I love Dr. Waterstone and am on my second pregnancy with her. My husband and I have moved out of New York City and I still continue to see her. She is friendly during appointments and always on time. Whenever I've had an issue, she's been calm and clear with the diagnosis. She strikes the ideal balance (for me) in that she's supportive but not overly chatty and is very practical in her guidance and explanations. I trust her guidance implicitly. Highly recommend!

Had a great visit with Dr. Waterstone. She really took the time to get to know me and my history, and managed to be both very friendly and very professional at the same time.

I have been seeing Dr. Waterstone since my third month of pregnancy (disaster with my first OBGYN). I had a few minor issues along the way and delivered via c-section as my baby was breach. I healed incredibly quickly and post concerns - physical and mental - were addressed. It has been over 7 years since I have been seeing her and I very happy with my visits. She is very practical, takes precautions and is straight to the point. She once called me late Friday night to let me know my MAMO was perfect so I can "enjoy the weekend".

LOVE Dr. Waterstone! She's really truly incredible at her job. Super easy to talk to and makes you feel so comfortable in her presence. I'm not sure if it's her knowledge, confidence or what - but it's contagious - she had me feeling like a "I got this," mentality throughout my pregnancy even when there were issues w the pregnancy. She thoroughly explained everything at every step along the way, I couldn't be more grateful - it was almost like we were a team. You truly feel the support and energy from everyone at the office. Side note: Pregnant people can be a little crazy but also so can your significant others during this time. I'd get a laugh whenever my husband would ask a silly question about something he read and she would answer but then also say to - stay off the internet. When I asked questions that aired on the side of overly- cautious or worrisome/crazy person she was always assertive in her answers and answered i a way that reminded me, "we got this."

Dr. Waterstone is the best doctor I see. Her knowledge and experience are the best I’ve experienced. She was my ob/gyn through all three of my pregnancies and delivered my three sons. I had zero birth complications and needed three c-sections, so that is saying a lot. Not only is she amazing with pregnancy and delivery, but she is the best with just routine gynecological care. I travel into the city just to see her- over an hour away from my home. She is just that good. She also always takes time to answer all my questions and still has a great sense of humor and outlook. Again, can’t say enough about her- truly the best!

There is no one in the world whom I trust more when I am pregnant then Dr. Waterstone. She is firm, smart, straight to the point. Empathic and addresses all your questions and/or concerns. She delivered both my babies via c section and I didn’t have a worry in the world because I knew everything was going to be okay. Be sure to call in advanced she books fast!!!!

In the middle of COVID-19 Dr. Waterstone was great at providing some familiarity and a sense of assurance that what I was experiencing was natural. I loved that she provided steps for me to complete and that she wanted feed back about the outcome. Although Dr. Waterstone is my GYN, I consistently feel she uses a holistic approach when treating her patients. I LOVE it and It goes a long way.

I love Dr. Waterstone. Saw her for my first pregnancy and always found her dry humor and honesty incredibly refreshing. Her entire practice is outstanding and the office/admin runs like butter. We rarely had to wait more than a few minutes before appointments. When two of my closest friends got pregnant, I immediately referred them to Waterstone. She basically knows my entire friend group now. The nurses are also phenomenal.

Dr Watersone has been my OBGYN physician for 7 years and counting. She's the best!!! After two pregnancies and labor experiences, I wouldn't trade her for anybody else. She is so Motherly, Compassionate, Understanding and Empathetic. Would I go to another OBGYN provider, not at all. I love Dr Waterstone and I do plan to have my other children only under her care because she's phenomenal!!!

Dr. Waterstone has been my doctor for 12+ years. I love her efficient manner and direct feedback to my questions. Most importantly she safely and successfully brought my 2 children into the world! As a caregiver she also saw me through 2 failed pregnancies and a scary mammogram. I can’t say enough about her skills, her network of doctors and my confidence in her.
