His office is decorated by his wife, Karen, who is an interior designer. Her care and love went into making the office “patient friendly”. “In these ‘managed care’ times when patients don’t necessarily have a choice of who or where they go for their medical care, it is our goal to let the patient know that we really care,” states Dr. Wolf.

Having been in this location for the past 25 years, Dr. Wolf is a proud father of four daughters ranging in age from 21-40 years old, and grandfather of 4 children.

Dr Baharloo’s excellent surgical skills are only surpassed by her compassion and love of taking care of patients.  This shines through in her kind personality and her infectious positive outlook and can-do attitude.  As patients get to know her, they quickly come to fall for her charms, and are always impressed by her vast knowledge regarding their foot and ankle conditions.  Her cultural sensitivity and empathetic nature stem from her early upbringing in
Shiraz, Iran, where kind hospitality is a way of life.  Her Persian background also accounts for her fluency in Farsi.
