The staff and the doctor were great! I took my dad here to get a follow-up after elevated PSA levels. Thedoctor was charming, sweet and tolerant with my dad despite his Alzheimer's. He explained the prognosis and options in a very warm and friendly manner.

Dr. Wainganker has an excellent bedside manner. He looks directly at you when speaking to you, he explains everything in easy-to-understand language, and I found him very reassuring. I was a bit nervous about my condition, but he really calmed me down by telling me that I had nothing to worry about.

I was referred to this doctor by my PCP (in the same office) for a chronic issue. He did not perform any of the diagnostic tests that my PCP told me to expect, and basically told me that there was nothing to be done but take medication indefinitely. He prescribed a medication that has serious side effects without discussing the side effects or the other options with me first.
