Waterman is an excellent surgeon

5/19/2018

Good

5/18/2018

This was a workman's comp case. The doctor was very nice and was more worried about my care than the company who wanted this case rushed.

5/16/2018

Dr. Waterman is a wonderful surgeon. He really seems to care and really knows what he's doing. Made me feel comfortable through both of my surgeries and even calls me after each one of them and periodically just to check on me. If I had any other Orthopedic surgeries in my lifetime I would definitely choose Dr. Waterman again.

4/28/2018

4/23/2018

Dr. Waterman explained all my options in great detail and let ME make the decision. He made me feel in control of my health and never pressured me into making decisions.

4/18/2018

Dr. Waterman was very thorough in his assessment of my MRIs and extremely conscientious in explaining them to me in terms that I could understand. He spent a generous amount of time to ensure I understood what my options were and displayed genuine empathy for my concerns.

4/2/2018

I am an orthopedic/sports physical therapist with over 20 years of experience that works with patients of nearly every orthopedist in the Triad. I chose to drive over 30 minutes just to see Dr. Waterman. His credentials, knowledge, and communication are really second to none in the area.

3/24/2018

dr waterman is terrific. and joy, one of his nurses went above and beyond her duties to help me navigate my issues with the VA, which sent me to Wake Forest

3/23/2018

My leg was gaining strength and my knee felt better but my calf was continuously sore. Dr. Waterman sent me to test for a blood clot and it was positive. He called me while I was still in the vein lab to confirm the diagnosis that had been delivered by the technician, and again first thing the next morning to follow up. He also referred me to a blood clot specialist and I got a call from that office that day.

2/28/2018

Dr Waterman was very easy to talk with and understand, He explained everything in a way that I could relate to very easily

2/11/2018
