Where our data comes from - The data you see on providers' Healthgrades profiles comes from both the provider and public sources. The Top Care Areas section uses public data from billing claims that providers submit to insurance companies. That data is filed nationwide on behalf of the provider to either the government or a private health insurance company.

How we evaluate our data - Patient volume is analyzed by provider and compared nationally with all providers who perform the same procedure, or treat the same condition. We organize the volume data in percentile ranking from 'may perform' for the lowest claims volume to 'Very High' for the highest claims volume data. For a given condition or procedure, performance categories are defined based on 80%, 90%, and 95% confidence intervals from the average patient volume for all providers in our database. Providers identified as ‘may perform’ do not have sufficient volume for Healthgrades to create a statistical evaluation.

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!

Kept my husband alive and functional for many years.

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.
