Robert Rolfes, MD, is a board-certified internal medicine doctor.

The inspiration of his mother who was a registered nurse combined with a strong interest in science that developed in his adolescence led him toward a career in medicine.

Dr. Rolfes served as a U.S. Army doctor for 10 years. From the start of his medical career, he’s garnered the respect and appreciation of patients by providing thorough physical examinations and carefully listening to them as they describe their problems. He prides himself on these elements in his internal medical practice as he carries out his guiding philosophy that each patient be treated as a whole person rather than just being treated for their illness. His goal is for each of his patients to walk away from their appointment feeling that they received a valued medical service through the care he provides.

Married for more than thirty-five years, Dr. Rolfes and his wife relocated to Delaware in 2014 to live partway between their grown children—a daughter in New Jersey and a son in Virginia—to accommodate frequent family visits. In his free time, Dr. Rolfes stays active with his church and enjoys gardening.
