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...more

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.
