What People Say About Dr. Arthur Watanabe, MD
Reply
I would never recommend this Dr, I would actually encourage everyone to avoid his direction at all costs. Lackadaisical and incorrect in his diagnosis—I did not need injections on both sides, just 1, contrary to his recommendation. Cancelled appt 15 minutes before check-in. Does not sedate for invasive spinal procedures, which is not common practice. Made agreements he couldn’t keep. Staff at front were robotic and did not seem to be in good spirits ever. Unfamiliar with GAD, nor nursing moms.
