Patient Reviews (4)
Albany, NY |
She is a very rude and aggressive person. Told me repeatedly that I'm fat and she can't see things well on ultrasound. This last appointment she told me my baby was going to die because I'm not checking my blood sugar 4 times a day. She has the worst approach ever and does nothing to help just make matters worse. I refuse to see her again.
Albany, NY |
Worst bedside manner, no compassion, does not explain anything, and condescending. Worst experience I've ever had with a Dr.
in Albany, NY |
I have had numerous pregnancy losses and Dr. Watson seems to not care one bit as she engages with mee during this one. She has no bedside manner, and doesn't explain ANYTHING she is doing during an exam. When you ask questions every answer is snarky and condescending. I was very disappointed. She must be skilled or I don't know why the practice would keep her.
Watervliet, NY |
Dr. Watson is alarmist, over-reactive, and insensitive. She did nothing but cause anxiety and fear, without an ounce of bedside manner to ease the blow. Her approach to medicine is outdated and inappropriate. She jumps to the worst case scenarios and associated interventions, causing a series of reactive and over-the top measures to be taken. Her patient consult (Penny) is one of the rudest, most condescending people I've ever met. Neither should have any business practicing medicine.
