      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Watters' Care Philosophy

      Taking care of women is certainly a privilege that I have enjoyed for the last 30+ years.  We have always taken the philosophy that caring for women was the greatest privilege since they are often the decision makers for both their children and their entire family.  Our goal is to improve the health of women on a year to year basis.  Whether that be assisting them with their pregnancy, helping them start their families, or helping them with their issues in reproductive life or the menopause. Our goal is to have a successful, happy , and productive lifestyle for which they can continue with a wellness program that we would recommend for them.  While we deal with emergency and critical care issues for women, we hope to be able to eliminate some of those cases by practicing a preventive and personal type of medicine that can only be found in a practice that has this philosophy.  Many practices today, because of increased issues related to the Federal Health Care Programs, have minimized their time with patients and have limited their ability to look at the entire patient and to review previous medical records as well as to develop a health and wellness plan for the patient, so that they may continue to have the most appropriate and productive lifestyle, which will allow them to enjoy their family and friends, which also includes a plan for their long term health. We treat our obstetrical patients with the greatest degree of comfort, we interact with our patients, we share information with them and we get to know our patients, so that we can provide the type of care that they personally would like to have while starting their families.  We believe that infertility is an inappropriate word, and that there is no such thing under usual circumstances.  Some patients may find that they are sub fertile and we are always willing to help them obtain their goal and reaching a successful outcome for delivering their child or children.
