August 04, 2016

Dr. Watson was always very professional and always concerned with my care. He operated on me before and I respect his opinion. That is why I referred my father in law to him and he was taken care of completely.

April 14, 2016

Dr. Watson cares about his patients and checked on me after I was discharged from the hospital following surgery to make sure that I was okay. His staff also demonstrates a high level of concern for the patient.

April 14, 2016

Everyone I had interactions with were excellent. I was treated with respect and courtesy, which is common practice for this office in my previous experiences. Dr. Watson always takes his time to discuss my concerns and any issues I may have, he never leaves me wondering. He is truly an excellent person and doctor.
