Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I have the best job in the world and I love my work. The greatest thing about general surgery is the range of issues that we deal with everything from lumps and bumps to pancreatic cancer. No two days are the same but all are exciting. The addition of robotic skills to my armamentarium has opened up numerous possibilities for making complex procedures much less invasive.Read more

9 months, a scar and a bill and I still have the same condition. Arrogant guy who insisted that he knew what it was -- but he didn't. It's back in the same place (under the scar he left me). Don't use this guy.

Knowledgeable, friendly, professional and low key.

Dr. Watters performed my lap chole. I had been misdiagnosed for a number of years, but he confirmed my suspicions that it was indeed my gallbladder and had me scheduled for surgery within a week. He and his office staff are wonderful. I never waited more than 7 minutes for an appointment. I definitely recommend Dr. Watters.
