Patient Comments (7)
Holden, MA |
I found her perfunctory , as many do, though they simply call her rude and arrogant. I went through a battery of tests, some of which were out of range. Despite this, she essentially told me she'd take me off my meds and refused to prescribe the med I've used successfully for over 10 years for a condition that is lifelong. She is by the book and rigid and, her inability to discuss with the patient her method of treatment and reasoning makes her ineffective as a physician. Find a better Dr.

I found Dr. Waud to be a thorough and knowledgeable physician. She asked lots of question and explained everything that she wanted to investigate in a very understandable way. The staff was terrific & there was no wait time!
in Barre, MA |
Dr Waud is extremely thorough and follows through, even after the visit. She even called my pcp's office to request additional testing several weeks after my second appointment. She takes a personal interest but also clearly expects the patient to do so as well and expects compliance appropriately. Excellent care with no sugar coating. I trust this Dr completely and I have all but lost my faith in Dr's.
in Southborough, MA |
Dr. Waud is extremely thorough. Although she is businesslike, she is not rude. She is more than willing to answer any questions, and makes an effort to be sure that you understand what she is describing.
Atlanta, GA |
my first two appointments with her I felt she was rather abrupt but wanted to give her a chance. But my last visit she was downright rude. She might be knowledgeable but no manners.
Worcester, MA |
There is no likelihood that I would recommend Dr Waud. I did not feel confident in her care whatsoever. Her demeanor is short, she does not take the time to listen, and she was not accurate on information. Due to the possibility of cancer I expressed concern over her saying that there was no rush to remove my thyroid , her abrupt reply was, you don't die from thyroid cancer be it as it may, this was very unprofessional and not reassuring to a patient.
in Worcester, MA |
Dr. Waud is excellent, no-nonsense, and has an eye for details that other doctors I've had have missed. Of the six endocrinologists I've seen over the years, she's the best.
