What People Say About Dr. Philip Wasserstein, MD
Reply
Late for my appointment only to spend inordinate amount of time collecting minutiae about my condition and then ask me those same questions repeatedly because he didn't accurately record my answers. Finally declared he didn't know what was wrong with me, didn't suggest any follow up, didn't recommend any treatments or medication for my peripheral symptoms, insinuated some of my symptoms were psychological, said he was out of time and showed me to the door. Extremely upsetting appointment.

Dr. Wasserstein has treated my early-onset Parkinson's Disease for over 20 years. He is outstanding in every way (with the possible and very minor exception that he sometimes appears a little scruffy). He explains things very well, listens closely to your problems and concerns and does a remarkable job at meeting the patient at the patient's emotional and intellectual levels. I simply cannot imagine being under better care.
