Dr. Washer

Dr. Washer and David Bond (NP) gave excellent care and good explanations of care. Everything they said would happen during my time with them did happen. They eased my concerns and reduced my fears. I was extremely happy with my result and I am in my final days of recovery brace free.

Quality of Service aong with expertise

I found that DR. Wascher to be one of the most thorough Doctors I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He explained the procedure in great detail from beginning to end. Something both my wife and I greatly appreciated. I learned so much about what was going to happen I was totally comfortable with the procedure that he was going to preform.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Wascher and his PA David! After 20+ years trying to be heard and helped I found these amazing and kind professionals! In all sincerity, they saved my life!!! They were NEVER condescending or rude! I have had too much of that from other "specialists"! Other Doctors could learn a thing or two from these brilliant people! Outstanding quality of care by far!!!

Full Review Rating Breakdown

Dr. Wascher and his staff are simply remarkable. I was in pain caused by my L4 and L5 disc had been blown. He assured me about the procedure and made it less scary. They made my family also feel comfortable. After surgery they continued their great care of me. They all truly care about their patients and getting them back to the lifestyle their patients want and the quality of life they had experienced before the injury. Highly recommend Dr. Wascher.
