Dr.Waterfallen is one of the most kind & compassionate OBGYNs I've encountered. I have had 3 different OBs deliver me & Waterfallen is my favorite. He is also specialized in high risk pregnancy and assisted me in a healthy delivery. If you are looking for someone knowledgeable & compassionate he's your guy!
