I have been a patient of Dr. Waran since 2002. I feel he is compassionate, caring, and is straight forward. He has delivered all my babies. He has good bedside manners. I love him and his staff.

I saw Dr. Waran today and he was very condescending. I do not go in to the doctor often and he treated me as though i was over reacting by coming in. He asked why I haven't taken pain medicine if I was in pain. I feel as though he was implying I'm not in pain. I don't take medication because I am breastfeeding and I try hard not to take medication if I can help it. Dr. Waran's manner of talking with me today was exactly the problem many patients have with their physicians, I felt talked down too

Dr. Waran was the coldest Doctor I have ever encountered. I never felt any compassion from him at all. He doesn't give straightforward answers and doesn't take the time to really listen. He is more of a dictatator when it comes to patient care and doesn't really consider what the patient wants. I would not recommend him to my worst enemy. However his staff deserves 5 stars across the board. The most caring nurses and assistants. He could learn from them.

He was very cold and made me feel as if I was an inconvenience for him to see me. I am so thankful he is not my Dr. and hope I never have to deal with him on call when I am back in the hospital.
