Patient Reviews (3)
Sought a second opinion. Very rude and abrupt dr. Maybe he was tired, but we came away feeling terrible about our visit. Took us months to respond to a review.

I have been seeing Dr Waters for the past 3 years. I have been living with back pain from Scoliosis for several years. Dr Waters gave me every chance with less aggressive treatment before major Multi level lumbar fusion surgery . From the first day post op my pain was manageable , now 2 months out I'm doing great with no pain. I would recommend neurosurgical specialist to anyone having back pain , they are the best.

Dr. Waters was referred to me by a friend and I have appreciated his precision in his diagnosis and help in determining the right course of treatment. In my Father's case it was to not proceed with surgery, even though I had another doctor ready to do surgery ASAP. He is a no nonsense, get to the point gentleman. I would reccomend him to anyone looking for a surgeon.
