Excellent doctor. great manners; very professional. Takes time to listen, which isn't common these days, thanks to government intrusion into the medical industry, where doctors get 15 minutes to talk to the patient. Very little waiting time in the lobby and the exam room. We are very happy to have found a decent and caring cardiologist.

I was a complete wreck going to a cardiologist for the first time but Dr. Watson eased my fears. He explained what my test results were and showed me on a heart model exactly what my problem was. I would definitely recommend Dr. Watson, he has an excellent "bedside manner".

Six years ago I had an Aortic Valve Replacement and a Triple Bypass operation at Grand Strand. Dr. Watson has been my Cardiologist now for 6 years. He is easy to talk with and has a very caring and attentive staff. They provide a very relaxing appointment for which I am always grateful.
