Patient Reviews (3)
in Jacksonville, AL |
Very thorough and attentive, not in a hurry. He didn't just treat me like a number. He was very caring & concerned about my health. He's not a Dr. who believes in just giving me another pill to mask the pain, which I really appreciated! He's very knowledgeable about fibromyalgia & I learned some things I wasn't aware of. He asked if he could pray for me, which I really loved about him! He acknowledged that the Lord is the healer & he's only the instrument! Looking forward to my next appointment!

I have Degenerative arthritis and Fibromyalgia .All he wanted to do was a sleep study and,pray for me.I appreciate and like him praying for me,but I went to get some kind of treatment and he wouldn't do anything
Collinsville, AL |
I would not recommend Dr. Watterson because he pushes his opinions onto patients. If the patient has a complaint or concern he gets rude and dismisses them. And I am speaking from personal experience.
