Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I had a great knee surgery which was performed by Dr. Watters. It has been about a year since my surgery and I'm back 100%. It took a while to get the hamstrings back in shape to climb stairs and inclines, but I am able to do that now. I have no pain and my strength continues to improve with constant work.

I’m am shocked that he received so many positive reviews. He told me I had arthritis and sent me home with this contraption that you put on to your leg which was suppose to help with the pain. It did absolutely nothing to help. I went to a different orthopedic who said that this thing would do nothing to help. Got an injection instead. Maybe Dr. Watters is great for knee replacement but I would stay away from him. Money making devices they have right in their office.

Dr. Watters performed a total right hip replacement for me. He did an excellent job explaining why I needed surgery and what to expect. I was well informed and confident of his abilities going into surgery. I trusted him with my life and I feel wonderful after my surgery. He has a great team working with him as well. I highly recommend Dr. Watters!

Staff was very friendly and personable. I had a hip replacement and 6 weeks out am doing great. Have already been to the beach and am easing back into my regular activities. I drove from Edenton ( almost 2 1/2 hrs) and would recommend Dr. Watters and his staff to others and I will return if/ when I need to.
