Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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.
