Dr. Wakslak has been a terrific doctor for my AFIB and cardio myopothy for the past 3 years. Was being managed by a PA who kept changing my medication for 3 years and finally I asked her if there is something else that could be done and she referred me to Dr. Wakslak who controlled my AFIB through a procedure called cardio ablation and a cardio version which turned out to do the trick. He is a very patient and a caring doctor whom I highly recommend as a cardiologist.

The man is a blessing. Never had a doctor who was so careful and thorough with my care. I have no doubt I'll live longer because of him. My MIL is definitely alive because of him. She was at the hospital when he was on shift one night and the staff was going to send her home. He happened to be close by and caught wind of what was up and intervened, reviewed her case right there and stopped everything to immediately install a pace maker in her chest. She would have died that night.

Dr. Wakslak is knowledgeable, compassionate and has a great bedside manner. And a sense of humor. Thanks to Dr. W's recommendation, my regular cardiologist changed my medication and I'm feeling much better.

The place is a mill. How can any cardiologist do his job when he sees 40 patients each day?
