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.


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


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.


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


always very good with me.


I will be more glad to tell someone about, them.




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
