“It’s satisfying to incorporate useful
therapies to help people live healthier lives.”
Dr. Craig Wolfe diagnoses and treats a
wide range of diseases that affect the
lungs. These conditions include asthma,
chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,
cystic fibrosis, interstitial lung disease, lung
cancer, respiratory failure and tuberculosis.
For Dr. Wolfe, the practice of pulmonary
medicine allows the ideal balance
between “thinking and doing.”
“Determining causes and solutions in the
critical care environment is often similar
to successfully fitting together a puzzle,
with effective treatment serving as the
essential piece,” he said.
Dr. Wolfe embraces patient involvement
as part of the treatment process. “I strive
to keep people informed in a way they
can understand; I talk with them as a
peer,” he said.
Dr. Wolfe joined Marshfield Clinic Health
System in 1989, and was attracted to the organization by the availability of high-technology resources within a small-town atmosphere.
“Our intensive care survival statistics are among the best in the nation,” he said.
After earning his medical degree at Wright State University Medical School, Dayton, Ohio, Dr. Wolfe completed his internal medicine internship and residency at Indiana University Medical Center Indianapolis. He completed his fellowship in pulmonary medicine and critical care medicine at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City. He is board certified in internal medicine, critical care medicine and pulmonary disease.
Dr. Wolfe and his wife, Dr. Lori Remeika, have four children. He enjoys attending his
children’s hockey and soccer games, building furniture and home construction projects.
