Dr. Waxler is also Certified by the National Board of Medical Examiners.

Dr. Waxler was raised in Waycross, GA and Ardmore, PA. He earned his undergraduate degree with honors in biochemistry at Trinity College, Hartford, CT. He later received his medical degree at University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA. His postgraduate training was at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA as a Medical Intern/Resident and at Penn State – Hershey Medical Center, Hershey, PA as a Cardiology Fellow.

The thing I like most about cardiology is that, as opposed to many other medical specialties, the vast majority of cardiology conditions are correctable, and the vast majority of patients are able to get significant improvement from our treatment.

I was inspired to become a cardiologist by my late father who was a cardiologist; I am following in his footsteps.

Dr. Waxler and his wife have three children. His hobbies include tennis, gardening, photography, soccer, “Ultimate” Frisbee, and his family.
