Dr. Watson: Comprehensive Heart Failure Program at Abington Hospital I was diagnosed with Heart Failure a year ago in March 2020. I have been a patient at the Comprehensive Heart Failure Program at Abington Hospital since then. The Dr.s, Nurses and Support Staff have all been exceptional, giving me their time and expertise along with comfort and care throughout this situation. They take into consideration everything including mental health, which I learned first hand can be affected by heart failure. They also take the time to learn about you, your lifestyle, the things you love to do and need to be able to do in order to live a happy life within the scope of your illness. I am forever grateful to all the staff at the Heart Failure Program for helping me be able to get back to my old self and enjoy the things I love to do.

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.
