What People Say About Dr. Richard Watson, MD
Reply
Does not take patient advice into account. Has generated a long list of medication that is only growing patient symptoms. Effectiveness is near none with respect to the amount of visits Dr. Watson reccommends.

Dr Watson tracked my condition closely for years and was spot on for the timing of my surgery. He was right there when I was brought into the ICU post surgery and played a big part in my quick and successful recovery.
