Dr. Waddle is kind and professional. I trust my health to him without reservations.
in Santa Cruz, CA |
I love Dr. Waddle! He has performed at least three surgeries on my abdomen. After a surgery in which he found something that should not be, he came bouncing into my recovery room, drawing diagrams on the white board of what he found and how he fixed it. His enthusiasm for my case was infectious (maybe the wrong word to use when talking about doctors!), and on top of it all, he was *so* friendly, approachable, reliable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone!

One of the best doctors I ever had working on me. He has with no daut saved my life and soon I might need him to use his amazing skills on a new health problem that I have and I can not see myself wanting to trust on a different surgan for that new issue that I have. I wish him a very long and healthy and happy life. We need doctors like him. SMART Down to earth, CARING AND SUCH A DARN AMAZING HUMAN.
