Dr Waters and his team are the best, I have much respect for his knowledge and care for my health. As a matter of fact I think Wake Forest Baptist Hospital is the best. God Bless all of you, Thank You.
I have complete trust and confidence in Dr. Waters abilities and his concerns for my overall care.
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.
