Patient Comments (6)
in Blue Ridge, VA |
Dr. Waldron has done 2 rotator cuff surgeries on me on each shoulder. He is the Best! Great surgeon, and bedside manner. Highly recommend him.
in Roanoke, VA |
Dr. Waldrop has provided assistance and medical explanation for two knee replacements. He is quick to get into the room, easy to talk with, explains the condition and the solution in terms I could understand and remember. I continue to recommend him to anyone I know having knee issues. I could ask for no one I'd rather have for orthopedic issues than him.
Salem, VA |
Dr. Waldrop has performed multiple surgeries on my wife and me. He's the best. However, his waiting room always has Fox News blasting, and anyone remotely educated will have a hard time sitting there.
Roanoke, VA |
Had knee surgery 3 years ago and am getting ready for another go with the other knee. I really like this doctor.
in Buchanan, VA |
Dr Waldrop is very compassionate for the patient who is suffering from orthopedic problems. He is a great surgeon who has done knee replacement surgery and in January 2016. He did a total hip replacement. He has a great bedside manner and is very understandable of ones sufferings and does everything to correct ones problem areas to relieve pain and help one to get back to normal health. I would highly recommend him to my family, and friends. He is an excellent doctor in my opinion.
