My appointment with Dr. Jerry Watson was very informative. He went over my medical history and answered all of the questions that I had. Dr. Watson set me up with some tests and lab work to check on my current condition. I will be seeing him in a few weeks to go over the results.

My husband and I regard Dr. Watson as an excellent cardiologist who is very patient focused and caring. He has implanted a stent in both of our hearts. My husband was in very bad condition: and met Dr. Watson in the Grand Strand Emergency Room after being transferred by a "cardiologist" who had done a catherization, but didn't know what to do. After first considering open heart surgery, Dr. Watson successfully implanted a stent instead saving his life. God Bless Dr. Watson and his staff.

Dr. Watson became my husband's Cardiologist in 2008 when he had open heart surgery in Grand Strand, and he has been great.. He always has a way of always making you feel better. He takes the time to explain everything so that you understand it. He came my Cardiologist about 2 months ago when my Primary care Doctor was concerned about a test result & I told him I want to see Dr. Watson * no one else. I would recommend Dr. Watson to anyone who wants a caring & exceptional doctor.
