Dr. David E. Waters, DPM
Dr. David Waters came to Orthopedic Associates after completing residency training in Detroit, MI. He chose to come to Farmington, NM and the four corners area because he and his family loved the community feel. He was raised in a town of similar size and loved the experience and fun a smaller community brings. He also felt there was unmet need for the highest quality of foot and ankle care within the region. He chose to be a foot and ankle specialist because he enjoys helping patients live without foot and ankle pain.
Dr. Waters received his undergraduate degree in Microbiology from Weber State University in Ogden, UT. He received a doctorate in podiatric medicine from Kent State University in Independence, OH where he served as president of his class and graduated as a member of Phi Delta Honor Society. He then went to St. John Hospital and Medical Center, in Detroit, MI, for three years of residency. There he served as the chief podiatric surgical resident. While there he received advanced training in both non-surgical and surgical management of foot and ankle disorders and deformities including total ankle replacement. He also received training in diabetic foot care, wound care and limb salvage procedures.
He is a member of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons and the American Podiatric Medical Association. Dr. Waters is excited to be here in the four corners region. He wants to keep the population up and active without foot and ankle pain. He provides a full range of foot and ankle care from non-surgical care and basic foot and ankle questions to advanced reconstruction of foot and ankle deformity and the full range of diabetic foot care.
Dr. Waters and his wife, Valerie, and their four wonderful children have relocated to Farmington and are enjoying it as their new home. They love the community feel it has and have integrated themselves into the community through scouting, sports and the arts. They enjoy spending time together as a family hiking, fishing, camping, swimming, boating and enjoying the arts in the community.
