Dr. Waters has been amazing. My husband has early onset Parkinson's and has been receiving fantastic care from Dr. Waters. He has never felt better. She is on the cutting edge of research and has real time knowledge of up and coming treatments in the Parkinson's community. She is approachable, compassionate and confident ~ all the traits you want in a physician. We couldn't be in better hands & highly recommend!

The rudest doctor I've ever met. I was warned before my appointment. No discussion allowed. She misdiagnosed patient due to her arrogance.

Dr. Waters and her staff are exceptional professionals. She has diagnosed my husband with PD, prescribed the correct medication and put our minds at easy by explaining to us how the treatment will work and there is a long quality life ahead of us.

Dr. Waters belongs in a lab, not with patients. She lacks the ability to communicate compassionately with her patients. She does not listen well, does not give full engagement and frankly is rude. Not the type of thing one is looking for when very sick with Parkinson's disease. Very disappointing experience.

I was diagnosed by another dr and went to Dr. Waters for a 2nd opinion. While the diagnosis was the same I left her office so hopeful. She was there every step of the way for the past 7 years and responds via email day or night. I feel blessed to have found such a wonderful and knowledgeable dr.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

She refuses to allow her (totally unsupported by fact) misdiagnosis to be questioned.
