about the TMJ & Sleep Therapy Centre of Cleveland
Dr. Wolf has provided me with amazing care. My symptoms have nearly completely resolved and she is extremely comprehensive in her treatment. I would highly recommend her to anyone having jaw or sleep issues.
This is the office and staff to go to, for TMJ and or just sleep difficulties. Not only is Dr. K’s knowledge of both areas stellar, but she strives to continually educate herself to provide support and answers for her patients. I so wish I had known about the root of my sleeping problems yrs ago, but I am so thankful I have been under her care now. So many issues have improved and I am grateful.
Dr. Kristina and her team are very knowledgeable and caring professionals. I started with their office due to jaw pain as a result of a sleep disorder. Dr. Kristina uses sophisticated imaging equipment which results in a thorough evaluation and personalized treatment plan. I always appreciate their geniune concern and also their smiles at my office visits! Thank you for making a difference in my health and quality of life!
