The following comments were written by actual patients of Dr. Waldrep ...
Dr. Waldrep is a fabulous surgeon, he also is very personable which is an unusual combo in my experience. He truly puts patient care first.
It's been a little over 7 months since my surgery, and I still feel the same way about Dr. Waldrep as I did when I first met him … He's professional, caring, thorough, and very competent. Dr. Waldrep takes the time to go over not only the benefits of surgery, but a realistic look at what is involved, both during the surgery itself as well as the aftercare, including the risks. Although I had to wait to see him, it was worth it to know that he would take whatever time was needed to answer my questions. I received ample information, both verbally and in written form, and always felt that if I had any questions at all, he would honestly answer them for me. From my research as well as my experience it is apparent that Dr. Waldrep is a highly skilled surgeon, and I feel fortunate to have been able to have him oversee my care.
Dr. Waldrep was funny and witty. He was extremely intelligent about the obesity fight. He is excellent. I would rate him a 20/20 very good. I would have to say surgical competence and then bedside manner and he has all of the above and then some.
Even after all these years he still answers my panicky questions... No complaints... I tell everyone it was the best thing I ever did for myself!
My first impression of Dr. Waldrep was that he was a confident man who thoroughly enjoyed his work and could bring humor and compassion to the table. I knew immediately that he would be the person to do my surgery. Meeting him one on one only served to strengthen and reinforce my original opinions. I honestly can't imagine a better place or a better team to be with on this truly life-changing journey.
My first impression of Dr. Waldrep was based upon everything else I had read about him. His credentials, experience, and all the glowing reports of his expertise won me over. After doing much research, I made up my mind that if I was going to trust anyone… Dr. Waldrep would be the guy. In addition to being a top rate surgeon, with a wonderful bedside manner, Donald Waldrep is also very cute! He seemed a little shy, but has a quiet sense of humor, and kind eyes. He clearly knows his stuff! In between the jokes and humor, I could see a man who genuinely cares about what he does.
Dr. Waldrep is a wonderful-highly skilled surgeon. I consider him the best in California. He performed my surgery with no complications, I highly recommend him to anyone!
First time I met Dr. Waldrep, I knew he was the surgeon for me. He was kind, shy, but with a great sense of humor. He didn't make me feel uncomfortable about my weight and I knew he was there to help me through the process. I am so grateful to have had Dr. Waldrep as my surgeon. He changed and possibly saved my life.
My pre-op care was great. My one on one with Dr. Waldrep was great. He helped me make decisions.
SO much more educated and confident than the other surgeon I met with. I don't think the other surgeon is bad, it's just that Dr. Waldrep really seems to know his stuff. He is so nice and he took all the time I needed to answer all of my questions. I had several pages of questions written down! Dr. Waldrep worked hard during my surgery to cut down my adhesions so that they could complete the surgery via Lap instead of open and I really appreciate that!
1st Impression: Real life McDreamy. Impression over time: Still McDreamy, but a little goofy too. Like least: NOTHING; I LOVE Dr. Waldrep! Future patients should know: He is a TALL, SKINNY man, but one who truly understands what we're going through! Rate him overall: 10+ Both surgical competence & bedside manner are important, and Dr. Waldrep has plenty of both!
Dr. Waldrep seems to be a very grounded person with realistic expectations. He seems to honestly understand the problem of obesity and treats his patients with humor as well as sensitivity… he very patiently answered all of my questions and never made me feel like he had other things to do. Sailed through surgery. I would highly recommend his office!
My first impression of Dr. Waldrep is that he is very much a kind and caring person. Doesn't seem judgmental at all.
If you pick anyone pick Waldrep… the best. I wouldn't have picked anyone else. Great bedside manner.
Dr. Waldrep and his staff are extremely professional and well-organized for the most part. Dr. Waldrep is very relaxed and easy to talk to. He has a bit of a dry sense of humor, which I love, and is also a bit silly as well. But, always professional. I think that a sense of humor is essential when in a doctor/patient relationship, as it takes the formalness out of the situation and makes it easier to feel free to talk openly with those providing care to you. Dr. Waldrep is a fabulous surgeon with an impeccable record of successes, and an amazingly low rate of complications. His bedside manner is easy going and comfortable. I don't have a single complaint about the care that he or his staff have provided for me.
I don't think there is anything that I don't like about Dr. Waldrep.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Waldrep. He really knows his stuff and wants to make sure every patient has the best experience possible.
