Dr. Waxman was extremely competent and clear. His medical student assistant was also excellent. Overall I was very, very satisfied and left without any doubt that I had been in good hands.

Superior service with this provider as always

Actually, my 2 sons have been seeing Dr. Waxman for a number of years, and convinced me to go to him for my cataract surgery and general visits. He is a marvelous, skilled physician, and carefully listens to all my concerns and answers all my questions. Now, I recommend him to all my friends.

I appreciate Dr Waxman telling me what I do have instead of what was told me three years ago. Thank you for the truth

Dr. Waxman and his team provided the highest level of care I have ever received. They operate as a well oiled machine and everyone showed more concern about my surgery and treated me with deep personal understanding. Dr. Ross and Dr. Waxman delayed my second surgery to order a special lens because they were concerned that I would be sensitive to the yellow cast of the standard lens because of my photography background. They juggled their schedules at the last minute to accommodate this. This attention to the needs of the patient is equal to their surgical skill.

I have had very positive experiences and would recommend the doctor with great confidence
