Dr. Watson took care of my very ill husband and he performed a very complicated surgery with lifesaving outcomes. My family and I are so deeply grateful for his thorough daily visits, his spending time explaining and answering all our questions, and giving us his cell phone number in case we had more questions or concerns. He went above and beyond the call of duty. Norma G.
