Easily the worst medical office staff I have seen in my 26 years as a health provider in Hawai?i. Phone calls returned weeks late, rudeness, zero personal accountability. Good luck.

I have a leg ulcer size 4by3 very painful and annoying , upon my initial visit and 3 times a week wound care his staff is outstanding and his treatment facility is meticulously clean and comfortable. Dr. Waterford himself is very professional and extremely good at patient relations. Having them treating me has been made this problem go from unbearable to manageable an I thank him and staff for the difference they have made helping me deal with this horrible wound. Mega Mahalo

Six months ago I had ablation for ugly varicose veins on both legs. My care with Dr. Waterford and his staff was off the charts. I felt cared about and expertly taken care of by all of them. I had NO pain post surgery!None! Six weeks k ate I began running again. The greatest testimony came two weeks ago...out if the mouth of my three year old granddaughter. She had her hand on my keg and Saud "Nina,your legs look young. They're beautiful!" She didn't kniw anything about my surgeries. Wow!Debbi
