The Doctors and staff there have tried very hard to help me when my pain was at its worst. They always find time to see me even on short notice and are very compassionate when their patients are in pain. That doesn't mean finding a short term solution. They investigate until they find the problem and try to treat it to give long term relief. It makes me feel like someone else is fighting for my recovery as much as I am.

I had several months of sciatica that my regular doctor and my chiropractor were not able to get better. I saw Dr. Watson and within 3 weeks I had a diagnosis (bulging disc) and was feeling better after he gave me a shot in my back. I was worried about getting a shot but to be honest it didn't even hurt at all. I am thankful I saw Dr. Watson and for his excellent care.
