Dr. Watson provided me with the best care, kindness, and support that I could have asked for before, during and after my operation. I was very nervous and scared when I found out I needed to have my gallbladder removed, and Dr. Watson really helped calm those fears. He spoke to me in a way I could understand what would be happening, and answered all of my (and mother's) questions with happiness and ease.
