Excellent caring physician.

I have been to many doctors throughout my life, and i have to say Dr. Waxenbaum is by far the best. He listened, made me feel at ease, was funny and very professional. His staff his very professional and friendly!

Dr. Waxenbaum treated my mother at Valley Hospital. And by treated, I mean he did one physical exam, recognized her tumor as cancer, and then was not seen again until four days later. He entered the room to give the results of her biopsy and spent less than two minutes in the room, telling her it was Stage 2, possibly 3 depending on how far it's spread. He then said he had a 4:30 meeting and had to leave, and answered no follow-up questions. HORRIBLE bedside manner.
