Excellent as always.

Dr. Waxman provides an excellent and thorough eye exam and an opportunity to discuss any concerns. Two criteria for selecting a good doctor that patients appreciate!

July 31, 2018

Dr. Waxman is a very good educator and I value that in a physician. I look at my health care providers as partners, and he is the best I've known. He seeks to understand me and helps me to better understand health situations because he knows I seek knowledge about how things work, as in my recent post-cataract surgery visit.
