I have been a patient of Dr. Waks and Arlene Wright for 7 years. They are the perfect team and I am delighted he is my primary. I am very comfortable with either. My opinion is they are very caring and the very best in their field. I highly recommend them both.

My first visit with my new PC doctor, Dr. Waks, was very reassuring. He was interested in my history, any issues, who I was and took his time with me. I didn't feel rushed. It was a good first meeting.
