Patient Comments (3)
San Jose, CA |
She not only has the education, years of experience, stays up to date on current treatments and has a great network of doctors, she truly cares about her patients. I've never met a better doctor.
in Zion, Illinois |
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Wait. In my wife's interaction with her (which I participated in) Dr. Wait took the time (unlike many doctors today) to treat the patient, not just the medical condition. I found her patient, sympathetic, knowledgeable and professional, she made what could have been an uncomfortable visit (my wife has had bad luck with doctors in the past) into something truly productive. Her staff was also helpful, courteous and professional.
New York, NY |
I have been her patient for three years. I have a good day until I enter her office. She is not that great to have to wait more than three months to see her, her staff is horrible and her nurse Suzanne is an arrogant and useless person. Today I fired them, my husband did too because he had enough of them already. Do not trust this practice anymore
