9/14/2015

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Waters. His kindness and compassion made me feel very much cared for and at ease during a stressful procedure. He saw me the same day I called for an appointment, fitting me into his very busy day. He also asked me to follow up with him a day or two later by email to let him know how I was doing, which I really appreciated. I highly recommend Dr. Waters.

Outstanding provider! Never had a bad experience any time I have seen him.

Dr Waters was very good in explaining in detail my questions about the surgery. I really was scared to have the surgery, but after talking with him and his gentle spirit and assurance was a great comfort to me. I appreciate him very much.

8/11/2015

Dr. Waters and his resident were very knowledgeable and provided excellent care.

8/4/2015

During my last visit, I had several questions about my recovery, gi recommendations, etc. and he was called to the or so I could not ask him anything. I literally had to pull my pants down for a checkup (no chance to cover with a sheet) and he was gone. I have since sent two messages via mywakehealth and have received no response. Dr. Waters is highly recommended by people I know, but I think his schedule stays too packed to spend any time with patients.

8/3/2015

Dr. Waters was very through and knowledgeable about my condition. I have complete faith in his judgement.

7/26/2015
