Dr. John Waters accepted me even though I have a very rare condition and he knew it's be very difficult to help me. He saved my life several times and I (and my family) will be eternally grateful. Dr. Waters is extremely brilliant, more than competent, has great bedside manners and is ALWAYS just a phone call away. THANK YOU!
