Dr. Waldo has been the best doctor ever since I started being his patient. He makes me feel personal because he remembers my previous medical condition and he takes his time to listen to me to explain to him my illness. He truly cares about his patient and their need and explain step by step how he is going to treat my illness. He is competent, thorough and has passion in his practice. He makes me feel that I am in good hand and will feel better soon. His nurse Jessica is the best caring nurse that I have met. They are truly a profession team!! I would recommend them to everyone! They don't make doctor like Dr. Waldo anymore. I want him to be around forever for his patients.

Dr. Waldo has been my primary physician for over 30 years. He is excellent. He's saved my life due to his sharp diagnosing skills and relentless drive for effective treatments. He patiently explains everything and is a great listener. His care has enabled me to attain good health and enjoy my retirement. He's the best doctor I've ever seen and I appreciate his care.

I specially told the doctor about my concerns and he dismissed them. he insisted his choice of medication would stop my cough, allow me to sleep and that I would be able to attend an important meeting today. That didn't happen. I have been up all night coughing and I won't be able to give an important presentation. I have suffered with bronchitis my entire life. I wish he would have considered all the facts before thinking he new best how to treat me and ignore my concerns. I believe DDA doctors have metrics, handle times and other measurements that come before patient care. My primary doctor acts the same way and there's definitely a trend. I'm very disappointed.
