I believe that good medicine starts with good relationships. Those relationships build over time so that we can support and improve the quality of life for the most frail and ill patients in our population. I am a cancer survivor, having endured 18 months of cancer treatment including multiple surgeries, multiple cycles of chemotherapy back in 1990-1991. I truly believe in making life a better experience for all those who suffer and endure the hardships of a cancer diagnosis.

Dr. Wagner Says:

I have done my personal best to improve the care that my office provides over the years. I take personal responsibility for every challenge, problem or difficulty that my patients have experienced. In 2014, I have completely overhauled my staff.  Front office staff have been let-go, new ones hired and extensive training has been implemented to ensure the friendliness, helpfulness and efficiency...

Aliso Viejo, CA |
Doctor is excellent and cares about outcomes. Is willing to explain the details and is clear in his recommendations. The office is not organized. Faxes are lost. if the fax is received there is no entry placed in the file which prevents any follow up by staff. The response is "please fax it again". They do answer the phone promptly but there is a lack of relevant info in the file to provide answers. They encourage their Web or Message system. This would simply delay a status result.

Calm and kind. Some times over scheduled.
Dr. Wager’s Compassionate Care Oncology really lives up to it’s name. He seems genuinely concerned about me as a whole patient rather than simply a collection of symptoms to treat. He took the time to carefully explain each of my many questions and put me at ease (which is tough to do). He’s also extraordinary when it comes to communication. After seeing a dozen other doctors in the last year, none has come close to Dr. Wagner. He has embraced the online patient portal. When I had a couple

Very good in explaining what is taken place.
in Aliso Viejo, CA |
Not only is Dr. Wagner truly caring, he takes the time to listen and explains things fully, tailoring the needed message for the individual's understanding, which is a great help when information needs to be communicated to family and friends. Dr. Fiona is the same way, and both have a wonderful sense of humor. The office team are fantastic and are ready to assist with everything from my schedule to sourcing financial assistance when needed. The nurses are kind and caring. I love the whole team.

Dr. Wagner is a very kind and understanding doctor for anyone on the cancer journey. He has been through it himself. The staff and the nurses are excellent.
in Laguna Woods, CA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Wagners for many years as a result of anemia and constant blood problems/G.I. bleeding from 16 years of Chronic Pain from damage to the Trigeminal Nerves and the Superficial Temporal Artery which was cut and tied off during a facial surgery procedure. My career was in Quality of Care and I can tell you without hesitation that Dr. Wagner and his fine staff have always treated me properly and personally with my health, not money, as the key to their success. THE BEST!
in Aliso Viejo, CA |
Made appointment. Told manager I wanted to discuss options after a double mastectomy. I began feeling sick a few minutes after I arrived, headache, earache, nausea. Then, a young man wanted to weigh me. I asked why. He said to schedule my treatments. I knew he meant chemo. I told him I was there to discuss "options" not to schedule chemo.His receptionist informed me another woman before me wanted to "discuss" options and he refused to see her. I left.Chemo house? No other options?
