I've been a patient of this great surgeon for years. The care I get is top notch, and he is the best joint surgeon in town. I agree with the other reviews about the long wait times, it sucks. I've sometimes waited up to 4 hours to see him and other times 10 minutes. I was there a few weeks ago when the lineup was out side the clinic and that was a bad day, but it's rare. The only thing I don't like about his practice is that some patients just walk in and get scripts for pain medications and walk out. They seem to get preferential treatment because they are loud and complain. I wish he would just get rid of these patients from his practice or see them elsewhere, they are really discouraging for the others. But overall I love him and I think he's great.

Very smart and overall helpful. seen him only 3 times for my knee pain and I still have pain, the injections are not working. I will stick with him because people say he is the best, but I hate waiting so long in clinic. His staff is good.

Wait time at the clinic is not great, but it's a Canadian hospital limitation, not his., the service is the best and he has the best outcomes of any joint replacement surgeon in the region. Love the man for his great attitude and personality

Ruined my knee after 2 infections and 1 broken bone. I decided to go to a better surgeon in Hamilton that actually fixed my knee and took better care of me. The 3 hour waits in the clinic and the poor care are unacceptable. Even the hospital came to complain about the patents lined up outside blocking fire routes. Worst experience.

I recently injured my knee and came to see dr Woolfrey. Had great expectations as his reputation as being the best knee surgeon in Brantford. I was disappointed with the consult. Starting with a 3 hour wait to see his assistant and then him. Follows by treatment options I already did and offered me surgery for 1 year from the visit. Does he expect me to suffer for 1 year ? He then offered me injections until the surgery, which I already had and they don't work for me. He gave me a narcotic script and said that he will manage my pain until the surgery. I was hopin for something else, not drugs and injections, but a solution that will not cause me dependence.

Excellent surgeon, nice staff, but waiting for 3-4 hours in the clinic is ridiculous. The hospital should really jump in and help manage this situation, I'm sure there is a better way to run a clinic.

Same as last review. Excellent skills and nicest person, but when you wait 2.5 hours to be seen And you don't even get to see the doctor, that leaves a sour taste. I would recommend him to anyone, but expect long wait times.

highest regards for dr woolfrey but when I wait 2.5 hrs to see HIM I do not want to see his assistant, I had surgery and when I came for my 6 week check I saw his assistant and he told me at that time that things were good and that I really did not need to go to physio any longer...big mistake...although I did my exercises routinely I built up so much scar tissue that I can barely move my knee now...the frustrating thing is the assistant didn't even look at my knee to see the swelling...etc..just saw that I had good movement at the time and that was it...I was so disgusted that I am not going back for any more checkups...no use ....he has no idea what he is taking about and no sense wasting my time. I do have to do a rating on dr woolfrey and it is not going to be good...great doctor but he should be on top of what his assistant is doing and not doing so therefore need to go with a bad rating.

I saw Dr. Woolfrey in the spring of 2015. He is very friendly, knowledgeable and in spite of how busy he was, he was on time for his appointments. The only complaint is the wait time for surgery.
