Yes, I usually have to wait, but that's because Dr. Wani takes the time to evaluate each patient thoroughly. He doesn't mind answering questions (of which I usually have several,) and has a depth of knowledge that has helped in keeping my conditions manageable.

Amazing doctor! Performed trigger point injections in my neck for years, and always did his best to make them as painless as possible (not easy!). Talks through the entire procedure, if you're a regular patient he'll actually remember you and ask questions about your life (for me he'd ask about my studies at university), this is quite soothing and distracting during an uncomfortable procedure and made a world of difference.

I have been a patient of Dr.Wani's since 1986. He is very intelligent man and he is a pleasure to speak to.on medicine and procedures along with other things.an example we have koi ponds and he knew so much. He and his staff go out of there way to help you and listen to you. Not shove u out the door. I wish more Dr's were like Dr Wani.
