About This Business

Charles J. Waisbren, M.D. runs an independent, traditional medical practice. He doesn’t work in a big clinic with large waiting rooms, ever-changing staff or a huge billing department. He doesn’t utilize physician assistants or nurse practitioners, and because he is independent, he can refer to the best specialists and best hospitals.

Dr. Waisbren combines old school service with cutting edge medical attention. He cares deeply about his patients, gets them well, responds to their needs and answers their questions. His methodology is to focus on patients as individuals; not a collection of symptoms. He handles everything from preventative medicine to treatment of acute and chronic conditions. He offers same day or next day appointments with online scheduling and little or no wait times. He understands that patients are busy and that is why he has built a practice designed to run efficiently.

Dr. Waisbren’s office is in a “state of the art” building with ample parking, a full office laboratory, on location radiology, CT and MRI services, as well as an on location physical therapy department and full service pharmacy. Patients are able to “private message” with Dr. Waisbren on Facebook and read his tri-weekly posts there. Dr. Waisbren provides service like it used to be, medical care how it ought to be; patient oriented and physician guided.

Dr. Waisbren accepts most major insurance plans including UnitedHealthcare.

I have been a patient of Dr. Charles Waisbren for the past 20 years. He always greets me with a hand shake and a smile. He is thorough with his exams and cares very much about keeping his patients healthy. In emergencies Dr. Waisbren always makes time for me to see him immediately. He affords each of his patients time to ask and answer questions, without making you feel that you are working against the clock. The doctor's staff works diligently to ensure future appointments are booked before you leave the office -- with a friendly follow-up reminder card mailed at least one week before the appointment.

I appreciate the doctor always taking time to discuss any concerns and/or questions I might have.

Like all other doctor's offices, patients must be prepared to wait beyond their scheduled appointment to see the doctor. Dr. Waisbren's wait time is always less than 1/2 hour.

He is definitely worth waiting for!

Dr. is always pleasant, funny and patient. I always leave the office feeling confident things are going to be ok.
Appreciate doctor's kind attention to me and detail. His "plain talk" is most appreciative and easy to understand. Knows his medications and recommends better alternatives. Stays updated on all new meds available.
Dr. Waisbren brings extraordinary people skills to his treatment and counseling of patients.

I believe that the combination leads to better outcomes for patients such as myself.
What can I say except that Old Doc Charlie has been taking care of me for a very long time now and he is always up to date on what's going on.
I recommend this man to anybody that has a fast paced life that does not have the time to sit in a waiting room for somebody to get to them.

He is an outstanding doctor and person.

I wish all physicians were as responsive and professional as Dr. Waisbren.
I have been a patient of Dr. Waisbren for about 30 years now. He's professional but friendly. If he has something to say, he doesn't sugar coat it, he gives it to you straight. He keeps track of my numbers and let's me know when I've done well, just as he will let me know when I haven't done so well. He is that way because he cares.
