Patient Comments (5)

For three/four years I suffered from Sciatica, Spinal Stenosis, and a dislocated disc. On Jan. 18, 2017 I had surgery by David Waters and I am here to tell you, one year later, that I feel wonderful. He is blessed with the ability to correct problems like mine and I cannot recommend him enough.
