There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 30 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

I was nervous about my surgery and Dr. Waters explained the procedure and was so nice and understanding.

Dr. Waters came into the room and immediately struck up a conversation about me. He showed general interest in hearing about my family, and even my desires to have more children. He spent a good 5-10 minutes just talking to be before even checking me out. It felt good to know I wasn't just another person in a room that he needed to rush along. I will continue to request seeing Dr. Waters for any future appointments I may have a Geisinger's OB department.

This was my first time with Dr. Waters. He made me feel very comfortable and was very thorough. He made the transition from my previous Dr. very easy. Dr. Waters is a wonderful Dr.

Dr. Waters seemed to be in a rush, appointment lasted less than 10 minutes. Did not take any time to try to get to know the patient.

Dr. Waters was very thorough in explaining other birth control options to me. I was interested in something other than the pill and he explained what options I had and how they would be inserted.

Only had 1 visit with this provider. Need more visits to form an opinion.

This was the 3rd time I had been to Dr. Waters for my annual physical and he acted like I had never been to him before. He obviously didn't look over my chart before coming into room because he didn't remember a condition I have.

Already recommended him to several others.

was asked twice if I needed any prescription refilled. I said twice that yes I needed my birth control refilled. however I called the pharmacy today and they did not have my refill. they had to contact the doctor and I was unable to pick it up as I had hoped to

Told to follow up in 2 weeks and to schedule a growth sonogram that was already scheduled in Danville, do not feel my chart was looked at before coming in to room. I was just a number with limited time.
