Dr. Watters performed major back surgery on me 10 years ago. I have not had any problems and would highly recommend this doctor.
No... No.... Think twice before scheduling with this provider, from a disabled healthcare practitioner. Maybe he was having bad day. Came into room with a VERY NASTY attitude. He never touched me for an examination at no time. Yet made statements in chart that would require him examining me/or running tests. The front desk does not care about patient privacy either. They just yell things out to you like, "you on Medicare?" The manager at front desk did excellent explaining the delay.

Don't bother. They don't answer the phone.

Dr. Watters performed back surgery on my lower back in July 2010. It is now Jan 2016 and I have been doing great every since then. I can't believe how well I am still doing.
