Dr. Waldman is a professional, intelligent, honest, and kind doctor. My experiences with him and his staff were excellent. He started treatment with the most affordable and simple option, saving me time and money. Treatment was affordable, painless, and fast. After three visits, my treatments were complete. Dr. Waldman is informative and performs excellent patient education. I highly recommend Dr. Waldman and his staff. If you are looking for the best Podiatrist, then you need to call and schedule an appointment with him!

Dr. Waldman is a great and resourceful specialist with a broad range of knowledge in regards to podiatry. He and his staff are very friendly, professional, and accommodating. I appreciate the honest feedback and no-nonsense medical opinion that I've received from Dr. Waldman over the years for a variety of foot issues that, as an active athlete, I've been dealing with on intermittent basis. I'd highly recommend his services. Thank you, Blue Ridge Foot Team!

I left his office feeling confused and like I'd been hustled. I came in to have a sprained ankle looked at, and was told I had a minor fracture. No care instructions were given to me, and I was hurried off for cold laser treatments, the cost of which was barely mentioned. Before I had a chance to think, they had me in the chair. I brought up concerns about the cost, and the nurse left and came back and said I could do just half of the treatments he originally recommended. I tried asking her how to care for the fracture, and she only gave me reccomendations on what to eat? As I saw Dr. Waldman when I was leaving, I tried asking more questions and his answers seemed deliberately unhelpful. My GP has since told me the laser treatments are not standard care for an ankle fracture. I tried contacting the office about my questions, and was told I could make another appt "to get on the same page" as Dr. Waldman. I feel like it shouldn't be this hard to get basic care instructions.

I can't attest to his skill as a doctor, however, when you make an appointment and have multiple insurances they'll verify what insurance/s you have but don't bother telling you if they don't accept one of them until after you're there, filled out the paper work, given your credit or bank card number and then you'll be informed. I also had apparently been given an appointment after they received my referral but wasn't told until I called and it just so happened to be the next day. So I rearranged my schedule anxious to relieve the excruciating pain and made the long drive in the heat just to have my time wasted. So he may very well be an okay doctor but make sure you ask if they accept all your insurances when they verify what you have.

I’m extremely satisfied with my experience for bunion surgery with Dr. Waldman & his whole office staff. The office runs very efficiently with a caring touch, I liked it was small & personal, answered all questions. Finance & administration was easy too. The surgery on my foot was precision & the experience at the outpatient center was so smooth, professional, caring. The healing process has been really good hardly any post-op pain. Excellent service, excellent work, excellent bed-side manner.

I made an appointment with Dr. Waldman due to heel, ankle and Achilles pain. Dr. Waldman was the consummate professional. very knowledgeable, thorough and trustworthy. He quickly diagnosed my issue as "Plantar Fasciitis" and recommended stretching exercises and inserts for my shoes. I highly recommend Dr. Waldman.

Dr. Waldman and his staff are excellent. They all were professional, personal, attentive, friendly and caring. I was seen for 5 different visits across a one year period and the service was always the same. I was very pleased with his care and the successful outcome of the treatment.

Dr. Waldman offered some great treatment options for my plantar fasciitis. He and his staff were very helpful and easily accessible. The atmosphere was very comfortable and friendly. Although I hope I never have to deal with this condition again, I would return and recommend this doctor and facility without hesitation. Thanks so much for your kindness and patience.

I don't even refer to him as doctor with 3 bad surgeries he performed on my feet. do NOT let him do surgery on you. He maybe ok for nail fungus but his surgical skill is horrible. Waldman put ankle implants in both ankles saying I needed them, I just wanted bunions removed, I think how dumb could I have been. for 3 yrs Ive worked so very little & I support myself but the worst this has changed my life for ever!!
