Kept telling me my pain wasn’t real and that I just needed exercise. He’s also the second doctor to tell me my migraines were all in my head.

Just didn't feel connected with him. Seems like it didn't understand my problem or maybe he just didn't want to listen to me. I am still dealing with the pain I was suffering from when I met him and walked out his office with no resolution. He even referred me to someone that seems to not care such as he didn't. Long wait, very quick visit.

May be a good doctor for someone who likes to be in and out but the appointment was very rushed. Also, I had blood results taken and received no call on them. I understand if the results were normal but I felt horrible and went to a different doctor to have them retested. Sure enough the results showed I needed my medicine adjusted and I feel much better now.

During my first visit, I had to ask him to repeat himself after he mumbled something, and he responded/repeated by shouting out easily loud enough that if there were other patients in adjacent rooms, they would have heard it clearly. At the end of the visit, got a heavy heavy push to hand him my phone so I could like him on Facebook. had to say no three times. Was told I would be contacted about blood test results, never was. Called myself, was told I'd be called back same-day, no callback.

I've been a satisfied patient of Dr. Waisbren's for over 15 years. What I like most about my visits to his office is he tells it like it is. He's genuinely concerned with your health and well-being. I've never been to a better doctor in being able to diagnose a health issue so quickly and right on the money. I feel fortunate to have him in my health care corner. Plus, his staff is knowledgeable and friendly too. I'd highly recommend Dr. Waisbren to anyone who's in need of a family doctor.

We have been patients of Dr. Waisbren for over 20 years. We continued to see Dr. Waisbren because we have complete confidence in his knowlege and care for us. He keeps up with the latest in medicines and he is thorough. He is a no nonsense doctor, he is a very compassionate doctor, he truly cares for you and sees you as a real person not just a number. I wish everyone I knew would go to him. He really is the best.

Dr. Waisbren has been my primary physician for well over 20 years now, and he has always been pro-active when I developed any illness or symptoms...often providing me with free samples of new(er) medications that I could not afford or have access thru my own health insurance company. He always cuts to the hard-truth on current issues & does NOT get too technical for a person to understand. His staff is equally efficient & kind/engaging when it comes to performing preventative tests & lab work.
