    He was very knowledgeable and had taken time to view my myelogram before our appointment. Of 3 surgeons interviewed, I felt Dr. Waldron had the best recommendation on how to proceed for a "fix" of my back problem. He will do my surgery next month.

    The provider was very rushed, and he did a poor job of listening to me. Even laughing when he thought I was telling a joke (I'm assuming), when in fact I was trying to tell him a time when I was in pain. Overall, I left feeling like he thought I was wasting his time and overreacting about my problem. He told me to just keep waiting and maybe the symptoms would go away. I asked how long I should wait before getting back to him, and he just said he didn't know. Not at all helpful. He did prescribe me some pain medication, which did help.
