I used the patient portal to let Dr. Waxman know of a problem I was having. he responded promptly did fit me into an already busy schedule. Even with this, my wait time was only about 30 minutes, which I thought was exceptional given the circumstances.

February 05, 2019

Dr. Waxman shows concern for my condition and wants to remain on top of the situation. He also reassured me that because I was a cancer patient he would not let me fall through the cracks of the Highmark/UPMC insurance separation problem should I be affected by the agreement, which was most reassuring.

Dr did not push me into surgery but was willing to try other options first: surgery was last option, not first option

The care that I have received from Dr. Waxman and his staff has been exceptionally good throughout the time that I have been seen by them. They are caring and professional in every way.
