Dr. Waggenspack appears to think that he is God's gift to modern medicine and told me that he is the best doctor in this area. I found him to be pompous and difficult to communicate with. I spent over an hour in his office and he was in the room no more than a few minutes. I would never recommend him. I suggest you find another doctor.

Love Dr Waggenspack! He’s thorough, explains diagnosis: treatment/options very well. He was very attentive when I had surgery (and throws in a bit of humor.). I am very happy with his services and staff. When I had questions they were ready to help. Thank you for a pleasant experience!

Dr. W.W. Was excellent. Another Dr. said pain meds and physical therapy were the only options. Dr. Waggenspack took an xray, showed me the damage and suggested surgery. He CHIPed away the damage and 9 mos. later, my shoulder is great. Thanks Doc. Sonny Anderson
