Awesome Support

Dr Wiznitzer has been supporting us for over 8 years from when my son was first diagnosed with autism. His approach is direct which I really appreciate. His experience allows him to cut to the chase and really help you understand how to help your child and appreciate his development. He has been spot on with our son. His support has made us feel more in control over something we have no control over by truly looking at the facts in front of us. He don't sugar coat our situation and his gives us good tools/advice for helping our son and ourselves in dealing with his challenges.

AUSTISM SPECIALIST- NOT!!!!

AWFUL doctor with a terrible bed side manner to say the least. We will NOT be returning, and I highly recommend all parents to consider finding another physician. He is abrupt, curt, and disrespectful... I cannot say more, and unfortunately we have to find another specialist for our child.

OMG loved reading these reviews I was beginning to think I was the only person who thought this guy was full of crap. His behavior is unexceptable for a dr. and for someone who is known its not what you would expect. We saw him once he shut us down everytime we talked my husband walked out with our son he couldn't even listen to the guy anymore and my daughter and I stayed behind he told me the other drs had no clue what they were talking about that she is a difficult child okay what does that mean? I had to do my own research and reach out to other parents to get an understanding as to what he even ment. He was also dosing off in our appt, I mean this guy is so not professional at all and we refuse to see him again I let all of her dr.s no how terrible our experience was with him. My daughter had a fit and he told me to walk out to the hall to talk to him I went back in got my daughter and got in a loud argument with him as he was letting her bang her head against the tile floor he is a neurologist for crying out loud. My husband relates him to Dr. house the t.v show and the way he came in acted and couldn't stay awake . Terrible experience
