Dr. Watson is great! I had a biopsy done at her office, and she was so reassuring to me. I ended up needing medical treatment, and yet, I was calmed by her no nonsense personality. She assured me everything would be okay, and it was. I have been seeing her for a few years, and I love how thorough she is. I have been to her Eldersburg and Columbia offices, and both are extremely friendly.

Dr. Watson has been my doctor for the last 5 years. She is compassionate, patient, and honest. I appreciate her level of expertise, and treatment plan options. She’s descriptive with her answers to all of my my questions, and I’ve never felt rushed by her, not ever. Today she used a diagram for an upcoming procedure I will have. This doctor is safe in her practice, and advocates what is best for me. She cares about her patients. Great doctor!

I was properly wearing my mask (due to COVID), and she condescendingly corrected me on how to wear it. When I said that I hadn't received the HPV vaccination yet, it felt like she rudely interrogated me: Is there a reason you haven't received it? It came out years ago. When she checked my chest bump, barely looked at it and said it was just "a skin thing." Wouldn't recommend at all.

Dr. Watson and her surgical team provided excellent care during my recent surgery. I felt well informed and taken care of. She thoroughly explained the process from beginning to end and there were no surprises. I really appreciated her expertise with my situation and her diligence in ensuring a successful procedure.

Dr. Watson is one of the best physicians you will ever have the pleasure of meeting. She is straightforward yet compassionate and caring. She performed my hysterectomy with no issues and she made me feel very well taken care of. She supported me through the entire process and made sure I felt comfortable and prepared. Even when I had a last minute question and called the office, she called me back personally in a matter of minutes. I would highly recommend Dr Watson to anyone.

She was extremely impatient and rude when I asked her questions, (for example I told her my cramps had been getting worse and she just looked at me like I’m an idiot and said “that happens sometimes”), her exam room is unbearably hot and at 28 she told me I really shouldn’t delay having children if my relationship was stable (never mind that I had just started working in a temporary position).

Can Wow!!! Be the description of this Doctor. I can’t express the warmth and care that was given to me. Dr. Watson came highly recommended by my primary care physician. Very warm and considerate. Answered my many questions. I had a pleasant experience in her care.

It's been many years since I've seen Dr. Watson, but she's left me with bad memories of my son's birth. I was deeply concerned when I didn't feel fetal movement for over a day and went to the emergency room. Instead of being greeted with compassion and concern, she snapped at me for not calling the office first. Unfortunately, when it was time to deliver, she was the one who was on call. She was efficient and business like, but left me feeling like I was just a number.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Watson! She was very warm and friendly, spent time talking about what she was doing and why, and really took her time. I am not used to that, so what a pleasant surprise it was to meet with her today. I will definitely be going to her from now on.
