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!
