5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Earlier this year, I discovered RealSelf and began combing through the pages and pages of reviews to learn as much as I could about the procedure and doctors in my area. I finally found a few doctors that I felt...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Dr. Waterman helped me make a great decision regarding my health. Surgery was the only way to fix my deviated septum and straighten a long-time broken crooked nose. I can breathe evenly from both sides again! The scar is very minimal and the operating room experience was quick and painless. Not only do I feel better, I've also been told by my family and friends that my nose looks straighter...

I found Dr. Waterman to not only be a great doctor but a great person as well. It wasn't all strictly business. Over the many times I met with him we had some great conversation and a even a few laughs.

Dr. Waterman explained what work needed to be done and he went for the procedure for the surgery. He was patient and answered any questions that I had. The staff that he has are great, they're very friendly, nice and will welcome you. They are also very patient. I had to change my surgery date a couple of time and the staff understood and helped me set a new appointment. The aftercare of the surgery was good, the staff made sure I was feeling well enough to go home. Overall Dr. Waterman and his staff were very professional and made sure I was taken care of.
