Dr Wax seems to be very educated in podiatry. I like his attitude, he takes appropriate time and I don’t feel rushed out. My issue is with the staff, they need an office manager. I see staff watching tv, playing on iPhone and laughing, talking about what was on tv last night! Then when a patient arrives they have to wait for the lady’s to finish talking about some tv show! I have witnessed this on more than one occasion. Today I saw a Man who was struggling to get in the building, he finally ma

Walked in with terrible pain on the bottom of my feet, walked out feeling a lot better. I have been going to Dr. Wax since the late 80's and he has always been accurate with his prognosis. Plantar fasciitis surgery, then 10 years later surgery to re-attach my Achilles tendon and now the pain in feet due to losing weight/mass in my feet. I highly respect his abilities and enjoy my visits as he takes a very personal interest! I have recommended him to several friends and co-workers.

A nightmare. I’ve had two surgeries on my foot and will have to have a third one. My life has changed in a moment. I walk with a limp and still dealing with excruciating pain. He botched my foot not to hear from him anymore. I’ve lost my job of over 21 years because I had been out of work for over a year.

Dr. Wax has been my dr. for more than 20 years, and now has helped my daughter overcome a terrible case of plantar warts. He went above and beyond in communicating with me (via text on the weekends) He is down to Earth and direct. His staff is helpful and on top of things. Highly recommend Dr. Wax.

Calling into his office to make an appointment the receptionist was very short and abrasive. Customer service was poor. It change my mind in reference to seeking service.

Excellent doctor. He did surgery on both my ankles and they are better than ever. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Sure wish he treated back disorders.

A waste of time and money. Unfriendly office staff and bad bedside manners. Does not explain anything.

This doctor was rude, dismissive, and incompetent. I have never been treated so disrespectfully by a doctor in my life. He is very upsetting and I would not recommend him in any capacity.
