Care Philosophy

Our policy is to see new patients within a day or two of their first call. If the need is urgent, we will always see a patient (new or established) the same day he or she calls. New patients should bring all of their prescription medicines with them, in their original containers, for the initial consultation. We encourage new patients to bring a spouse or other family member with them for the visit.

Wildwood, NJ |
Went for appt was told would not be seen in office again as I didn't get his long list of test done. Well I got sick for 2 weeks from first visit here then daughter was hurt dealing with 4 drs and workers comp for this so never made testing. Which had nothing to do with why I went there. Was told irresponsible, sorry called being a MOM! He is ignorant,rude, and test happy. Wouldn't recommend this dr unless you got deep pockets for all test he likes to order for nothing.. Can't give no stars.

I was a patient of Dr. Weisbren I have chronic kidney disease and I am on dialysis. The doctor terminated me because I did not go to the GI doctor of his choosing because I had to have surgery he said me having surgery was just an excuse not to go to the appointment and that the his GI appointment was more important than my surgery even though I need dialysis to live. He was my pain management as well he stopped writing my scripts and said it wasn't his problem I couldn't get in pain management
Best doctor we have ever had- on top of all your problems, thorough, friendly, courteous, very competent and gives you his cell so that you can reach him at 10 pm on a Saturday night or 6 am on a Sunday morning. Walk ins always accepted.

He has taken a genuine and thorough approach in my overall care. He collects your info from outside dr's and labs, etc, reviews it, sends you a copy with his signature showing he has reviewed it , and goes over it when he sees you in person. He listens, cares, and I felt he has been very competent. He has been very good with our friends too.

I was a patient of doctors from 2008 to 2016. I received a letter the other day terminating my care with doctor and I have no idea why? The only reason I can think of is that I have several other specialty doctors and dr wais bran wanted me to give up the other doctor so he could be primary caregiver. As the old adage says don't put all your eggs in one basket. I do believe that he is a very confident and I had confidence in him when I was under his care.

I had been Dr, Waisbren's patient since 2012 for COPD but was treated by his nurse practitioner, Melissa Trout. When she set up her own office, I went with her. Because she has contracted cancer and closed her office, I recently returned (5/4/16) to him only to be told by an office staff member that Dr. Waisbren dropped me as a patient 2 years ago because of a letter I had supposedly written to a local newspaper.. I was told that he disagreed with what I said. Is that professional? Ethical?
