Patient Comments (4)

I have been a patient of Dr Wassons for over 15 yrs. He is absoultely the best. He has gotten me through HPV, an abnormal mass in my breast and has always shot straight with me. His staff changes frequently, but Im not there for his staff. Love him!

DR. Wasson is the most caring doctor that I have ever had. He has been my doctor for a long time and I totally trust and respect him. He has never been rude or uncaring during my visits. His office staff are very friendly and helpful.

I would NEVER recommend this office to anyone! The front desk staff is very rude! The doctor never once introduced himself to me. I came in having abnormal bleeding and had a pap done. He informed me that he saw a mass in my cervix and that it was probably CANCER!! Not once did he explain anything...more

This patient was bleeding daily and hadn't seen a doctor in years. The truth is she does have a mass on her cervix. As she said in the review I explained that this was probably a cancer. She was told she would need a colposcopy and a biopsy of the mass. The pap smear showed likely cancer of the cervix. We have notified the patient of the finding, sent her a copy of the pap smear and asked her to seek another opinion if , as she says, she saw another doctor that said she is fine.

I have been going to Dr. Wasson for 21 years. I have been to a couple other OBGYN doctors but Dr Wasson is the best.
