Dr Watson is very knowledgeable, is very responsive to any questions you ask of him, and answers thoroughly. Both my wife and I had heart procedures diagnosed....and treated by Dr Watson and we're both happy with our decision(s) and would not change anything about our relationship with him and his staff.
in Marana, AZ |
Very capable - asks questios appropriate to the visit, answers my questions in a way I understand,if I'm unsure he will explain further. Has a great sense of humor, which I find a very good quality, I'm relaxed and more at ease answering questions.
in Oracle, AZ |
I contemplated writing this review but thought other patients should know he is very cold. Treated us like we were just a number, maybe it's not his father as the patient but it is my father. Rarely made eye contact, sat at the keyboard with his back to us. When I did ask a question he seemed irritated, I do not recommend this treatment to anyone.
