Good , very competent, and professional Doctor. The kind everyone is looking for. Fixed me up right away A++

I have had the privilege of being a patient of Dr. Waldstreicher for over 20 years. One could not ask for a doctor more knowledgeable, compassionate or cutting edge who truly cares for his patients. I cannot imagine having anyone else I would trust as completely to be responsible for my care, and unhesitatingly recommend him wholeheartedly -- he is most deserving!

I would recommend Dr. Waldstreicher to anyone needing the services of a Gastroenterologist. He is caring, compassionate, professional and takes as much time as necessary after a procedure to explain his findings and diagnosis. I have been his patient for 15 years and if it were not for Dr. Waldstreicher, I most likely would not be writing this recommendation. 'Nuff' said. If you are at risk for colon disease (for whatever reason) make a call to Dr. Waldstreicher. You won't be sorry. D.R.R.

Dr. Waldstreicher took the time, sat with me, and explained with pictures how sometimes polyps are missed, which was a major concern since it happened to a friend who had colonoscopy in NYC. Dr. Waldstreicher is not only brilliant but explains everything so it's easy to understand, plus he has the BEST bedside manner, and discusses results when you're awake after the procedure, then a personal phone call after pathology. His surgical staff were so nice and made me extremely comfortable too!

I am in the healthcare industry so finding a good doctor for person issues is very important. I want a great diagnostician with great bedside manners who will give me personal service and answer all my questions. Dr. Waldstreicher is such a doctor specializing in GI. I highly recommend him. He is wonderful very caring, and takes time to explain things on your level. I wish there were more doctors like him

Dr. Waldstreicher is by far one of the most knowledgeable and intelligent doctors I have come across. He is extremely patient and very kind each and every time. I absolutely adore him!
Dr Waldstreicher is very thorough and took time to explain everything about my condition, his recommendation for treatment, and what I could expect going forward. He is easy to speak with and was responsive to my questions.
