Highlights of Dr. Waller's residency included a six-month rotation through the Harvard system's Boston Children's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts for pediatric orthopaedic surgery; a rotation through The Elmhurst Hospital Medical Center in Queens, New York for orthopaedic trauma; and rotations through The Mt. Sinai Medical Center and The Hospital for Joint Diseases in New York City for orthopaedic oncology.

He takes his time with his patients, he's very informative, and a great surgeon you can't even tell I had surgery on my hand, and next week having my knee surgery done. I like a dr who is there to inform, treat, and advise, not trying to be my buddy, he's professional that's what I look for in a dr.

Waller performed emergency surgery. I asked questions about my son's condition and why he was exp. things in the hospital the nursing staff indicated was unusual. When we went to Waller's office he told me that the office had BETS that I would call over the weekend! When asked about his stitches I was asked IF I WAS GOING TO MEDICAL SCHOOL! This doctor doesn't like to be asked questions. Any doctor intimidated by questions shouldn't be seen. I transferred to another group immediately.
