What People Say About Dr. Wayne Waterman, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Arrogant. Does not seem able to handle patients who have in depth questions who have had spinal surgeries before. Nine months post op and back issues only 30% better. Less than two weeks post op was readmitted due to infection. Pain so severe I had to go to hospital in tears. Dr. Waterman couldn't handle my tears and pain. He had to leave the room and left me with his assistant. Horrible, horrible experience. Never again.

Dr. Waterman was excellent. He really took the time to explain exactly what was wrong, what procedure I needed, and the expected results. He was able to make me understand how necessary the procedure was without scaring me about it (and having surgery on your spine is scary stuff). I have recommended him to my friends and family members who end up with neurosurgery needs.
