William DeWolf, MD

Internal medicine doctor

Bio:   Dr. William (Bill) DeWolf's love of science and a desire to be in a profession that provided service to the community lead him to a career in medicine.

For thirty years, Dr. DeWolf has felt grateful that he is able to be a part of the healthcare of so many patients. Dr. DeWolf sees the role of the physician as a partner with patients to help them make the best health choices based on the latest medical information available. He enjoys helping patients sort through all the information that is now available to be sure that they are making decisions based on good information and not the latest fad.

Outside of medicine, he loves to back pack, travel, read and continuously improve his photographs. And although science and medicine won out for his career, Dr. DeWolf has never lost interest in history and public affairs.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

He is the most sanitary doctor I have encountered so far. He's also a very good listener and explainer to my concerns and issues. It is good to have an experienced doctor among the younger group of doctors.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

First visit to Dr DeWolf. He was a excellent in all respects. Had been going to Dr Yun but she left. She was also excellent in all respects. The quality of the doctors is by far the most important criteria. I have high confidence in Dr DeWolf.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr. Dewolf is an amazing resource and perhaps the best primary care physician I've ever had. He is knowledgeable, competent and shares a uniquely wise perspective, in my opinion.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

I was really impressed with Dr. Dewolf. He had clearly gone through my prior chart, however, he quite properly took a fresh history himself, addressed the major issues and discussed a clear plan. He also has a very good manner of asking questions and allowing the patient to give input without appearing rushed.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr. Dewolf reviewed the results of my 8 hour E R visit in Huntington Beach and was familiar with the reason for my visit. He listened and made an excellent recommendation. His explanation made me feel very comfortable and it improved my condition quickly. The next day I was feeling my usual self.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Dr. DeWolf is my new primary care doctor. I had just changed from Hill Health group, and I like Stanford Health much better. Should have made the change a few years ago. The only concern is that Stanford Health does not have hospitals in the area. Dr DeWolf is thoughtful, caring and knowledgeable. Most importantly, he is proactive in helping me with my diabetes. I am so glad that he is my new doctor.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

I like my Doctor, however this time I felt that he was possible preoccupied. I recently had knee surgery and felt perhaps that he didn't want to get involved.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Tell DeWolf he owes me a large stuffed/deep dish Zachary's World Famous Chicago Spinach and Mushroom Pizza (on whole wheat crust) for this. :oD

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

I have a lot of confidence in my provider. His experience is so welcomed.
