    Having received a diagnosis of h pylori I was unnerved and anxious, miserable from the meds. Once I visited Dr. Watson and sat down and explained my symptoms and my fears, we developed a plan to rid me of this bacteria and hopefully never have to look back. With my husband by my side, Dr. Watson on my team, and Jesus watching over us all, I have confidence in the outcome.

    Dr. Joshua Watson has been treating me for several months. In our initial meeting, we discussed diet and gastrointestinal issues. He performed EGD and Colonoscopy procedures and his recommendations for fiber and probiotic supplements for my diet have been very helpful. Dr. Watson and the entire medical and admin staff are professional and I recommend them.
