My experience was terrible! He had never treated someone with my condition so he referred me to neurology in hopes it was something else. Didn't find thus out till almost a year later when neurology sent me back to him with blood work and other resluts. He was always very rude, made me prove I had rhynauds with pictures, asked my husband if the pictures were real. I urge anyone considering seeing him to reconsider. I also waited and minimum 2 hours to been seen for each appointment

Yes, the office is horrible. Yes, the waiting is too. I drove 50 miles one way to see him many times. He appeared in court for me in a workmen's compensation case when no one else would help me. He was happy to do it. Yes, I had trouble getting the final statement that my condition was work related. All that stuff is true. But if you need a doctor who's not afraid to go to court for you, he's your man. I won my case thanks to Dr. Wasicek and will always be grateful.

I has been seeing him for 2 years and still has no answers to what's wrong. Every time I go in there he is sending me for more tests without explaining why. The waiting time to be seen is unacceptable. Once he does come in he asked me why I taking meds that he prescribed to her. His office is contently sending out bills for co-pays that we have already paid. There is no filing system in place. The office is messing and unorganized. I do not recommend to family or friends
Prepare to wait 3 hours and that's just in the waiting room! Cramped with little to do, I really hope you bring a book, or novel! Terrible bedside manner. Oh, let's wait another hour or two in the room! One time he FORGOT about me in a room. Thank goodness I took a nap (2.5 hours waiting in the room after my 2 hours in the waiting room). You'll have a faster appointment driving to Upstate and have better care there too!
