Dr. Wayman is highly professional, friendly, very thorough, and takes the time to listen to you. You never feel rushed and he spends at least 15 to 20 minutes on your case. The only problem with this office is the wait time.

Dr. Wayman is consistently friendly, respectful and compassionate. He is an excellent, patient listener. He is thorough and unhurried in his examination, problem-solving, and diagnosis. His considerable knowledge and experience clearlyshows. When I have a complicated health question, I seek him out for knowledgeable, prudent advice. Dr. Wayman even takes the time to explain and educate so that I may better understand how to take care of myself. He seems to be well-liked and respected by his staff. The computer program installed in recent months has slowed down everything in the workings of the office and added to the waiting time to see the doctor. I know that this is the wave of the future being pushed, but a more elegant, sensible program needs to be used. This was a corporate decision of Meridian Health Care and has nothing to do with the good doctors and support staff that work there.

I booked an appointment at 4 PM, arrived 15 minutes early, and didn’t see the doctor until 6 PM. I just moved to a new state and I’m trying to switch doctors and still have access to my depression medicine, but,conveniently enough, Dr. Wayman has not had any time to review my medical records in the past (almost) two weeks to send in a refill. I’ve gone so far as to call my old doctor personally, pick them up myself, and hand deliver them to this office to ensure I’d have my medicine particularly prior to starting a new job. Honestly, between the blatant lack of consideration from the doctor and the complete lack of professionalism of the receptionists, I would rather suffer while finding a different doctor than go here ever again. Don’t waste your time, you will ultimately regret it.

A very knowledgeable doctor. His expertise comes from treating all kinds of patients with their health issues. He has an easy, friendly manner. He is also very thorough when interviewing/examining a patient - a seeming rarity in medical treatmentthese days. Thank you Dr. Wayman - and his staff, as well!

The visit was very good but the waiting time really got to me I waited 2 hours crazy!! But I guess allot of other doctors have waiting times like that. Overall I would recommend Dr Wayman very professional and doesn't justpush you out the door and seems to take a personal interest in his patients.
