I guess we should wait till after the operation to ask any more questions!

I was hurting, scared of what it may be, new to this office, and everyone in there made me feel like I mattered and that they cared. Best experience I have had at a doctor's office in a very long time. I was taken care of, everything was explained and handled with the best of care. Dr Waltrip was just wonderful.

Dr. Waltrip seems very smart when it comes to diagnosing and treating joint problems. However, he seems more interested in determining that by himself without a lot of listening from the patient.

August 14, 2018

Dr. Waltrip has no bedside manners, no care about what was going on with me and talked to me like I was beneath him. Not only will I never return to Tri-State, I also have told my family and friends to avoid going there.

August 13, 2018

Great experience. Dr. Waltrip knows how to relate to his patients. He is honest, kind, and extremely intelligent.
