VERY EXCELLENT

November 29, 2016

Dr Waxman is cool. But the woman who did the pre-check? She was AWESOME. Figured out why I was having an adverse reaction to one of my medicines. GREAT hands with the drops. Please figure out who she is and give her a bonus or something.

I typically have an issue trusting physicians due to misdiagnosis and mistreatment in the past. Dr. Waxman takes the time to listen to your comments and respond appropriately. He takes the time to explain, to share with you his perception of what is happening, and if need be to tell you that he is not sure or doesn't know but will research it for you. And he follows through. He has won my trust.

My wife and I feel vey fortunate that we are able to see such a skilled doctor as Dr. Waxman. We have been his patients for years and would not want to see anyone else.

Dr. Waxman & staff are the best. They are thorough, friendly and never make me feel rushed. They always make sure I understand everything.
