The only reason I use this provider is that she is the pain management specialist. The wait is over an hour to be seen. I could go to Spokane but I raise an 8 and a 4-year-old. As far as services go this is the worst place I have ever gone.

I am sorry, I like Dr. Waters. Waters is way over booked. I couldn't even think of seeing her for a new problem. Dr. Waters is the ONLY pain Management in the area or I'd be gone. Having to wait an hour and a half is crazy and I tried to days in a row. I go to school and raise 2 kids. I don't have the time but I need my medication. I've been told to go to Spokane but that is 4 hours plus the appointment

I would give dr waters an excellent recommendation. the medical assistant she has working for her now is someone who gave me cellulitis when she gave me a shot for shingles. I also tried to tell her that I can't get my [...] because my insurance won't cover it without my medical records showing that I've tried all other meds. and she tells me that I can get it over the counter, neadless to say I had to argue with her to understand that you cant. [...] I had to go back on previcid and I got really sick, so I've been given samples at the clinic. a lady from the clinic called me yesterday and said that she had two months worth of sample and I was so pleased and went there and picked them up but when I got home I had two bottles of 5 pills each so now I have to see if I can get more until my records are sent to the insurance company. I am so displeased with this clinic now! I call the and told the phone nurse that I had to go to the ER because I couldn't take my medicine [...] because of insurance and had to take previcid and she said "BEAUSE OF A STOMACH ACHE"! I'm so done!! I'm not sure what to do next

Still have the problem. Was told I would get a referral to a rheumatologist. Haven't heard anything. Have no idea what to do next or if my hand is just going to stay this way? Very depressing. The visting doctor, whom I saw the week before said I had lupus! Then Dr. Waters did the new blood test & said I didn't. [...]

I was referred to physical therapy instead of MRI. [...] I am in too much pain to handle physical therapy. I need an MRI.

Great improvement on wait time for getting into exam room and getting blood drawn. Test results and doctor comments were posted within 48 (I think it was 24) hours.

Leslie Waters is a caring physician. I usually have to wait for long periods of time, the amount of time depends upon whether she's had an emergency and the time of the day of the appointment. I do not mind this because I know that she is probably giving each of her patients her full attention! That is what I experience and appreciate about her!
