The best combination of intelligence, skill, compassion and communication in a physician I’ve worked with and been treated by ( and I’ve seen a lot of physicians being a nurse for 35 years!). Recommend her highly

Love Dr. Waldron! She's a great listener and makes you feel understood. Always does a great job explaining and will even draw a little illustration to help you understand.

Dr. Waldron was so kind. I have dealt with an on going problem for a couple of years and I have had bad experisnces with other doctors. I called the office and explained my problem with tears, the nurse talked to Dr. Waldron and she fit me it that day. She listened and she sat with me after the proceedure was done. She said I could stay as long as I wanted it that would make me feel better and to open the door and call them if I had any more quest I am so glad I went there.

Dr. Waldron is what I wish every doctor would be. She was thorough during the examination and made sure I was comfortable. She took the time to explain all my options and even draw a diagram for my understanding. In the end, she recommended that I give it more time to heal instead of surgery. Having had this problem twice before the doctors always want to do surgery first. Not, Dr. Waldron. My issue has since cleared up (without surgery this time). I just wish more doctors where like her.

Dr Waldron is hands down the best doctor I have seen for any reason. I am a nurse so I am around many doctors. She listens, is very knowledge and puts you at ease. I feel she aggressively treats my symptoms but also cares about my well being.

The day was September 7, 2013. I was struggling to heal from a recent hysterectomy and did not know that my colon had ruptured. My organs were shutting down and I was suffering from septic shock. Dr. Waldron was the physician on call in the emergency room at St. Mark's Hospital that evening. Her quick diagnosis and emergency surgery saved my life. Dr. Waldron was so intuitive to my needs. Her love and genuine concern for her patients rises above and beyond the call of an ordinary surgeon.

I saw jill and found her to be pleasant and delightful personally however I would NOT recommend seeing her because i had a thrombolytic hemorrhoid removed she told me it wont bleed much or run down your leg it did and scared the crap out of me. She told me the pain will be less then before the procedure it was more painful. She told me it would not reoccur it did. She told me you wont need topical lidocaine and shes right there i needed a full on oral pain med. She didn't imform /what to expect
