Dr. Watson is fantastic. I met with a few neurosurgeons before ultimately choosing him, not only due to his vast experience but also the confidence he exudes when discussing his thoughts and plans. He always answered my questions patiently and made me feel cared for but also doesn’t sugar coat things so you can have realistic expectations. Also his office manager/receptionist Claudia is the best and I always appreciated her friendly demeanor and squeezing me into their schedules.

Best Neurosurgeon. He has been my doctor since 2010. He is the best, he has a great bed side manner. He has referred mentors other types of doctors to make sure that the doctors are a match for me. His office and assistant doctors spend quality time with you and answer any questions. Amazing doctor and team.

Dr. Watson is an awesome neurosurgeon, I can't recommend him highly enough! Husband was diagnosed with a very large brain tumor in early October. Unfortunately, his last & only treatment option was surgery. Post-op recovery can range from weeks to months. Thanks to Dr. Watson and his team, my husband walked out of the hospital less than 24hrs after surgery and his healing has been nothing short of miraculous. No facial paralysis, balance issues or dizziness. Amazing. Thank you!!!

Dr. Watson is the best. Wouldn’t let anyone else touch my brain. From his caring and applied attitude, to his knowledge and evident expertise. He has rock steady hands, and the best attitude anyone can ask for a Doctor/ Surgeon. He is confident and prompt in his answers and attitude. His office is welcoming and clean, his administration team are extremely helpful and nice. I recommend him to the world. He is the best at what he does.

I feel like Dr. Watson saved my life. He removed a brain tumor with precision and care and the results were as if nothing every happened! His manner is reassuring and calm, and he has a sense of humor that meshes with mine.. After the surgery you will not feel abandoned by him or his office.

Dr Watson was friendly and empathic during his initial visit with my father in law and family. My dad is Filipino and despite the cultural and language differences Dr. W made the plan simple and straightforward. He reassured everyone at the bedside and sat, giving us all the impression of an unrushed and caring clinician. After surgery he was communicative and attentive. He drove all the way west to my dad-in-law's rehab facility to visit him and check on his recovery! Well done and thank you.

I was in need of a neurosurgeon and requested appointment on line. I was called the next morning and the receptionist was kind, caring and compassionate and found a new patient appointment for the following week. From the moment I walked into the office I felt comfortable and at ease. Dr. Watson came in and my husband and I liked him immediately. He Took time and answered all our questions. He has a excellent bedside manner and knack for putting you at ease and inspiring trust.

I have been highly impressed with Dr Watson since my first visit. His personality and sense of caring along with his experience in the field of Neurosurgery left me with a sense of unquestionable trust leading up to my surgery. I had a large tumor removed just over a week ago and was home resting the following day. I have had zero complications thanks to this highly skilled surgeon. I would recommend Dr Watson to anyone in need on this kind of surgery.

Dr. Watson is superb. He is not only extremely knowledgeable and professional, but very caring. He was the 2nd neurosurgeon we consulted after my mother had emergency surgery in another state for a broken neck. The comparison between the two was extraordinary. Dr. Watson read and familiarized himself with my mothers case, her various scans, and the procedure she had. He then took the time to talk with her and make her feel safe and comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Watson!

Dr Watson is the most pleasant person and caring doctor I have ever met. He was covering for another surgeon is why o met him after a serious accident and needed follow up surgery for an infection and he talked to me like family and did what was needed right away. If all doctors were as nice and competent as Dr Watson our health care system would be so much better. Thank You for helping me and just for being a great person. This is Jim with broken neck and secondary infection. Best Doc ever.

if he is the first surgeon you have seen, please get a second opinion. if he is the second doctor you have seen then return to the first doctor you saw or ask for a third opinion. my experience with dr. watson was less than ideal. my surgical outcome was not what I expected at all. I had more problems after he operated on me . after the one and only post-op appointment he was done with me.

I felt totally comfortable with Dr. Watson from Day 1. He was honest, caring, and brilliantly diagnosed my conditions, one which was very risky, yet he performed so well that I no longer have ANY of the previous pain, something I lived with for over 40 years! I think if we ever move away and I need help of his kind, I'd actually consider making the trip to be under his care once again!

Told me, after looking at 7 month old MRI that I should see a psychiatrist for my prolactinoma symptoms which includes copious daily lactation at 56. Untreated pituitary tumors often cause cancers elsewhere in the body, but he JUDGED ME PERSONALLY and dismissed me out of hand. Now what? Well the Georgetown specialists and internist have found one metastatic growth in the month since I was sent to Watson. When an MD blows off a patient, the ease of scheduling is immaterial.
