Ratings for Dr. Celeste B. Waters
Dr Celeste Waters is an excellent Psychiatrist. Extremely thorough and professional. She has been my Doctor for almost two years now. She is very accessible both during and after office hours, and cares deeply for her patients. I always walk away from my office appointments with her, feeling better and confident in the care she provides. Lenore the front Office receptionist is very friendly, cordial and pleasant to talk to. Buddy, Dr Waters little rescue dog is very sweet and gentle. The office environment is very cozy and inviting. I feel Dr Waters provides an excellent combination of counseling therapy and medicinal management. Thank you Dr. Waters!
Worst Dr. I have ever seen. Unprofessional, inconsiderate,and rude. Over the five year period I saw her she cancelled appointments approximately 32 times. Most on the day of the appointment sometimes with as little as 1 hour notice. I live 1 hour away from her office and got cancelled on my way to her office, or while I was getting gas. Sometimes I would arrive and the office was closed because she wasn't in but I hadn't gotten a call or a message. I work and had to take days off for my appointments. Each time she cancelled I lost out on a days pay or gas to get there. She requires you cancel and give her 24 notice or pay her $150 but she doesn't ever give her patients the same courtesy. God forbid you cancel on her she'll drop you. I cancelled once on the day off and that nearly ended our relationship. She seems "Off" most of the time. Doesn't respond to emergencies and doesn't seem to have her patients best interests at heart. I was very stable throughout our relationship and only needed medication so I was able to hang in for longer than most. She is the only psychiatrist I ever thought needed a psychiatrist more than me. She has been through at least 3 receptionist since I've known her. She told me she has had legal action against her. For much of our relationship no vitals were ever taken and her office was in violation of many regulations regarding that. I stayed because my insurance only offered me two Dr's to choose from. It was her (1hr away) or one in Bakersfield (3 hrs away). My insurance has since changed and I thankfully have more and much better options. Please don't see her. Find another Dr. I fear that she would be a terrible Dr. for anyone who is not stable, who is in a compromised mental state, depressed or suicidal. I worry about people seeing her who really need help.
She cancelled scheduled appointments 50% of the time, and put me on an extra medication when I told her I did not think I needed it. When this medication made me sick, much worse, I called, because she told me to, she has yet to call me back.... If you are rude to her or her office staff, she will deny you as a patient. Worst "Dr." experience ever.
After spending less than 3 minutes talking with me, doctor waters diagnosed me as having obsessive compulsive disorder. She throws out clinical terms and off the cuff comments without spending time asking questions. This is by far the worst doctor I have ever seen.
Dr Waters was extremely helpful in one of the lowest periods of my life. I was going through a divorce & on the verge of giving up when i began to see her. She was able to greatly help me with both support & medication. I would be very surprised if Dr Waters has ever been unprofessional or unkind to any of her patients.
