Dr. Wax is a very thorough and efficient doctor. Great bedside manor. Explained every detail of surgery to my husband and I both before and after the surgery. Would say if you need an orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Wax is the doctor you want. We drive from Mississippi to have surgery done and all follow up.

We saw Dr. Wax when my 4 year old fractured his wrist (We didn’t have surgery- only a cast) We really liked him. He was very nice, knowledgeable, and great with our kid. We were able to get a same-day appt, and we never had to wait more than 2 minutes in the waiting room. We never felt rushed when we were with him. I’d recommend him!

.While Dr. Wax is an amicable doctor who spends all the time needed per patient, he seems to lack the understanding and compassion when it comes to crippling pain. I intend to pursue a second opinion even though I agree about the knee replacement surgery. He offered little alternatives to curb the pain until I built up enough time to take off from work. I most likely would not recommend Dr. Wax to anyone I care about.

Not at all satisfied with my hand surgery preformed by barton wax on October 5,2016. Wax has a pleasant personality and he led me to believe l would have a successful out come.I trusted him and now I have 50% or less of hand strength, more pain, swelling and cant make a tight fist. If l had a choice to do it over l WOULDN'T. Now l wonder if this botched surgery had anything to do with his anger right before my operation . He should have cancelled my surgery.
