Just today I returned from the first follow up from Dr. Wolpa, 6 months after the laser treatment for the removal of the toenail fungus. I have been very unsatisfied and confident that he attempted to trick me. I have toe fungus since 2009 and I have visited several podiatrists both in Germany and in Greece, all of whom always took a sample of my toenails before and after the treatment and run lab tests to check (i) if there is indeed fungus and (2) what kind of fungus it is. Dr. Wolpa barely visually checked my toenails (both the first time and today after the treatment) and he intentionally avoided to give me a second laser treatment. For those of you who are unfamiliar with his procedure: He promises to give a second treatment for free (the price for the first treatment is $900!!) 6 months after the first treatment if the latter was less than 80% successful. Here is a quote from his website: Within 6 months of your initial treatment the doctor will evaluate the results from your initial treatment. If there is less than 80% improvement, we will do a second treatment on the involved toe(s) for free. Instead of doing the second round of treatment 6 months after the first treatment, he tried to persuade me to see me again in 2 months and although I told him that I am moving out of country he insisted on postponing the second round of treatment. Finally, his secretary told me that he will see me in a week again, although Dr. Wolpa 5 minutes ago told me that toenails grow slow and much time is needed to see improvement. Everybody knows that this is true so, if little improvement can be seen after 6 months, what is the point in seeing me in again 6 months and 1 week and not giving me the second treatment already today? I really hope that he will be cooperative next time and do the second treatment for free as he advertises that he does, otherwise I am ready to spread the bad reviews online. I will write back in a week.
