Dr Wasserman is the best of the best! He saved my life. I was at the lowest point in my life before I came to his practice as a patient. Seven years later and I am now working full time, enjoying my family and most importantly, love myself again. He is creative and truly cares what is best for his patients. I have been to many doctors and hospitals in my life and have never found anyone in the entire field of medicine who truly listens to patients with chronic pain issues the way Dr Wasserman does. My first appointment with him lasted over 3 hours if that says anything. Thanks Doc for all you have done for me and my family. We are truly blessed to have you in our lives.

I've been seeing Dr Wasserman for 20 years. He's aided me in getting off the opiate train which always demands more. I've been on pain meds most my life. With the new prescription the pain is kept at a livable level and I'm not requiring any higher doses. I hope he can be a service to you.

When I met Dr. Magical Wasserman, I was completely defeated by the medical system. My vagus nerve was damaged in two gastric stomach wrap surgeries back in ‘94 and ‘95. I had chronic pain since then, taking me out of school, eventually dropping out of college, and with enormous heartbreak, stopped singing because of the tearing of scar tissue around my diaphragm. Throughout the years of pain, going on and off pain medications when I couldn’t stand the pain, I became addicted. I would go in and out of the 12 step program, eventually finding a spiritual belief system that helped me grow and focus on healing the mental/spiritual/emotional/physical and etheric bodies. Still, after 15 years of workshops, energy healing activations, becoming an ordained minister, teaching healing courses to others and being focused on healing my body, I was still unable to handle the pain from my vagus nerve (which felt like having a heart attack ALL the TIME), and continued to get severely wounded after a 2016 car accident. I was put on two very strong pain meds, along with others in this cocktail, causing my life to come to a standstill. I searched and searched for a doctor who understood the pain originating from my vagal nerve. FINALLY, I met Dr. Wasserman. Immediately I knew I was guided to someone that could SEE me and help. Suboxone has saved my life, literally. I can now be a strong, confident, loving and patient parent to my three children. I’m two years in my transition into a man, so feeling better is helping me in infinite ways interacting with the world compassionately as a Transman. Dr. Wasserman goes above, and beyond, with a dash of “and then some” with all of his patients. I have not met any doctor that is truly aware on deeper levels so he can intuitively pick up on the actual bodily issues that are present. He goes to the source. This is very important. Most doctors use their knowledge to mask the pain and provide a bandaid solution, which is just not useful and a huge issue in the medical field. This doctor is magic. He listens intently, holds a space of compassion and understanding, calls you out on any BS with love, and immediately points out source pain that is dealt with in a very short amount of time. If you want, like really really want a better quality of life, he will get you there. I am beyond grateful to work with him!!!!

Dr. Justin Wasserman is one of the best physician’s I’ve ever encountered – and after twenty-plus years of constant pain & fatigue, I’ve been to more than my share. Dr. Wasserman is incredibly kind, caring, compassionate and dedicated to his patients’ well-being. He spends all the time you need, asking key questions and taking notes. Then he works on tailoring a treatment plan that encompasses the whole patient, using traditional, nutritional and alternative therapies. His knowledge of pharmacology is unsurpassed. He is constantly learning and seeking new ways to address the complex puzzle that is the chronic pain patient. He is at the forefront of cutting-edge treatments, but remains methodical and measured in their use. He has the brain of an academician, with an encyclopedic knowledge of pharmacology and supplements. And he has the heart of a compassionate, old-school family doctor, who knows his patients and their lives. On top of all of that, he respects his patients’ knowledge of their own body and experience. I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to have a doctor listen and believe you! Without Dr. Wasserman’s care, I would still be mostly bedridden and house-bound, barely able to walk, sleep or function. He has given me a much greater quality of life. [*Shout out to his amazing admin Denise. She is a phenomenal and key part of the team]

I have been a patient of Dr. Wasserman for over 20 years. It took some time for us to get the right combination of medications to ease my pain where I can have a good quality of life now. He has always listened to my concerns, and my husband's, and always explained his rationale for any change in my meds. I love the morning receptionist, Beeta (sorry I'm not sure how to spell her name). It is nice having someone in the office to greet one as they arrive for their appointment and I enjoy our conversations while waiting for my appointment. I have referred others to Dr. Wasserman and will continue to do so.
