This talented man saved my life and I shall forever be grateful to him and the supporting staff in the cardiac catheterization lab at Lowell General. He was decisive, fast, compassionate and competent beyond measure when my life was on the line. He inserted two DES stents in my 100% occluded right coronary artery and I would not be here if not for his efforts, experience and training. Thank you, Dr. Waters....I plan to make better decisions and do good things with the time you’ve given me.

Dr. Waters installed two very difficult stints on me back in November, 2014. When my then Cardiologist retired in June 2015, I was very pleased to get Dr. Waters as my new cardiologist.
