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?
