Wouldn't recommend anyone else, he's very respectable, knowledgeable, and caring.


*Dr. Waters is an excellent doctor.


Excellent Doctor and staff !


Dr. Waters was very helpful in explaining my issue and what would need to be done to correct the problem. When it came time to schedule surgery, I like that he was able to sit right there and work that detail out with me in person.


I continue to be impressed by Dr. Waters, his staff and Wake Forest Baptist Hospital. We heard this was "the place" to come for colorectal cancer and Dr. Waters came highly recommended. My wife is a nurse at our local community hopital and I could have chosen to have my surgery there. Due to the high recommendations we received from numerous local physicians and healthcare workers we chose you guys and could not be more pleased.


I always saw the doctor


*Dr. Waters is an excellent physician - seemed concerned and really wanted to be of help.


My husband and I are deeply impressed with the concern and thoroughness with which Dr. Waters evaluates and plans treatment for my condition. I am grateful that he is working on our side.


I have total confidence in the care provider.


Dr. Waters is a very professional and caring doctor and I feel very comfortable talking with him about my treatment and condition. He is very knowledgeable and his standards are impeccable yet he is easy to understand and genuine. I feel very respected and I appreciate that he treats me like a person and not just a statistic.


I always tell all my friends,coworkers,and anyone that will listen how great Dr. Waters and the hospital is.




I was very impressed by the level of professionalism, care, and thoroughness of Dr. Walters and those helping with treatment. Excellent!!!


Very positive experience


Greg Waters is an excellent surgeon who is also extremely compassionate and concerned. I would definitely recommend him to family/friends. He is truly an asset to Wake Forest Baptist Health.


Dr. Waters was kind, considerate, and generous with his time in explaining answers to any questions I had for him.




Wonderful expereince throughout the process! I would recommend this doctor to my family and friends!


Dr Waters excels beyond the normal experience I have had in the past with doctors and is much more informative and down to earth providing clear understandable information.
