I can still remember my first appointment with Dr. Waddell. I was so surprised by how much time she spent with me, how many good questions she asked, how she wasn’t overwhelmed by my complicated health history – instead, she seemed interested in digging deeper and putting the pieces of the puzzle together, inquiring about my priorities while addressing actual causes of symptoms. She didn’t just prescribe me another drug with a bunch of side effects – although she has a balanced approach that does acknowledge the usefulness of prescription drugs and I have benefitted from antiobiotics, etc. in her care. She has enthusiastically and creatively tackled many of my health and wellness issues: high blood pressure, high cortisol, digestive discomforts, fertility and pregnancy support, thyroid support, immune system weaknesses, and adrenal fatigue, to name a few.* I’m constantly amazed by the amount of knowledge and resourcefulness Dr. Waddell displays. Her process is incredibly scientific and her knowledge of research and evidence-based treatments is impressive. I appreciate her willingness to consider multiple perspectives, weighing options while allowing me to be part of the process. And now, I trust Dr. Waddell with my daughter’s health as well. She is truly an expert healthcare provider; no one has been as attentive to my needs or as successful.
