Jeffrey L. Wolf



Dr. Jeffrey L. Wolf is a hematologist with expertise in cancers of the bone marrow and blood, as well as in bone marrow transplantation to treat these cancers. His primary focus in both patient care and research is myeloma, the second most common blood cancer. He directs UCSF's Multiple Myeloma Program and the Stephen and Nancy Grand Multiple Myeloma Translational Initiative – a program to support the development of better treatments – at the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Wolf's current research interests are in measuring minimal residual disease in patients who have undergone successful treatment for myeloma, as the results are useful in predicting long-term survival.

Wolf earned his medical degree at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago and completed a residency in medicine at the University of California, San Diego. He completed a fellowship in hematology and oncology at UCSF, followed by a bone marrow transplantation rotation at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

In 1979, Wolf helped establish the bone marrow transplant program at the City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center in Duarte, California. In 1984, he helped establish the first bone marrow transplant unit based at a community hospital in the United States, at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley. He joined UCSF in 2007.

    I brought my wife along to the meeting as it was my first meeting and we are both scared and worried. I can't express how good the appointment was. All of the above items were Very Good both my wife and my questions and concerns were answered with detail and compassion. For the first time in months we both left feeling better more Informed empowered and cared for than when we walked in. I cried in the car because I felt calm for the first time in months.

    My blood test results are not improving and Dr Wolf is on top of everything he suggests that if counts continue there might be treatment in my future. He discussed it with me and I feel very secure with his lead. He is the best doctor I've ever had.
    Nov 11, 2022
    Care provider left most of the appointment to a new fellow who knew nothing about the disease. Care provider did not remember meeting me at a previous visit. Which is understandable but I think they should have reviewed notes from the previous visit and realized that. Also they gave me information that was different from previous visit. I left somewhat confused.
