Care Philosophy

I have been caring for feet since the late 1980's and have gained valuable insight into the unique needs of my patients. I take into account not only the foot problem but the causes and take into consideration my patients' lifestyles and family/work responsibilities. Though I am a board certified foot surgeon, I always look for the least invasive treatments to keep you on your feet. The human body is meant to heal itself and as a physician I strive to assist this miracle. We are a team.

I made an appointment with Dr. Waldman due to heel, ankle and Achilles pain. Dr. Waldman was the consummate professional. very knowledgeable, thorough and trustworthy. He quickly diagnosed my issue as "Plantar Fasciitis" and recommended stretching exercises and inserts for my shoes. I highly recommend Dr. Waldman.

Dr. Waldman and his staff are excellent. They all were professional, personal, attentive, friendly and caring. I was seen for 5 different visits across a one year period and the service was always the same. I was very pleased with his care and the successful outcome of the treatment.

Dr. Waldman offered some great treatment options for my plantar fasciitis. He and his staff were very helpful and easily accessible. The atmosphere was very comfortable and friendly. Although I hope I never have to deal with this condition again, I would return and recommend this doctor and facility without hesitation. Thanks so much for your kindness and patience.

I had a very bad ingrown toenail. I called and was given an appointment the next morning. The staff was very professional. They and Dr. Waldman answered all my questions regarding the procedure. He did an excellent job. I would recommend him.
in Candler, NC |
I don't even refer to him as doctor with 3 bad surgeries he performed on my feet. do NOT let him do surgery on you. He maybe ok for nail fungus but his surgical skill is horrible. Waldman put ankle implants in both ankles saying I needed them, I just wanted bunions removed, I think how dumb could I have been. for 3 yrs Ive worked so very little & I support myself but the worst this has changed my life for ever!!
