Dr. Waller is great. He's not over treating or under treating me and has never discounted my symptoms. I'm probably one of his younger patients and I appreciate his honesty and willingness to keep me active without over medicating.

Dr. Waller is a wonderful doctor. I have been with him almost since he began practicing in Houston. He is kind, considerate, and up-to-date. He goes beyond to take wonderful care of his patients. I wouldn't go to anyone else.