Please read my blog for my information on Dr. Waldrep. He is fantastic! I could go on forever. The biggest and more important thing for me is that, after meeting him, he COMPLETELY erased any fears I had. I knew that he wanted me to be successful as badly as I wanted it for myself. He honestly gave me such peace about it all. Dr. Waldrep is a very thorough surgeon, and quite a perfectionist (which is a GREAT quality in a surgeon). I found him to be extremely honest and upfront with me. I definitely felt a personal connection with him. That's what so great about him, I think all his patients do, and it's sincere on his part, you can feel it. Bottom line: his brilliance and character make him FAR more attractive than his pretty face. If you have a choice in surgeons, I say GO WITH WALDREP!!
Overall I would say I had a GREAT experience with Dr. Waldrep. After the initial consultation, any concerns were relieved. He was very personable and extremely knowledgeable.
Dr. Waldrep is a great Doctor, he is very personable, and really cares about his patients. Dr. Waldrep’s office will do anything to help you get through you weight loss journey. Dr. Waldrep wants all his patients to follow the aftercare instructions and is always available if you need something. Dr. Waldrep explains the surgery and risk, so you can ask as many questions as you might have. He is awesome.
I love the staff and Dr Waldrep. They answered all of my questions and I never felt like just a number. This was the first doctor I have ever been to that I did not find myself uncomfortable in front of. My surgery went perfect! The staff was wonderful and Dr. Waldrep was fantastic! I had the best experience.
Dr. Waldrep has an excellent reputation. He possesses the nice combination of being professional and human at the same time. Dr. Waldrep was referred to me by a primary care doctor who had her surgery by Dr. Waldrep just a couple of years ago, so I figured he must be pretty good! After surgery, I was even more impressed with Dr. Waldrep. The nurses in the hospital and other patients have only the highest esteem for his surgical competence and professionalism.
He's awesome! Very caring and understanding, and he has a great bedside manner, aside from the fact he is a wonderfully skilled surgeon. I fully trust him with my life.
I had originally heard that he was an awesome surgeon that was not only skilled but had a great bedside manner as well. This was all very true. He was a very capable surgeon, I did not have any complications at all from the surgery. He was very pleasant before and after surgery.
I found Dr. Waldrep to be very easygoing, friendly and receptive. The information he presented was extensive, factual, easy to understand and there were plenty of opportunities for questions and answers. Dr. Waldrep is very easy to talk to and maintains a good sense of humor to make the patient feel at ease. You are always treated with the utmost courtesy and kindness. Dr. Waldrep is honest with the risks of any type of surgery. I found him to be very thorough with your medical history and very open and receptive to any concerns you may have. I feel that I made the best choice for myself and am extremely happy with my entire surgical experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Waldrep's practice to anyone! I feel like I received the best health care possible.
Well - met with Dr. Waldrep one on one with my husband and all I can say is thank God for this man. He was very knowledgeable and was very attentive towards our questions and concerns. Dr. Waldrep said that really the success with this procedure will lie mainly in the aftercare and following the rules. I would rate him an 11 out of 10. I believe that both competency and bedside manner are equally important, one without the other would not be a success, and so far I believe Dr. Waldrep has portrayed both.
Dr. Waldrep is awesome!
Dr. Waldrep solved any problems I had 2 weeks before I knew I had it!
Dr. Waldrep - I have never been so impressed with the efficiency and caring nature of my treatment. The surgery itself was textbook, and I was out of the hospital in a day and have had no complications, not even nausea! I attribute that to the skilled hands of my doctors. I highly recommend Dr. Waldrep!
Dr. Waldrep, warm and very bright! Dr. Waldrep has a GREAT sense of humor & a GREAT bedside manner. He made me & my family feel very comfortable about everything. It was GREAT! I feel very lucky to have him as my surgeon!
From the first time I met Dr. Waldrep, I felt comfortable with him, and it just reconfirmed my decision that this surgery is the right thing for me. I had every confidence in Dr. Waldrep. I highly recommend.
If your surgeon is Dr. Donald Waldrep, you are in the best hands; professional, kind, fun and knows what the hell he's doing! Dr. Waldrep never rushes you when you have an appointment. You're not in and out like most doctors. I have never felt so at home in a doctor's office as I have felt in Dr. Waldrep’s office. I look forward to seeing him because I know I am in good hands and its going to be an uplifting visit! Dr. Waldrep tells you everything there is to know about the procedure you choose. He gives you the good and the bad in detail. They really made me feel comfortable. I give Dr. Waldrep a standing ovation!
