"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."
