This was my first visit at Dr. Wachter's office and it was a very pleasant experience. The office staff was friendly and welcoming. I was escorted to a patient room quickly and was seen by Dr. Wachter shortly thereafter. Dr. Wachterwas very thorough, professional, and respectful. He took the time to explain to me in great detail what procedures and treatments he would recommend and why. I felt that my concerns and questions were appropriately addressed and fully trust his knowledge in the field and professional recommendation. He is quite possibly the best physician I have ever interacted with and I would wholeheartedly recommend him.
