I have always been impressed with Dr. Watson' thoroughness and professionalism. I have yet to ask a question about a med or a procedure hat I've wondered about for myself that he hasn't already researched and has an answer for. I have recommended him to others a number of times.

Dr. Watson's staff is always most helpful with anything I ever need for my mom's care. We feel that we are in good hands at South Coast and Dr. Watson has a very patient and caring spirit.

In my one visit, Dr. Watson appeared to be extremely burned out and demonstrated a lack of compassion and empathy. Very disappointed.

The last appointment with the doctor. The nurse took my pressure and my weight. The doctor came in and took my pressure again and change one of my prescriptions. Told me to come back in one month. I did asked him about some other screenings and tests. Above all he is a good doctor, but I did not understand why I came in for my three months check-up for that and ask to come back in one month. I know he has a reason and maybe has some tests for me?

Dr Watson has been my doctor for over 20 years. In the beginning he used to listen and was compassionate. Lately that has all changed. He was rude and did not take my symptoms seriously. I am just on here looking for a new primary doctor but felt compelled to share my experience
