport. I have seen Dr. Wolff and Dr. Komar and Ashley the nurse. They are all so incredibly nice, patient, caring and knowledgable. They really take the time to listen to you and to work with you on a treatment plan. I have never felt pushed into any type of procedure that I was not comfortable with. I have had numerous spinal injections from them at the Gateway Surgery Center (also a great place!) and they have done a great job. I have had much relief under their care!"



"I am a PGA professional and personal trainer. I have had back pain for 40 plus years and have tried all modalities of pain relief from yoga, Chi Kung, and acupuncture to chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, massage, spinal injections, stem cells and bought every contraption invented to supposedly help alleviate back pain.  I was almost ready to resign myself to a life of unrelenting pain and disability until I found Southwest Spine and Sports and Dr. Wolff.  It has been such a relief to finally find a doctor and entire staff who understands chronic pain and has the cutting edge skills to treat it. They really do care about their patients. People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care."



"Dr. Wolff is one of the most capable Doctors I have every experienced.  I appreciate how much he listens and truly investigates your issues to get to the root cause of the problems.  He shows and explains the results of all tests, including radiological.  Furthermore he described issues and solutions in terms the lay person can understand.  Dr. Wolff personally coordinated a treatment plan with my Orthopedic Dr. which saved me from more invasive surgical treatment.  He is an above and beyond professional.  If you have pain; Dr. Wolff is your answer.  BTW, he is busy so sometimes he does runs a bit late-he is worth waiting for!  If you have pain-he is your guy.  Just the best!"



"I have had only positive experiences with Southwest Spine and Sports.  I have seen Dr. Wolff, and PA’s and I have found them to be extremely thorough and knowledgeable.  Dr. Wolff was the only Dr. to diagnose me with bursitis.  No other professional ever mentioned that to me.  I am extremely grateful to Dr. Wolff and his staff for extraordinary care."
