Dr. Waters did an excellent job and everyone on his staff was friendly, helpful, and professional!

I was very impressed with the facility and staff. Dr. Waters removed my tonsils. I felt my questions were always answered and I was give excellent care.

I took my daughter to see Katie Starns for ear infections. I found the staff to be very professional and appreciate Katie taking the time to explain to me what options we had. I will definitely return.

Seeing Dr. Waters is a waste of time. They need your medical records to see you, but don’t tell you until it’s too late. Plan to wait 30 min as they are always running late and bring you’re A-game as the combative staff will argue with you about everything. I even got an extremely unprofessional lecture from his CNP, Katie on demanding medical records, how tubes don’t help with balance, and that I will have to pay for the surgery. There are better ENT doctors and cosmetic doctors in the area!

He did my husband's face reconstruction and looks amazing. Can't tell his far was shattered. I have seen him and really like his knowledge and how he recommends only what will work for me.
in Brainerd, MN |
Very poor service/knowledge. Staff uncaring. Referral 4 ear pain after infection. Throat scope & audiogram done, normal. Walked in 3 weeks later extreme vertigo. Couldn't drive, could barely walk. Dr. gone for 2 days. Begged to get in following Monday. Staff said, "NO, nothing we can do for you." ENT clinic should have recognized diagnosis of benign positional vertigo. Told me 2 take aspirin & go home. BEWARE: this clinic is uncaring & unknowledegable. Nightmare. Highly 'do not' recommend
