Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Waldman "I make the maximum effort to give the best care to every patient that I encounter.

I am one of the few orthopaedic surgeons in America who has passed the certifying examination four times==one mandatory in 1984, and three voluntary in 1993, 2001, and 2009.

I feel that a doctor who keeps up to date in his or her field is best qualified to give you the care you deserve. Education can never stop, when you are trusted with the lives and limbs of others. 

Always make sure that your surgeon is board-certified !!"
