Dr. Watson performed an emergency debridement on my husband at Palmetto Health Richland to eradicate a dangerous diabetic infection in his abdomen. He thoroughly explained the procedure and put us at ease. His first priority was helping my husband. He even called my mother in law out of town and explained everything to her. Professional. capable, excellent communication skills. #grateful
