Dr. Charles Waisbren, MD

Internist, Primary Care Doctor

Professional statement

I run an independent, traditional medical practice. Hence I don’t work in a big clinic with large waiting rooms, ever changing staff or a huge billing department. I don’t utilize physician assistants or nurse practitioners and because I am independent, I can refer to the best specialists and the best hospitals. I provide old school service with cutting edge medical attention. I care about my patients, respond to their needs, answer their questions and get them well. I focus on my patients as individuals; not a collection of symptoms. I handle everything from preventive medicine to treatment of acute and chronic conditions. I offer same day or next day appointments with on line scheduling and little or no wait times. I know that my patients are busy and that is why I have built my practice designed to run efficiently. My office is in a “state of the art” building with ample parking, full office laboratory, on location radiology, CT and MRI services, an on location physical therapy department and a full service pharmacy. Patients are able to “private message me” on Facebook and read my tri-weekly posts there as well. It indeed is service like it used to be; medical care how it ought to be. Patient oriented; physician guided.

Dr. Waisbren is high energy. I had read some reviews before I went and I saw that he gets through his appointments quickly. So I came prepared with a bullet point list of things I needed to talk to him about.This helped me remember everything I needed to talk to him about and kept me from feeling rushed. He listened and read through my problems. I think he will be a good fit for me. I like to advocate for myself and do my own research. Some doctors get offended when you don't just take their word for it. (I was actually fired as a patient for not taking another doctor's word for it and proving him wrong. I was fired because I didn't trust him. Really? It was my health he was hurting.) But Dr. Waisbren actually encouraged me to do more research about what his prefered approach will be for my case.

Dr. Waisbren was decent. I could have done without the ~45 minute delay before getting to see him. I think some of his medical knowledge is a bit questionable, such as recommending a 1000 calorie/day diet for a >200 lb maleto lose weight. For the record, I ended up following a more rational approach (500-600 calorie deficit) and lost 45 lbs in the next 6 months. That being said, he was otherwise pleasant and did dispense advise in a no-nonsense manner, which I appreciated.

I felt like my doctor was friendly and personable. I got the feeling that he was in a rush. This may have been because I was a few minutes late to my appointment (I had a hard time finding the office).Staff was friendly, and I'm sure that this doctor could be a very good fit for some patients.
