Napa, CA |
Absolutely the worst experience with this Dr. I already have a dx and was seeking further treatment for a secondary and uncontrolled autoimmune disease. I asked to have a very specific set of blood tests to figure out how we could treat my condition Dr waxman declined stating my bloodwork didn’t warrant the test and I had fibromyalgia & needed more sleep - would not listen to my concerns,and told me on my next visit to wear a skirt for easier joint examination-I wore compression leggings

Dr. Waxman is the perfect example of everything wrong with the American "health care." I saw him for treatment for suspected lupus. It took over nine months for his staff to follow up on a basic referral. He never asked a question about medical history he didn't know, preferring to stereotype me. He belitted and mansplained everything. When I tried to interject answers to his "questions" he yelled over me. When challenged he could only blame by PCP for being incompetent rather than listenting.

His bedside manners are lacking. I thought he was rude. He is certainly not a compassionate doctor. I left his office feeling like the visit was a total waste. Needless to say, I never went back. You
Dr. Waxman and his staff always stives to meet patients' expectations, but when we fall short we need to hear from you directly so we can work to correct mistakes. We encourage you to call our office at your earliest convenience to share your experience with us directly.

Dr. Waxman diagnosed my RA and treated me successfully. My RA is now in remission! He has also put me on an effective treatment plan for my osteoporosis. I trust him. Great doctor!
in Santa Rosa, CA |
My experiences with Dr. Waxman have been outstanding in every way. He is an expert regarding osteoporosis and management of sarcoidosis, an auto-immune disorder that is rare and it has been hard to find a doctor who knows much about it, so I was very relieved to find that Dr. Waxman knew exactly what it was and what tests to order to monitor it and how to wean me off prednisone. He also has great, personable bedside manner. His nurses are wonderful, too. I wholeheartedly recommend him!
