Specialties

Dr. Leonard H Wexler has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Hematology-Oncology
  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Cold and dismissive

He is cold hearted. Treated my daughter, was nice to her until her cancer came back then dismissed her. Never let us know it was coming back until it was to late.

Unbelievable

We called his office late in the afternoon after finding out that our son had cancer. His receptionist could not have been nicer or more friendly. He agreed to see us the following morning, but had his receptionist tell us that he was already over-booked (it's incredible how busy the practice is) and to be prepared that we might have to wait. When we arrived, we were greated courteusly and found a beautiful waiting room and play room, with a separate area for new families, away from the grim reality we were about to enter. We registered and then waited about a half-hour to be seen. Dr. Wexler spent nearly 2 hours with us that first morning (he spent easily 5 times that with us over the next week or two as we struggled to get our bearings and process huge amounts of information). He was amazing with our son - in fact, before he spoke to US, he turned to our son to speak with him. Our son's treatment has by no means been easy or without complications. Dr. Wexler has been there on every single occasion to explain what was happening, review treatment options and alternatives, and actively solicit our input on our son's care. He has dropped medications off at our home for our son. He has e-mailed and called late at night just to see how he (and we) were doing. He regularly calls to leave birthday greetings for our son on our answering machine. We could not imagine a more caring, compassionate, or brilliant physician to walk at the side of a family dealing with a child with cancer than Dr. Wexler.

Top doctor

Dr. Wexler is one of the most caring people I have ever met, and by far the most incredible doctor i have ever encountered during my four years of treatment. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of diagnosis and treatment. One of the most important things i have found is that when you are in the office talking to him he takes as much time as you need answering all questions as detailed as he can. You never feel like he has to see other patients as he will sit with you until you cannot think of any more questions to ask. When i was diagnosed at 19 my family and I were in the office for close to 2 hours with him. His bedside manner and his knowledge of all sarcoma's is what he is known for. He even attends a camp for children with cancer for two weeks every summer as the attending doctor, and is known for his sense of humor. I have never met a family who didn't give him glowing reviews and they are much deserved. If you have cancer or your child does, this is truly the best doctor to be treated by.
