Robert J. Wolf, MD was born in Detroit in 1962 and raised in the nearby suburb of Mount Clemens, MI. The bright and precocious only child of Dr. and Mrs. Ervin Wolf, he enjoyed a close-knit family. The son of Jewish immigrants from Hungary, and the only child of parents without siblings and, therefore, the only grandchild, he attended public schools and graduated from Mount Clemens High School in 1980, where he excelled academically, earned nine letters in four sports, and was named class Salutatorian. He studied piano for eight years and was actively involved with fundraisers, a member of the yearbook and newspaper staff, and was captain of the swim team for two years. He and his tennis doubles partner were named all-state in Michigan their senior year and  received a state Certificate of Recognition for their sports column. 

With 31 years of experience in Diagnostic Radiology, he is now semiretired, working part- time from home reading X-rays and MRI studies and currently resides in Coconut Creek,  Florida. He can be reached:
