Dr. Steven J Wassner has the following 3 specialties
- Pediatric Nephrology
A nephrologist is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions affecting the kidneys or renal system.
A nephrologist will determine through urine analysis, blood test, X-ray, sonogram, or kidney biopsy how well the kidneys are functioning and will then prescribe a special diet and exercise program, medication or dialysis - a process by which a machine filters the blood when the kidney is no longer capable of doing so.
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.

Dr. Wassner is one of the finest Dr's I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Dr Wassner took care of my two children when they were younger and now is taking care of my beautiful granddaughter who thinks he is terrific. I have known Dr. Wassner for the past 30yrs. and he never changes. He is loving and kind, great bedside manner, takes time to talk and explain things to you. All around great person.
I will NEVER schedule an appointment with this doctor! I was referred to Dr. Wassner by myt daughter's pediatrician (who is a coworker of Dr. Wassner) and after waiting for over an hour on the phone to verify that he was able to see my daughter on an emergency basis due to the urgency of the matter.When Dr. Wassner finally decided to pick up the line he referred to me only as "Lady" although he asked my name SIX times. After explaining who referred me to him and why he told me he did not want to see my daughter. I assumed he meant timing wise he couldn't see her and when I stated I would like to placed in the waiting list he "screamed" into the phone "what do you want me to do".Long story short, even though my daughter had documented severe kidney disease he would not even schedule an appointment to review her case.STAY AWAY FROM THIS IGNORANT MAN!
