Patient Comments (9)

I have been very happy with Dr. Water's care ever since my PD diagnosis eight years ago. Prior to becoming her patient I was very concerned with the quality in terms of wait-times and more. Dr. Waters knows her field inside out. I definitely recommend friends and family.
New York, NY |
Dr. Waters is great! She is very upfront, and straightforward. She is a problem solver and will not stop searching for solutions to your issues.
in Stamford, CT |
Dr. Waters has been treating me for Parkinson's Disease since February 2016. I have been blessed to find her. She has kept my disease in check thus far. She has been monitoring my situation closely.
in Fair Lawn, NJ |
I've been under Dr. Waters care for almost 11 years now. I actually look forward and love coming to her appointments. She always makes me feel hopeful and quiets down fears and anxiety about my condition and the future. Dr Waters offers solutions to the ongoing problems and issues. Her staff also is always courteous and friendly as well as helpful.
in Rye, NY |
With little fanfare Dr Waters diagnosed me with Parkinson's about 10 years ago. Whenever a physician in another specialty sees me they inevitably comment about how well managed I am. With the addition of my Deep Brain Stimulator in March 2015 I have virtually no symptoms.Dr Waters is a compassionate And brilliant physician. Very involved in research she held the trials for the NEUPRO PATCH 4mg -8 mg
New York, NY |
I met Dr. Waters 6 yrs ago in a clinical trial that she ran, and quickly made her my doctor. A world class expert, she knew just how to tweak my PD program based on my symptoms and needs. There are no promises with PD, but I continue to work at a high pressure job and live life on my terms. I am better today than 6 yrs ago, and I did not think that was possible. My story reflects Dr. W's ability to listen to my needs, adapt my program, and encourage me to own my life again.
Little Falls, NJ |
Dr. Waters diagnosed my Parkinson's Disease over 5 years ago and has been by my side ever since. Her guidance with regards to progression and proper medication proved invaluable as it assured that I could continue almost issue-free for most of the last 5 years. She was always available for information and advice, even at ten o'clock at night. I am proud to have her as my doctor!
Caldwell nj |
Dr. Waters is fantastic. She has been helping our family with my father's severe Parkinson's disease. She immediately corrected his medications and has been there for us. She is wonderful and I highly recommend her. She even to respond to my emails.
New York, NY |
She refuses to allow her (totally unsupported by fact) misdiagnosis to be questioned.
