Great Office team. I had contact with Jerry, Bella, Karen/Kathy, and Dr. Hooton in addn to Dr Waxman. All were good. Great team.

Dr. Waxman was friendly, approachable, showed a high level of sensitivity and care. This was the first time I met with Dr. Waxman and it was a very good experience. I would definitely see him again.

I had an excellent experience with Dr. Waxman and his staff. They were very thorough and explain everything in terms that I can understand. I will definitely refer Dr. Waxman.

excellent doctors

August 05, 2016

This would have been great except that I got 'forgotten' after the laser treatment and before the final ocular pressure check. After 45 minutes I complained (it was supposed to happen about 20 minutes after the treatment). I was not impressed. If there is a problem, I expect to be told about it. Having to sit there and guess, and finally ask is not acceptable service. As it stands, it caused me to blow by the 2 hour free parking, so this failure actually cost me money. Had it occurred on a timely basis, it would have been well within the 2 hours free parking. I was told to expect it to take about 90 minutes. It ended taking 130 minutes because of this problem.

Of all the eye doctors I've ever seen, this one was by FAR the best. He was the most knowledgeable, cordial, and professional I've experienced. The same goes for his staff.

August 02, 2016

Dr. Waxman is amazing! His knowledge and aggressive approach has helped me to regain my vision and my confidence. I am very satisfied with my care.

Nurses were not involved.Physician involved himself in total health not just his area of expertise.
