What People Say About Dr. Sharon Wasserstrom, MD

Dr. Wasserstrom is one of the first, if not the first doctors in the Bronx to be certified by ACLM, the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. This is surely the future of medicine, focusing primarily on diet and on what we can do for ourselves with our lifestyle to stay in optimal health as long as possible.

i have been with this doctor for about 3 years and I'm searching for a new one as I type. She does no follow up when test come back abnormal. Will send you a notice of whats wrong with no explanation no plan nothing. She is not patient friendly. Felt as if when i asked questions and expected feed back she looked as if she was spaced out or thinking about something else. When not feeling well you call or send message through my chart and she never responses.

My experience with this doctor was very disappointing. She has been my primary care doctor for a few years and she does not know any of my health problems. She does not review my chart before seeing me. Every time I visit her office she ask me the same questions as if it's been my first visit. She shows zero interest in my medical problems. She sent me to see a few specialist and she didn't even know which doctor she sent me to. I do not feel safe with her. she is horrible! Do not trust her!

Dr. Wasserstrom has poor bedside manners. She barely looks at patient and is quick to refer to other physicians before explaining possible ailments or giving suggestions.
