Dr. Waxman is a fantastic doctor. He is thorough, answers my questions without judgment and treats me with respect. He has treated me for many years and has always been accurate and professional. Many thanks to him and his staff for making my stressful experiences more positive.

I am basing this review off of his office staff, who double billed my husband. My insurance is working with this office to resolve the issue, but the office will not respond and have sent my husband's bill into collections. Do NOT use!
