Dr. Watanabe has been my primary care physician for over 25yrs. His "bedside manner" is awesome-remembering key events/people in my life and taking the time to connect with me before conducting my physical. He always washes his hands before and after exams, shares high level feedback and solutions. His staff is very professional and efficient. Every year, I consider it a honor to renew my choice with my insurance for him as my primary physician.

Dr. Watanabe is the best that I have gone yo in 26 years. He is knowledgeable, personable, bslues your time, listens to you snd includes you in your options regarding your health. I would recommend him to anyone. I got him by accident because my physician passed away at the same Medical Group. I didn't think I would find a doctor that could replace her and even be better with me personally.

Very caring and sincere. He takes his job seriously. If you need surgery, he will assist the surgeon if you want him there. He has literally saved my life. I trust him and my children always send along a message when I have an appointment with him. They always want to convey how much they appreciate how well he takes care of their mom. He's just a great all around human being.
