I believe I left one already but Dr. Wasserman deserves more praise than I can possibly give. He took on a problem of a broken bone I got & talked to other doctors & came up with a plan since this break is rare and I'm not a candidate for surgery. He cares, he didn't have to go above and beyond but he does because his patients matter to him. I trust him 100%. His office staff is just as caring. I thank them for putting up with my husband as well. He also refers you to good doctors. Thank you!

Poor diagnostician. Do NOT see him for an accident claim. He accused me of using him to get money for what he said was just arthritis. It was not. It was a whiplash. I went to him on a recommendation from a Fellow Lutheran General Dr. The pain he said was arthritis has disappeared after many Chiropractic visits. However, the Gabapentin he prescribed for what he said was Arthritis left me with lifelong irreversible Tinnitus, (ringing of the ears). He insulted me in front of my wife.
