in Portland, OR |
Dr. Waldman was over an hour and forty minutes behind, didn't even mention it let alone apologize. He showed obvious signs of frustration towards my elderly client not being able to immediately react to his direction during the exam. Overall he was very cold, disinterested, and just flat out not a nice person.

Dr. Waldman is in my opinion a superb ophthalmologist. He is prompt, respectful, and easy to talk to. I always feel well cared for. I am very thankful for his services.
