Dr. Waxman is a wonderful dr. He is informative, compassionate, and knowledgeable. He knows his patients, relates well to them, and he is the ultimate teacher for the doctors in training that he mentors. I am so happy that I am his patient.

there was an unusual situation with staff calling in sick, and so they were short handed. Dr Waxman came in to the waiting room to explain, which I thought was very well received. the delay was not as long as we expected and the staff did everything they could to move things along. I thought they handled everything very well.

Dr. Waxman is a very skilled and caring physician, and I have recommended him to many friends and acquaintances.

Dr. Waxman is absolutely first rate. Three other assistants were involved: Dr. "Leo", Bella, and Erika who was on a MD training rotation. All were very professional.Dr. Waxman is extremely busy--I had to wait nearly an hour to be seen and had to book way in advance, but my husband and I figure it is all worth it because Dr. Waxman is so good. I have never had such sophisticated eye care. And his variious interns and post docs are always impressive too. I like the fact that medical education is going on in the appointments. Interesting.

He is awesome!! The only thing is that it always takes a long time to get to see him. I waited nearly 45 minutes this time; it's usually 30-45 min. But when I get to see him he is prompt - not too fast or slow. He really knows his field and treats me like I'm a friend. Yeah. I like him. Great doctor!
