Complete faith in Dr.Watson..he has provided successful treatments for my back and side pain but quickly referred me when he explained I was candidate for surgery..

I have went to Dr. Watson for at least four years. I had a herniated disc and could hardly walk, stand or sit for very long. He used his expertise in giving me an epidural injection in my lower back to allow me to be able to heal and go back to all of my duties . Since then I have had at least 2 more . He is a very caring physician that wants to see his patients back to your normal lives. I have complete confidence in his abilities . He does a fantastic job!

I am not a patient, Dr. Watson treated my Mom. I am writing this review on her behalf. She had been suffering from lower back and leg pain for months. She saw Dr. Watson today (28 Jun), got a shot in her lower back and is walking pain free now! My Mom was very nervous about this but Dr. Watson and his staff made her very comfortable and relaxed. I can't tell you how happy she is and how happy it made me! Thank you Dr Watson and thank you to your staff!

We discussed my history and current pain. Dr. Watson made a couple of recommendations, which I considered. We moved forward really fast and I received much needed relief!
in Jerseyville, Il |
Dr. Watson was very informative during the testing he was doing on me. He answered all my questions and was very helpful.
in Edinburg, IL |
Dr. Watson took care of my back problem when no one else could do anything for me. I like his bed side manner. He talks openly and to the point. My family likes him and how he has treated me. He genuinely seems to care about my problems and takes the time to explain and make me feel more comfortable about the situation.
