What People Say About Dr. Matthew Wasserman, MD

Excellent experience. Had a serious back injury requiring surgery. I can report after about five years I am doing great without pain. I highly recommend Dr. W for anyone who is facing back surgery. He is the best without question. Also not a doctor who will just operate on you. He is very ethical. I have referred other family members and friends to him over the last few years. Everyone has had a great experience either with just treatment or surgical results. Would rate him six stars if available.

After having cervical fusion with Dr. Wasserman, I called his assistant Denise to come in to be examed after being hit by a car while riding my bike. I was so shook up, I had a hard time expressing myself over the phone. She was short with me, so the conversation went nowhere. I ended up not coming in, but transferring care to another physician downtown, although I lived in Katy. I ended having to have another back fusion and I’m currently being treated for unhealed nerves.

This doctor is not honest. I was a workers comp patient and was referred to him. He did not examine me or anything and told me I had nothing wrong. Went to another dr and was told I needed a fusion surgery. This decision was determined from the MRI which Dr Wasserman never attempted to look at.

He did a 5 level spinal fusion on me and it has helped so much. Unfortunately, I need more surgery, but at my age and with my health I don't know if I will have it. Dr. Wasserman and his PA Josh are great surgeons and I would send anyone i love to him. I have complete faith in him. xx

I went in for back pain. I had to wait 1.5 hours to see him. He literally spent 1 minute with me. He seemed interested in just getting me out of there as soon as possible. I explain my problem and didn't let me finish. When he realized they took the wrong xrays, lower instead of upper back, he said don't worry about it. He is by far the worst doctor I've ever seen.
