Specialties

Dr. Jack Waxman has the following 2 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

Everything wrong with Drs today in one man

Waxman is condescending, incapable of listening to a patient, insists on mansplaining and refuses to hear anything that could be relevant to a patient's treatment. He literally yelled over my attempts to tell him he didn't have the information he was assuming (and was horribly wrong about). When I couldn't defend his assumptions he chose to lash out at my PCP for being incompetent rather than listen to me. He concluded I wasn't "worth treating until I had lost at least one organ system." Horrible, useless provider. Not worth the gas it took my Prius to get to the appt.

Very satisfied

Had read reviews, mixed, some where quite negative.... don't know why. I found him knowledgeable, had sense of humor. We had an hour with him. We left with a plan of action. He was very thorough. I have a complex disorder. Would recommend!

Good physician

Dr. Waxman explains things thoroughly and without hesitation. He is very honest with you about your diagnosis and what you should or could do to improve. He seems to be extremely well read and up to date on his specialty more than any others I had seen for the same problem. Like his sense of humor also and his staff.