Dr. Waldrep is a charming extremely experienced Bariatric surgeon who has performed over 1000’s of surgeries. I found him to be very thorough in both my medical and personal history; friendly and always smiling and uplifting. I would rate an A+ and would recommend anyone thinking about surgery to meet with Dr. Waldrep to gain confidence and all the necessary info needed to move forward. His surgical and professional competence are impeccable!!
I am very impressed by the program that Dr. Waldrep has in place. He is knowledgeable and shares the information in an easy to understand manner. He has an excellent track record.
My first impression of Dr. Waldrep was very favorable. He is an amazing physician who sincerely cares about the each of his patients. Office staff is professional and very caring. Dr. W. is very busy and so it is difficult to see him. If I were to rate Dr. W. from 1-10 I'd have to give him a 12, he's that good! His surgical competence is there, bedside manner too. I had to pay a large sum of money out of my own pocket -- I'd do it all over again. This surgery isn't one to be taken lightly and I feel the best surgeon is important.
He was very compassionate, sincere, qualified. I would trust my own relatives to have surgery with him. My impression has never changed about him!!! He was very sensitive and caring person, and was very informative on the risk, but he felt I would have very little problems with surgery. He is the best in my book. EXCELLENT.
Dr. Waldrep is awesome. A great doctor and a really great patient-person.
My first impression of Dr. Waldrep was confidence with a good sense of humor. I was convinced he was the right surgeon for me. You are more than a patient. I would rate Dr. Waldrep to be the best. I would not have anyone else do my surgery.
My first impression of Dr. Waldrep was one of great relief. He did not judge me and that was great, he didn’t make me feel like it was all my fault I was fat. Dr. Waldrep is helping someone else achieve a wonderful “Tool” for an awesome new life. The whole package is wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Waldrep. I would rate Dr. Waldrep a BIG 10. I would do this all over again today!!!!!
What a delightful gentleman! He had us laughing so hard, my friend (who accompanied me was 4 days postop) nearly had to leave she couldn't stop laughing so hard.
Dr. Waldrep is amazing! They all take such wonderful care of their patients. I am so fortunate that he performed the surgery. I had no complications.
Dr. Waldrep was the principle reason I decided to proceed with surgery. My impression with Dr. Waldrep improved at each visit. Dr. Waldrep's careful communications was thorough. He listened and responded in kind. I recommend Dr. Waldrep's skills … I thank God for the contact we had and the fact he performed my surgery.
Dr. Waldrep was very informative and nice and funny from the first time I met him. His bed side manner is awesome and the concern and care I have been shown by him makes me feel like the only patient he has. I know I am not but he is awesome!!
Dana Dr. Waldrep is very calming (and very handsome!) and extremely knowledgeable. He has never let me down! He is very thorough. He is very blunt, to the point and holds nothing back. I would have the surgery done over and over only if Dr. Waldrep was the one taking care of me. Fantastic!
I was very impressed by him and his humor. He really cares about his patients.
I loved Dr. Waldrep.
I was thoroughly impressed with Dr. Waldrep's expertise and his sincere understanding about the challenges people face. He was pleasant, had a great sense of humor and certainly instilled trust in his abilities. I feel Dr. Waldrep is the best surgeon for this surgery because of his excellent stats and his caring personality.
Dr. Waldrep met my criteria for a surgeon easily. He is articulate, funny, personable, compassionate and a great surgeon. He is trained in trauma and I wanted to know if I "got in trouble" on the table he was capable of handling it. I would rate him a 10/10. I think both surgical competence and bedside manner are both equally important and Dr. Waldrep met both.
Dr. Waldrep is very cool people. I appreciate the fact that he takes his time with his patients to answer all their questions, even if it makes him run late for his next appointment.
Very impressed with his knowledge and understanding of obesity and what surgery means to so many people. Very caring and very funny personality. One can't help feeling comfortable around him. At the consult, we went over my history, what to expect for surgery and in the future. He stayed to answer all my questions, without me feeling rushed out the door. He stresses that this surgery is a "tool" to help in the weight loss road and this tool he can give us. Surgical competence is most important to me, and Dr. Waldrep has a very good history. His great bedside manner is a special bonus!!! I give Dr. a 10 out of ten! Dr. Waldrep did a great job---what else is there to say---if you have a choice in surgeons, Dr. Waldrep is the one!
