Dr. Watts performed a laporoscopic gall bladder removal and I was completely impressed. He took time to talk through procedures, possible concerns and was truly concerned about my overall health and recovery. Dr. Watts has a great bedside manner and made sure our visits were not rushed. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Watts saw me on a Friday, assessed my situation and determined that it warranted urgent gallbladder surgery and removal of gall stones from my common bile duct. Saturday the surgery took place. He is very professional, answered all of my questions, was concerned about my pain and overall health and went out of his way to take care of me. I am so grateful for his expertise, his professionalism and his concern for me.
