I felt that Dr. Wold spent enough time with me to get a good history to get to know me as a patient. That was a pleasant surprise. I am hoping to get my life back.

September 16, 2016

She was in no hurry. Spent time needed.

August 06, 2016

Dr. Wold said she would check current literature about PVC impact on blood clots/stroke, which she did. In her letter to my PCP she cited what she found. I have a high level of confidence in Dr. Wold. She was genuinely interested in my situation.

July 06, 2016

good experience

June 22, 2016

Dr. Wold was excellent in discussing my issues, and her followup letter was the best I have ever received from a physician!

June 17, 2016

Everything great.

February 06, 2016

Most professional and helpful of any physicians I have seen.

January 15, 2016

It is always a pleasure to see Dr. Wold.

November 15, 2015

Dr Wold is tiny but great

August 31, 2015

Dr. Wold is an exceptionally fine neurologist!

June 26, 2015

a wonderful doctor!!

June 19, 2015

I was impressed by how courteous the staff and the doctor have always been. My doctor explains everything so I can understand and she makes sure I go home with a clear understanding of my direction for care. I also really like having a printed copy of things that occurred in the examining room and the availability of checking "My Case" afterward.

June 15, 2015

Dr Wold is fantastic. she has shown great concern for my health and care. She spent a good amount of time with me and took care to answer all of my questions.

May 27, 2015

Dr. Wold was outstanding in every aspect of care, concern, diagnoses and explanation of treatment.

May 20, 2015

Although Dr. Wold asked me if I had any questions, she had the "green sheets" in her hand on which I had written several questions, not all of which she answered. She seemed hurried (understandable), and maybe I didn't have her full attention. Because she seemed hurried, I didn't ask her all my questions, a couple of which were sensitive, and which I had written down. I wish she had read them carefully.

May 19, 2015

She is an amazing doctor. She spent extra time with me explaining my medical conditions from the past and helped me to understand why things have changed so much for me.

April 04, 2015

Amazing Doctor. She seemed to take the issues I've had seriously and is looking to solutions.

February 26, 2015

Considering I came from another provider who was unavailable trying to solve problems that are not easily diagnosed and/or solved. She could have explained more during the physical exam as she was explaining to the Resident.

December 11, 2014

The Doctor remembered my stroke from a couple of years ago, and that was helpful and also very comforting to me.

December 01, 2014

I feel like Dr Jana Wold has a genuine interest in my health issues and is working to help resolve those issues.

November 25, 2014

No bad experiences, always professional.

November 07, 2014

In looking up my type of vestibular migraines I discovered that every single thing the big clinics were trying Dr Wold had tried on me. The medication, the movements, everything was spot on. Dr. Wold may be little and young, but she knows her stuff. And she showed me her children's pictures.....what else could I want.....a friendly competent doctor and baby pictures.

October 20, 2014

I didn't feel like I was being listen to. Decisions about treatment was told to me. I felt my feed back to the treatment was dismissed. I know my body and I knew the treatment was an excuse because the doctor didn't know what was causing the headaches. I was told to cut down/or go off caffeine and see you in two months. I didn't have headaches 6 months ago when I was doing the same amount of caffeine. In other words my diet had not changed. I wish doctors would say I really don't know. I now get to wait 2 months with a constant headache.

August 24, 2014

Impressed by Dr. Wold's concern for necessity of discontinuing warfarin, and by the second-year medical student. Both were warm and friendly. I also like that they were female and listen so well.

August 22, 2014

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Wold and the other health care professionals.

August 03, 2014

Such a good experience as I said before we have answers to questions that have been a mystery .

June 07, 2014

A very pleasant experience, and the info was immediately sent to my docters who work with me.

September 30, 2013

This visit marked the first time I had met with Dr. Wold. I was most impressed. She was professional yet personable and compassionate. She listened effectively and responded accordingly. I found Dr. Wold to be most intelligent and capable. It seemed as if we were working as a team to resolve and mediate my daughter's health concerns. I look forward to working with Dr. Wold in the future as she continues to make inroads toward my daughter's wellness. I really appreciate Dr. Wold's interest in the whole patient and not just isolated components, more of a holistic approach.

August 22, 2013

Dr Wold is incredibly caring and compassionate re her care towards my mother who had a stroke a few months ago. She took time with us and is willing to answer many questions asked. I would have have no reservation in referring friends and family to her care

August 19, 2013

Dr. Wold is outstanding in providing explanations that I can understand. She's an outstanding doctor.

August 06, 2013

I have a lot of confidence in my doctor and the pa's.

July 13, 2013

I am grateful that Doc Wold requested the test that found my pituitary tumor. I had already met with the surgeon and then her again which seemed redundant and I spent 40.00 co-pay for her to tell me I didn't need to see her anymore unless that I had headaches. She just said to work with doc Couldwell. So I felt that the appointment wasn't neccesary and she didn't know that I had already seen the surgeon. :C

May 15, 2013

wish there was something else to help this problem besides pills

May 10, 2013

The whole U of U medical system is just great. I would recommend it to everyone.

April 17, 2013

I think Dr. Wold is fabulous. She always takes the time to explain things and ask questions,even when she is very busy. I always feel like she cares about me as a patient. I have the utmost confidence in her knowledge of her field. I couldn't ask for better care.

April 15, 2013

Great Doctor, always concerned

March 18, 2013

Dr. Wold is exceptional.

March 08, 2013

Dr. Wold was very impressive not only in her communication but availability in answering questions, offering suggestions, etc. From my experience with neurology generally, Dr. Wold is a "superstar", her communication, availability, communicated concern, sharing suggestions was well beyond expectations!

December 14, 2012


November 30, 2012

Dr. Wold has been awesome. She spends as much time as needed to answer any questions i have making me feel pretty comfortable that side affects i am having from my condition and medications are normal

September 10, 2012

My only frustration was this was a follow up to a previous appointment because the Dr. didn't have all the scans to look at then (although I had done what I needed to get them to her before the initial appointment and was told they had everything for that appointment). So I was expecting she would have looked at them before this follow up. She got them shortly after my appointment and looked at them and based on that is having me do something that she wasn't planning after the appointment. So, it would have been nice to have the accurate information for the appointment and next steps discussion with the doctor at the appointment.

September 03, 2012

The very best.

June 12, 2012

Jana Wold is exceptional.

May 01, 2012

Dr Wold was excellent

February 16, 2012

I can't overstate what a wonderful doctor that Dr. Wold is. She was patient with my questions, answered them in a way I could understand, and was genuinely concerned for my situation. I just felt so good when I left because of her care.
