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.
