"Dr. Wolfe specializes in heart valve surgeries at Northeast Georgia Medical Center's Ronnie Green Heart Center. He is well versed in minimally invasive (which is why I chose him to do my surgery). He is a straight shooter, tell it like it is kind of guy. I had a rare tumor on my aortic valve. Pre surgery they could not decide if it was a papillary fibroelastoma or Libman-Sacks endocarditis (both very rare). I was blessed to find Dr. Wolfe who, like me, wanted to spare my native valve if at all possible. I went into surgery with full knowledge of what his game plan was AND his backup plan if my valve could not be saved. Fortunately he was able to remove the growth/tumor via a mini-sternotomy and I kept my native fully functional aortic valve. Pathology showed that it was a Papillary Fibroelastoma. I highly recommend Dr. Wolfe for any heart valve surgery."

"Dr. Wolfe's reputation here in the Southeast is one of the best! My surgery wasn't an easy one due to my prior one in 1972. He went over the procedure completely and told me his game plan for me. His PA's are top notch as well. They were there to answer any questions that my wife or I had. Northeast Georgia Medical Center is the top heart hospital in the state of Georgia, and it shows!"

"Dr. Wolfe gave me an incredible level of confidence from beginning to end. My research also uncovered that in the world of valves, he is truly world class. My wife is a cardiac nurse and we interviewed three very highly recommended surgeons. While the other two are considered to be very accomplished surgeons, Dr. Wolfe is in a class all his own - above the rest. I strongly recommend Dr. James Alan Wolfe and I have a new lease on life because of his incredible talents. Thank you Dr. Wolfe."

"I am extremely happy with the result. His bedside manner is not the greatest. But who cares?"

"Dr. Wolfe is a consummate surgeon. He doesn't have a great personality, not a lot of bedside manner but he knows his stuff. I'm 100% pleased with his performance and the quality of his service."

"Dr. Wolfe was supposed to be the best at St. Joseph's Hospital in Atlanta. He made me feel that this would be an easy procedure and never let me have any doubt. After the surgery, he came to visit me two days in a row. He was warm and supportive. "
