Client Testimonials

“I had no idea I’d meet this awesome person, here I had my tonsils removed due to abscesses(worst pain of my adult life). Along with a orbital floor fracture repaired with his expertise and I really am happy with my results. Picture perfect on my nose resetting from being broken and other minor repairs here and there..Loving my results so will stick with his office for the rest of my life and besides it’s quality work!”

"I feel ‘very blessed’ to be a patient of Dr. Waters for 15+ years. He is an amazing doctor! The kindest most caring doctor I have ever been to. On each of my doctor visits I always tell him, “Dr. Waters I wish you could be my doctor for everything!” His staff is great as well. Sheila is amazing – she too is a most wonderful caring person. Thank you Dr. Waters for being my Doctor!”
