Dr. Waters is a true jewel! In this day and age, some doctors try to rush you and brush your concerns off, but not him. It was a very refreshing experience and I actually felt very positive leaving the office. He was genuine, listened to my issues, offered a clear path to figuring out a solution, was funny and truly cared about me as a patient and his staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend his practice.

Have been a patient since 2007. Was having problems so I called to make an appointment. They said it would be 3 weeks. I tried to wait but was sick. I called and canceled. Had to see another doctor. Called back after seeing the other doctor who was a gynecologist. They told me I had pelvic prolapse and it had pulled my bladder down. Wanted to see him . They never even returned my call. Very disappointed. By the way his nurse is very rude and uncaring. Guess I will be seeing a different urologi

I don't have the words to express my satisfaction with Dr. Waters and his staff. My husband needed help and they went out of their way to get us appointments and care. For the first time in years, my husband can empty his bladder. I am so thankful!!!!

Visit with Dr Waters was a celebration for my husband and me! After surgeries for two tumors /stage 2 high grade-aggressive bladder cancer, months of wkly. treatments, maint. once a month for 3 months, checkups every 6 months, he is year-3 cancer free. Dr W is thorough & cautious. He, Jennifer, & staff are professional & compassionate, calming spirits. Dr W.. “We can beat this, we will be long lasting friends.” Blessed he is in our corner.

My husband held Dr. Michael G. Waters in the highest esteem. When I was diagnosed with bladder cancer I was pleased Dr. Waters would be my physician. In the past year I have come to know, not only Dr. Waters, but also his highly skilled staff. My needs are met with their compassionate care, ability to communicate, respect and knowledge. I highly recommend Gulf Coast Urology.

Very bad in the end after prostate cancer treatment. Didn't know how to stop bleeding and very painful prostate. Acquired another urologist that stopped the bleeding and treated the prostate. Dr. Waters pushed me off and refused further appointments. Very disappointing. I would not recommend him to anyone. All he said was "I Don't know" when asked about my problem.

I was seen by Dr. Michael Waters for evaluation of my incontinence issue for which surgeries and Rx medicines tried were unsuccessful. Dr. Waters recommended the Interstim Generator. after conducting the test, I was found to be a perfect candidate. The device was implanted on July 11, 2016. I could tell the device was working within 24 hours. My experience with Dr. Waters was outstanding and professional. He was easy to communicate with. I give my experience with Dr. Waters five stars.
