I was frightened about the procedure but was talked through, gently and kindly by all of the staff.

This was a truly excellent experience. Dr. Waxman is a model health care provider: Knowledgeable, professional, empathetic, and respectful of his patients. I wish all providers and their teams could be even half as good as he and team. It would transform health care!

Excellent care by Dr. Waxman - always feel that he's the best provider.

Dr. Waxman is the best eye doctor around! I have gone to many specialists and feel he is by far the most intelligent, respectful, caring, and understanding of them all. He is concerned about his patients and squeezes me into his full schedule if I am having any eye problems. Dr. Waxman takes time to listen and makes recommendations taking the patient into consideration. I would recommend (and have) to anyone who has eye conditions.
