I recently received some injections from Chandra, and it went very well. She was very knowledgeable and professional. She answered all my questions. The whole process went very well with very little discomfort. Having gotten injections at another facility, I can say I highly recommend coming here. From checking in to leaving it was a quick, easy, and painless experience. I highly recommend!!

My poor little boy got hurt playing on the bleachers. ?????? We met his teachers at urgent care and after 3 doctors looked at his head which the first one said "ohhhhggg" (In a very unpleasant voice, I did tell her she was not supposed to say that). We decided to bring him to Dr. Waters office and I cannot tell you all how THANKFUL, GRATEFUL, --> EMOTIONAL I am for Dr. Waters and his staff!! To say they were amazing is an understatement!! They GOT GAME is a humorous way to put it but in all seriousness they are an ELITE team that made a scared sad family feel calm and at ease with the entire process of patching Henry up! Henry didn't cry one time in their office (which is a miracle for my mama's boy) ???? THANK YOU DR. WATERS & TEAM!!

I was nervous about my upcoming appointment due to my diagnosis. I am please and so thankful to the staff at Dr. Waters office. Everyone I had contact with treated me with respect and kindness. From the receptionist who called to set up my appointment, to the nurse who showed empathy, and of course to Dr. Waters who calmed my nerves as he explained each step in setting up a plan to get to the bottom of my illness. Thank you Dr. Waters and Staff.

I originally started seeing Dr. Waters for my indoor & outdoor allergies. He also had removed my birthmark on my nose, in 2003. Now I currently have been seeing him for botox & filler injections! Hes a wonderful doctor, very knowledgeable & caring towards his patients.

Dr. Waters and staff treated my grandson with such care when he fell and cut his lip. It was near closing time and when I called they told me to bring him in. Although no stitches were needed Dr. Waters put a steri strip in place and assured him and momma that he was going to be ok and to call with any questions. Highly recommend!

Dr Waters placed tubs in our sons ears after several severe ear infections. He was thorough with his explanation of the procedure and his follow up was spot on.
