    Dr Waldron is always kind and informative. I never have to wait very long, and it never feels rushed when it's my turn. I feel like I am in very good hands and trust that what he says is 100% accurate.

    my son had used Dr. Waldron before. I had had two previous back surgeries. I still was in bad shape after the second surgery. my son suggested Dr. Waldron, and I am very happy I decided to see him. so far this surgery seems "right". Dr. Waldron had to redo all that had been done previously. so far, so good!!! I really appreciate the way Dr. Waldron explained what he would do.

    Dr Waldron's primary concern was performing a surgery that would leave me in the best possible long-term situation. He took his time explaining my options. Surgery went off on schedule and went smoothly. I have been extremely pleased so far.
