Horrible experience! Never even got to see the doctor. Even with a TRICARE referral I cant get an appointment. Repeated calls, jump through hoops to try and get them information and they cant even bother to answer the phone of have enough courtesy to tell me they are too busy to see me! At least I wouldn't have spent weeks trying to get an appointment when they obviously have more than enough business! RUDE! RUDE! RUDE! Was just put on hold for almost 30 min and they just hang up on you!

Dr Watson used to be excellent but off the mark badly now. Erratic behavior. Rambles on lately. No examination.
