September he performed sinus surgery w/out a CT scan, in office with a local. It was torture!!! Dr. Wazen told me that he would be able to perform the same surgery as in hospital. This was NOT the case! It was painful and he didn't solve any of my sinus problems. This March he advised me that I needed more surgery and a CT scan was now needed, but I was to pay all of my co pay's up front and deductibles as well. He also considers himself to be somewhat of an allergist, he is NOT an allergist, being told I had candida, he put me on nyastatin for candida, but gave me the swish and swallow which was the WRONG prescription. I never had thrush and he knew this, finally one of his nurses realized I was on the incorrect drug (after I had spent weeks on the candida cleanse diet) that I was feeding the candida with the liquid nystatin. I went to USF, had the BEST doctor there, full sinus surgery with a great amount of success, my new doctor went where Dr. Wazen refused to go with the sinus surgery.
Stay away from the Silverstein Institute, they caused me more harm than they did good. I had even told him in March 2012, I was suicidal due to the fact that I no longer could breath and was worse than I had ever been. My CT scan from another Dr showed this and the doctor at USF was amazed at the CT scan and also during the surgery, the polyps were in massive amounts.
Dr Wazen made his money off of me for the last time. They also automatically ordered allergy shots that I never took and my insurance company was billed and they did pay. I refused to pay for any of the last surgery or allergy meds they made and when they sent it to collections, they added 70.00 additional dollars to the bill.
Bad BAD very BAD practice. I wish I could forget they even existed!

Dr. Wazen has been my doctor for 6 years..I don't understand some of these reviews because I find him very thorough and extremely caring. He is very knowledgeable and makes you feel at ease. I would definitely recommend him.

The uncaring attitude displayed come through start to finish, in very detail. Will not take the time to explain anything unless you question him. Long waits, rude staff, and even denies he says thing aftre he clearly did. The whole place has a reputation for being a factory, and some in town even say
some tests and procedures are unnecessary. Life is too short to deal with it
all.

Pros: published

Cons: Uncaring attitude, poor care

.

Avoid this guy at all costs. If he can't handle the surgery, or his surgery fails, he will send you 80 miles away to USF ENT in Tampa. Apparently, he had a falling out at Florida Ear and Sinus a few years ago and would selfishly rather send his old patients 80 miles away for inferior treatment at a hack university medical school than to highly experienced doctors at Florida Ear and Sinus which is right in downtown Sarasota. USF butchered my ear and 7 months later I ended up having Dr. Silverstein at Florida Ear and Sinus remove a huge (mega) cholesteatoma that the USF ENT either caused or missed per my educated opinion. If I would have known what I know now, I would have gone right to Dr Silverstein at the beginning. I only write here so that other's might learn vicariously through my experience. 100% my own experience and opinion.

Pros: Receptionist was very nice

Cons: Puts his pride above the best interests of his patients

.

This dr has no bedside manner whatsoever. It is impossible to call and reach him and when messages are left for him to call back, his secretary or nurse calls you. Not proactive in getting test results or calling patients with those results.
