"I’ve been a patient for many years. There has been some staff turnover but the continuity of care is always present. Dr K and Sheila are both fantastic! They really listen and I feel like they take ALL things into consideration when helping me to navigate daily pain."
"I have been seeing predominantly Dr Wolff and Shelia Janisch for several years. Most recently with debilitating SI joint pain after two fusion revisions. I’m forever grateful to Southwest Spine team for helping me to heal. I thought the relentless shooting pain through my foot would never tone down to a level 5 pain. I’m grateful we persisted through several medications and nerve blocks to manage my pain."
"Everything was great !!Dr. Wolf is so thorough so knowledgeable in what he does, kind,considerate, understanding, helpful I’ve been going to him for years and I really appreciate him and Sheila Janisch FNP-C!!Thank you to all your Staff!Plus the group of people that work at theRFO Office, They are the nicest most understanding, knowledgeable and helpful employees there is!!"
"I went to SWSP again today for a follow-up re: an epidural I had a couple weeks ago. I met with Sheila Janisch for my discussions. She, like Dr Michael Wolff, is amazing! She takes the time to listen...to suggest the best procedures to follow. I just felt so comfortable with the appointment today. I will be receiving an additional epidural for the sciatica pain and will be taking an MRI for my rotator cuff problem. I swear, this facility, these physicians and staff, are the best in Scottsdale!"
"Been treated at SW since 2007. Been through Dr. Komar, Sherman and now Wolff. Treatment was often and varied as they balanced my care and relieved me, all be it temporarily of my discomfort and most of my pain. New this process was not a healing measure when I started as it was not my first rodeo. Finally approximately a month ago I went in and spoke with Sheila Janisch who I had seen a few times prior and really appreciated her approach. I pleaded with her to help me do something to get me help at the next level. She reviewed MRI's ETC and said she believed there was a good reason to elevate my care to a neurosurgical consult. She spoke candidly with Dr. Wolff and off I went to Barrow's. A consult there discovered some larger underlying issue however I will have a L5 S1 fusion in August and I am elated. Go figure. Sheila! You are my hero. Thanks to you and Dr. Wolff."
