Patient Testimonials for Susan Wolf, MD*

Dr. Wolf is kind, caring, thorough, and skilled. I have seen her for skin cancers as well as routine skin checks, and for Sculptra injections. She and Dr. Morganroth – who did my laser skin resurfacing- are excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend them.*

– Florence M.


Dr. Wolf was cordial and professional. She was very efficient and effective with the visit and surprised me by addressing my concern and small procedure immediately rather than scheduling a follow-up appt. as many Dr’s do… In short she was great, a professional and a class act.*

– Gerald S.


I am fortunate to be a patient of Dr. Susan Wolf in San Mateo. Although I have only had two appointments with her thus far, I am very confident stating that she is the best dermatologist I have seen over the last 20 years. My complexion has benefited more from these two visits, then it did from seeing other doctors for many years.*

Her bedside manner is exceptional, and she really listened to my concerns, and responded in a very helpful and kind way. She went above and beyond in order to help me and my particular situation. The staff is very supportive and competent as well. I highly recommend Dr. Wolf.*

I have been going to Dr. Susan Wolf for several years now. She is one of the finest doctors
whom I have known. I have lived in my states/cities and have used dermatologists everywhere. I am a male and felt very comfortable in having her perform a 100% skin check. She has always been extremely punctual. I have never had to wait more than about ten minutes for her.*
