I have had Dr. Wolfe for many years, having to use a CPAP. She is very concerned about the needs and care of her patient. Spends more time with me than any other doctor that I have dealt with in the 20 years I have been associated with Northwestern. Besides her, nurse, Carolyn, is also outstanding.

She’s an excellent and caring doctor. Wish her office could improve upon speed in which staff responds to a refill request or follow up question. I waited 3 weeks once.

I would highly recommend Dr. Wolfe. In fact, I moved out of the city but I have stayed with her as my doctor even though I live 45 minutes away because she is so good at what she does. Dr. Wolfe takes her time with her patients, does not rush the appointment, and goes far above and beyond what is expected of her. She called another one of my doctors so they could get on the same page for my treatment and she called me back with the solution. She is smart and is not afraid of a challenge case or a complicated patient.

Disclosures

Lisa F. Wolfe, MD reported no external professional relationships for calendar year 2021.

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
