Wow!!! Best doctor I’ve ever been to!!! I love Dr. Watson! He is knowledgeable, friendly, and has a very courteous staff. Also, the nurse practitioner, Kelli Biggans, is great too! She was very informative, approachable, and listened to my concerns before giving me answers. Thanks for taking such good care of me.

Dr. Watson is the most professional, knowledgeable, TO THE POINT Doctor one could ask for especially dealing with the heart. I was sent to the ER at Abington Hospital with some minor pain-DR. Watson explained to me what test I needed to receive ASAP and what he though my concerns/problems were. I returned 2 weeks later after the test--he greeted me with confidence and explained how the procedure would be performed. All went GREAT. Left the next day. Thanks you again Dr. Watson- you are the BEST!

Doctor Watson is an exceptional Cardiologist. He is a compassionate doctor who has a calming demeanor and makes his patients feel secure. He takes as much time as needed with his patients and answers all questions and concerns. You never feel rushed with Dr. Watson and his bedside manner is exceptional. He remembers who you are and makes you feel important . This is a trait that is missing in many healthcare practices. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing cardiac care.
