Dr Wazaz saved my racing career, I came to him needing a miracle and that’s what he gave me, just a month before my spartan regional championship race I came to him with such pain and discomfort it was hard to function day to day let alone run up a mountain with obstacles, Dr Wazaz fixed my hemorrhoids and other issues and I was training again in no time, I have him to thank for my 2nd place finish in the Regional Championship and 8th in the Worlds, I would recommend Dr Wazaz to everyone !!

I had so many problems with my stomach. Other doctors told me I had spasms. Doctor Wazaz was the only one who did a test that confirmed my bile duct was not functioning. 12 plus years I have been going through this with no relief. He did a procedure were he cut scare tissue from my bile duct. After having the stent removed, I no longer have those debilitating pains. So glad I found a doctor that would listen to me.

My husband and I have been going to Dr. Wazaz for quite a few years now. I had a big problem a year ago and Dr. Wazaz told me I will get you better. He had to do this test and that test and when I would go in for a follow up he always assured me that he's going to get me better, which he did. If it wasn't for him I don't know what would have happened to me. HE SAVED MY LIFE!! He's an excellent Dr.!! My husband and I definitely would recommend him to family and friends.

Dr Wazaz was unbelievable. I have had stomach issues for a long time. I feel when I go into his office he is very attentive and really listens to what I have to say and does not do a 15 minute visit and then push you out of the room. I would recommend Dr. Wazaz to anyone.

I’m finally smiling again! I was just recently referred to Dr. Wazaz after 5 long years of battling the symptoms associated with IBS. I was having constant abdominal pain, bloating, fatigue and none the less anxiety about living with these symptoms the rest of my life! He is the 3rd gastroenterologist I’ve seen in the past 5 years and all I can say is I AM BLESSED. With the right medication and treatment plan my symptoms have resolved! Best doctor ever!!!!!

Dr Wazaz was literally a lifesaver, I was 35 weeks pregnant and in extreme pain from a thrombosed hemorrhoid. He saw me right away and immediately sent me to a surgeon to have it removed.

After countless trips to the ER and hospital stays over the years with no diagnosis, I had the lucky fortune of being taken one day to Midstate where I met Dr. Jung. I finally had a diagnosis and understanding of what my issue was. Recently, the attacks had become more frequent so he referred me to his partner Dr. Wazaz for a highly specialized procedure called Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). I am finally free of the pain that plagued me for so long thanks to Dr. Wazaz!

Dr Wazaz is “the” doctor who listens! I recently had the ERCP procedure and saw a positive change in my health — people who were not aware that I underwent this procedure commented on how good I looked by just looking at my face— not in constant pain - I wasn’t even aware that my grimaces were notable. More patients should be aware of this procedure and end the long suffering road. My humble thanks to Dr Wazaz!

I had been to two different doctors and suffered from severe Ulcerative Colitis. In between two bouts of C-diff and several hospital stays, there was no improvement. The condition lasted for a period of 5 months until seeing Dr. Wazaz. Since I have had different and MOST effective treatment. I am no longer incontinent and have recovered 95% within 6 weeks. Dr. Wazaz has seemingly worked miracles compared to other physicians I have seen for this condition. He is a Master Gastroenterologist.
