Kathleen Waldorf, MD, FACS Reviews (198)

Face Lift

Looks better and I especially think the under eye lift was beneficial. The upper eye is ok, but I have some odd hard scar spots, that I suspect will fad.

Breast Reduction

Everything I was curious about she gave me a very thorough explanation for and was very easy to talk too.

Breast Lift

Dr. Waldorf answered all my questions and helped me figure out the best options for me.

Breast Augmentation

Great staff. 1st surgery ever and the team made me so comfortable and calm. I knew I was in GREAT hands. I have never felt like a real woman till now. Thank you team players.


Results were just what I wanted.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Waldorf always does such an amazing job, my wrinkles are smoothed but my face is not frozen!

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Waldorf did a wonderful job, and is very honest and caring.

Face Lift

Dr. Waldorf took the time to explain her opinion and what exactly should be done. She allowed for questions. She also allowed for a follow-up teleconference to answer further questions the following week.

Breast Reduction

Very informative. Very professional. Friendly and safe environment.

Breast Implant Revision

I'm so very grateful to be a patient of Dr. Waldorf's! I cannot express my gratitude enough. More than anything with my upcoming breast augmentation revision, she creates in me hope for a better self image. The capsular contracture has brought me into her care, and I could not be in more capable hands! During my recent consultation with her, she helped me see how she will not only remove this contracture, but also place different implants and perform a lift! Dr. Waldorf helped me feel secure with her confidence and expertise. Rather than perform the minimum of care for an adequate solution, she strives to provide the BEST outcome for me, the patient! She kindly listened to my feelings about how the improvement of my body has helped my nearly 40 year marriage, and Dr. Waldorf took her time to address all of my concerns and questions. I am so happy that I will be in this important surgery with Dr. Waldorf! I know that trusting her with my results is the best decisions I could make.

Breast Implant Revision

I like the suggestions offered by Dr. Waldorf for me. I felt cared for and it was easy to get in touch with the center when I had questions.

Mommy Makeover

I seriously love the results and Dr. Waldorf was super kind and made me feel important. The staff truly made me feel good, and safe. They took excellent care of me. Listened to my concerns. [Single best thing is...] The way I feel about my body now.

Breast Augmentation

Professional, atmosphere, Dr. Waldorf has tons of experience and is board certified.

Tummy Tuck

Questions were answered thoroughly and didn’t feel rushed. Presented with a few different options.

MD was clear, direct. Made multiple suggestions / options invasive to less invasive strategies. A pricelist was supplied by email the next day for the number of options presented.

Breast Augmentation

They were very informative and made me feel that I will be in great hands. Great staff.

Breast Implant Revision

Staff were responsive, kind and professional. calls were quickly returned. They made coordination of a need to travel 3.5 hours for care during a pandemic as easy as possible for me.

Breast Reduction

My experience with Dr. Waldorf was the worst patient/doctor experience I have ever had. She has no bedside manor. She saw me simply as a number and took no time to understand who I am or what I am doing to care for my health. She made assumptions and asked inappropriate probing questions in an attempt to validate these problematic assumptions. She was practicing far beyond her scope during our appointment and was incredibly rude when I challenged her on that. I felt completely trapped. I wanted to leave the room as soon as I could see what a terrible provider she was but I was half dressed. What a complete waste of my time and money. I’ve since consulted with three other doctors who are troubled by her approach and assured me they will not refer patients to this practice. I don’t know why I expected anything positive from a woman who has built her entire career on upholding the ideals of the patriarchy by profiting off of the archaic concept that women are inherently broken and need to be fixed. If this is a legacy Dr. Waldorf is proud of I want nothing to do with her or her practice ever again.

Face Lift

Dr. Waldorf did a wonderful job on my face she succeeded by making me look much younger. I felt cared for and gave me a lot of support while I was healing.
