My eye doctor found start of detachment in one eye, recommended Waterhouse. His office scheduled me out 1 week, rather than seeing me right away. The next day detachment increased, so I called. Waterhouse reassured me I could wait. In the next couple days my retina fully detached. 1 month later he did surgery. Can now only see shades of light. Had he responded sooner, things might be different. If you have any signs of detachment, make the drive to Denver or Salt Lake and see real doc.

Dr. Waterhouse is not the doctor you should choose if you need someone to be sympathetic, understanding, and diplomatic. Dr. Waterhouse is the doctor you should choose if you need an excellent surgeon who will save your eyesight. I have a rare form on cancer. Dr. Waterhouse not only reattached my retina, his letter to the other doctors involved resulted in action that helped me get treatment.

He is rude, condescending, patronizing and a bad surgeon please go somewhere else , He should not be a surgeon . I lost vision because of him. It has been a nightmare. Your eyes are worth it.He is the only eye surgeon in town ,that's why he has a practice here.

This doctor is rude, arrogant and impatient. I had a retinal detachment and he missed it. I'd definitely go somewhere else. He moved here because he is the only one and works out of a bad hospital

Dr. Waterhouse has no bedside manners. Very rude and condescending. Office staff is the most unorganized I've ever seen in the medical profession. Office procedures are antiquated. My optometrist has more sophisticated equipment. He does absolutely know what he's doing but appointments are less than pleasant. Wish we had a choice.

I've been seeing Dr. Waterhouse for over 4 years. He understands my condition (which is rare) and knows exactly how to deal with it. I appreciate his formalness because he has alleviated any fear I started with about getting shots in my eyes. He's quiet, but once you get to know him, he's really nice. He saved my eyesight and I will forever be grateful for that.

Dr. Waterhouse saved my sight, which means my experience was excellent, and from my point of view, miraculous.
