I don’t think there is better than him. I was pleased with my surgical outcome and he was also. I may have to change drs but I will miss him . I feel comfortable and safe in his care

Worst doctor. Screwed up on my husbands surgery. He then caused him to have a stoke. Look for someone else

Won't recommend this Dr. Was condescending and not very respectful. You are so supposed to put a patient at ease, not have them leaving upset and angered??

I have been a patient of Dr. Waxman for seven years. He really cares about his patients and has also received high remarks from my other doctors. I give him credit for saving my life in 2009. Had I not listened to him I would not be here to write this review. I think he is an excellent doctor.
