My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Watson. We admire him as a doctor and feel he has given us excellent care. His nurse and staff are always accommodating to our needs and have always worked us in to their daily schedule, if it is warranted. ( And it has been more than once) We respect him and would not hesitate to recommend him.
