    I didn\'t feel like I had any answers to my questions. I feel as though brushed off like what I\'m going through is not a problem. I was advised to basically take medication for headaches which is a bandaid for my problem. All the Doctor had to say was he "wasn\'t impressed" I did not visit And waist my money and insurance to impress anyone. Doctor Waldron should show more empathy and spend more than 5 minutes with his patients. The best Doctor in the world would not be able to take care of a Patient in 5 minutes.

    I feel that ultimately the service to be provided will answer questions about the condition presented. The doctor was kind and knowledgeable. But I fail to see the need to be referred to a neurosurgeon for this issue. Seems like overkill, if you will excuse the expression.

    I came for a consultation regarding changes in a pre existing venous anomaly. Dr. Waldron explained the changes in the anomaly, went over the MRI images with me, and gave a clear recommendation.
