My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Watson for a couple years. We are always seen by our appointment time. His staff is very nice , especially his nurse whom I don’t recall her name. If you’re looking for a cardiologist, I would highly recommend Dr. Watson.

Dr. Watson is always very thorough and really seems to care about his patients. I never have to wait long after check in and Dr Watson never seems rushed. He spends as much time with me as I need. He has a very pleasant demeanor. Wish I didn't need a heart Dr but since I do I hit the jackpot with Dr Watson.

Very comforting visit, I find Dr. Watson to be extremely knowledgeable in his field but more so he is very personal when he speaks with you he explains it into layman‘s terms that makes you feel comfortable. He is willing to listen and take his time and understands the patient’s concernsIn my book he is in the top of his profession.

Dr. Watson always listens carefully to you. It is clear that that he has your best interests at heart. When you ask him a question, it is my experience, he will give you an honest answer even though it might not be what you want to hear. At the risk of overloading his schedule, I strongly recommend him for your cardiovascular needs.

I would recommend Dr. Jerry Watson to anyone looking for a heart and vascular physician. He is very thorough and knowledgeable. He takes time to explain and answer any questions the patient might have. I trust him to take care of any situation that might arise concerning my heart health. In my opinion, he is one of the BEST.