Dr. Waldrep is a very cool dude. Easy going.
Dr. Waldrep seemed very knowledgeable and confident in himself. He made sure that we knew the complications of this surgery. The doctor also has a very outgoing personality which takes the nervousness out of the whole ordeal. I think his surgical competence and bedside manner are just great. I chose to have Dr. Waldrep perform my surgery. I think he is wonderful and is very caring.
My first impression of Dr. Waldrep was that he was very knowledgeable and kind. I had had a bad experience with another surgeon who strung me along for a year trying to get me to lose weight and every time I did he would move the goal post and though I lost 24 pounds after a while it crept back-- as if I was seeking surgery for a lark and not because I had failed for 40 years at dieting---it was like saying to a drunk, we'll let you into AA, but first you have to get sober! It was torture and I finally left his office in tears knowing that I would never have surgery with that doctor. Dr. Waldrep was very kind in listening to me and agreeing with me about the torture part and he responded to my questions, although I had already read every book and article and talked to friends who had had it so I was pretty well informed to start with. He continued to be kind through the surgery and post-op in the hospital. He has a great sense of humor. It is in keeping with his general brilliance. I highly recommend him and his practice as the best kind available. I am glad I finally got so fed up and frustrated with the other surgeon that I pursued Dr. Waldrep. I am grateful that he was there and took me on as a patient. I had the surgery by the time I would have had to go back to the other surgeon to again fail at dieting.
We cannot say enough complimentary things about Dr. Waldrep. He has gone out of his way to make this journey possible and pleasant. Dr. Waldrep's skill is nothing short of a miracle. Overall, I'd say he's the best!
I was so very fortunate to have surgery with Dr. Waldrep. Yes, he is extremely well-qualified. I feel I made the best decision possible in choosing this surgeon. It's been a wonderful experience!
I've learned he has a great aftercare program, cares about his patients, works hard, and lets one know about all the risks of surgery. This surgeon works hard to accommodate all his patients the best he can. His surgical competence and bedside manner are excellent. Dr. Waldrep is nice and easy to talk with, empathetic, intuitive, understanding, and a good surgeon. He is an expert in his field, and treats his patients with a great deal of respect. I am grateful to have a surgeon like him who truly understands the pain I have endured. One really gets the feeling he's walked in your shoes which is pretty unique. He is interested in everyone's story and is genuine. You could not ask for a better surgeon than Dr. Waldrep. His skill produces excellent results. I've lost 108 pounds in 12 months.
From what I've seen and done I’m really glad about my choice in Dr.'s ...
Dr. Waldrep is super. I have had the best experiences with them so far.
I heard through his former and current patients that he is very competent, and has a good reputation… both entertaining (he has a great sense of humor) and informative. I was feeling pretty anxious about my surgery, but after my pre-op appointment with Dr. Waldrep I felt reassured and more confident. He took his time and answered all my questions. I never felt rushed or like I was asking questions he had already heard a million times.
Dr. Waldrep is very nice. I did not have to many questions but the ones I did he had the answer. My impression of the Dr. is still great. His availability is a little slim but he is a very busy surgeon.

I found him to be easy enough to talk to, and even funny. I would rate Dr. Waldrep as an excellent choice for anyone's laparoscopic surgery. He is highly skilled and has great expertise in his field. After all, we place our lives in his hands, so we have to rely on his education and track record, don't we? I highly recommend him.

First Impression: very professional and understanding of his patients. My opinion has not changed over time, and the more people I talk to who have also had him for a surgeon have had nothing but good to say about him. I give Dr. Waldrep a 10.

I give Dr. Waldrep an A+!
My medical office said that Dr. Waldrep was the best. A lady that I worked with said that he was the best. My Bariatric physician said that he was the best. (I've also seen his picture and he's pretty good looking.)
I liked Dr. Waldrep, he is very sensitive and he is very committed to helping me attain my goals. Your life won't be the same and neither will you’re eating. He is a skilled surgeon and he definitely knows what he is doing.

Both Dr. Waldrep's bedside manner and surgical competence are top notch. I know this sounds biased but believe me when I say my family could not be happier with my whole scenario.

Dr. Waldrep is a great guy.
