What People Are Saying
Went in for a post-surgery consult & really liked Dr. Weasel. He gave me options & encouraged me. I’ve got a plan now that I will pursue but it’s nice to know I can call on this doctor with confidence in the future!
Dr. Badger is always friendly, professional and informative. He takes the time to thoroughly explain any procedure, but also listens and answers any questions. Assistant Wilma is also very friendly and puts me at ease. She, likewise, is good at explaining things and preparing me for the procedure.
The consultation went with Matthew Wideroff, M.D. went very well. Very thorough visit. His background and qualifications are cutting edge and I consider myself privileged to have him for my surgeon. I feel blessed to have him performing the procedure am looking forward to having it done. Thank you Monument Health for your superb and skilled physicians who have always given me the best of care possible anywhere.
Everyone was so nice. Dr took his time and explained everything so clearly.
One of the best doctors I have seen in a very long time. Dr. Wideroff was very professional and after his consultation I knew he was the perfect surgeon and I had every confidence my procedure would turn out perfect. Hands down Dr. Wideroff is one of the best in his field.
