On several occasions, I attempted to set up an appointment and when I finally got a date, he cancelled due to illness. So I attempted several times to reschedule but never received a return call.

Howard Wax is one of the most caring and generous people I have come to know. He has an ability to know you and understand you and it comes quickly to him. His guidance comes from a genuine concern for one's well being and he invests himself completely in you during consultations. Not only does he provide guidance, he also imparts knowledge and I have grown as a result of my interaction with him. I see Howard both in a private and group setting.
