My Father is a patient of Dr. Watson's. Dr. Watson is the reason my dad is still with us today. Dr. Watson was very thorough with his diagnosis and treatment. Very straight forward and ready to make his patients better.

Dr Watson treated me (91 yr old male) and got my heart issues balanced out, enabling me to lead a normal life. Dr Watson always treated me with greatest respect; it was evident that I wasn't just another object on which to practice medicine. Dr Watson is a very competent and caring cardiologist. It is without reservation that I highly recommend him!
