A Closer Look at Dr. Waldman's Philosophy & Approach
“Patients frequently ask me how I chose my specialty. To answer, I need to provide a bit of insight into my personal life and education. Growing up, my talents seemed to lie in two areas: the sciences and the arts. I excelled in math, biology, and chemistry and knew that I would pursue a career in medicine. With my passion for art, I was fortunate to have aunts who had incredible talents in painting, sculpting, and crafts. With their guidance, I developed a love for creating elaborate pieces. At the age of 12, I began playing the drums and soon learned piano and guitar as well.
As one of the founders of Bella Vista ENT & Facial Plastic Surgery, I focus on having a practice that reflects the diversity of my interests. I treat serious medical conditions, such as cancer, and perform cosmetic surgery. Regardless of what disorder I am treating or what surgery I am performing, I always stay true to a core set of values that define my medical practice. I believe that all patients should be treated as if they were family members. I feel that providing a welcoming, comfortable, and clean office and surgical environment is essential to quality care. I believe that all patients deserve patience, respect, and empathy from my staff. I believe that a healthy physician-patient relationship is reciprocal and based on mutual respect, clear communication, honesty, and trust. I feel that consistent, exceptional surgical results can only be obtained through careful planning, meticulous techniques, and a continued critical analysis of results.”
