Dr. Watson and his nurse were very attentive and listen to what I had to say. Dr. was very honest and forth coming, offering me a choice of options that I that had not been presented at a non UPMC provider for the same condition. Dr. Watson was very understand and considerate of my concerns about future appointment scheduling regarding travel distance and weather conditions. I came away for my appointment with Dr. Watson feeling relieved and confident that there was hope for my problems and my health concerns were going to be addressed in the not to distance future.
