Chicago Ridge, IL |
Dr. Watson was an excellent surgeon who made sure to keep all his patients needs on top. He makes the procedures seem less terrifying while being completely honest about everything that will transpire.
in Woodridge, IL |
I was diagnosed with a torn labrum after seeking relief for shoulder? pain. Dr. Watson suggested a non-surgical approach including self-therapy and a cortisone shot. I appreciated his good 'bedside manner' and practical treatment for the issue at hand. The staff was friendly and got me in and out of the facility. It's a bonus having x-ray and MRI on premises... Saving time and extra trips other places. Highly recommend.
in Palos Heights, IL |
Dr. Watson is a highly recommended orthopedic surgeon. He will take time to tell you all he can do to help with your problem. I would recommend him to everyone.
Oak Forest, IL |
Dr. Watson is an amazing Doctor and Surgeon. He took the time to listen to my complaints and had genuine concern for me as a patient. He went through non operative treatments with me until they were all exhausted, and only then suggested surgery. He knew I was hesitant about surgery and respected my wishes about trying all non operative treatments first. The time was taken to discuss all pre operative and post operative treatments and he was always available for me to ask additional questions.
in Frankfort, IL |
Dr. Watson has great bedside manners and was very thorough regarding my treatment. His front office staff and medical assistants were very helpful with all of my needs.
