Totally impressed with his credentials and his willingness to discuss what to expect in surgery. I highly recommend him. he also did not rush his time with me and answered every question I had, and did so patiently.

Dr. Waldron performed a thrombectomy on my dad in the ER and saved by dad from becoming a vegetable after his second stroke. My dad is doing well and has regained all his faculties. Thank you, Dr. Waldron - you are my hero.
