Dr Watt is an amazing doctor. He has great bed side matters. He operated on me a year ago and my recovery was amazing . You do not see that much when dealing with doctors now a days. He takes his time with you and you never feel rushed. If he doesn't think a test is necessary he will not force you to have one. I would definitely recommend Dr. Watt to all my friends. I have never ever ran into a doctor as nice and caring like Dr. Watt is. Before my surgery he yes he called me.

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.
