I was admitted into the emergency room and Dr. Watt performed my surgery. He checked in with me everyday to see how I was doing. He listened to my concerns and has a great sense of humor. This experience was scary for myself and my family and he helped to put us all at ease. I have to have a colonoscopy and was a little scared but he explained everything and made sure all of my questions were answered. I would recommend seeing Dr Watt.
