Very nice, dr and PA always take the time to listen to me and very helpful figuring out a POC. Almost never a long wait in the waiting room only once did I have to wait and that was only because he was coming back from emergency surgery. And even then the staff kept me updated all the time.

Dr. Wasserlauf fixed my problem in ONE VISIT! I never expected it to work out so wall. Perhaps my problem was easy, but my primary care physician was completely stumped. Thank you, sir. Excellent work.

I've been to Dr. Wasserlauf in the past when I was experiencing hip discomfort. He was very knowledgeable, had a great bedside manner, and helped my problem with a simple shot of cortisone. Recently I injured my shoulder and actually saw his physician assistant Kristen. She was caring, patient, and very efficient as well. Definitely a great experience every time. Thank you.

First time seeing Dr Wasserlauf I came in with a muscle tear. The entire staff was kind, calm n efficient. Dr W was kind, gentle and took his time. When I couldn't assume a position to be fully examined he asked me how he would be able to examine my injury and he worked w/ me- I was so uncomfortable & he suggested PT to be sure there are no future limitations and more info on the extent of the injury. Confident, humble, accomodating, professional, kind, relaxed, careful. Wonderful experience!
