Gretna, LA |
.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.

Dr. Wax is a great surgeon to be so young. He did some wrist work on me and so for so good
