I have seen Dr. Watt for years, he is an awesome Doctor. He makes me feel safe and confident that he will be able to heal my eye condition. He always lets me know what he will be doing to take care of my eyes and asks if I am in agreement.

Excellent. I had a serious eye issue and he performed surgery and fixed the problem. At one point I woke up in severe pain and he was very empathetic and met me at his office on a holiday weekend to alleviate the pain. I could have lost the vision in that eye but I didn't and for that I'm eternally grateful. Thank you. I can't say that enough.

Did not like his manner at all. Walked into office looking at file and did not even look at me. Talked to the flies in his hand. Was very sarcastic. Very dismissive,. Reminded me repeatedly that he was board certified. Did not want to spend any time explaining anything. He seemed to feel it was beneath him to have to explain anything. I told staff that I refused to see him again, and wanted another doctor when I returned.
