Dr. Watson is a very knowledgable, friendly doctor who truly cares about his patients. He listened very intently and patiently to a long list of symptoms and information I presented, and he came up with excellent diagnoses based on treating me holistically, not just as a doctor trying to pawn me off with the latest meds or as someone just trying to shuffle me through his office. I would highly recommend Dr. Watson.

Dr watson and his staff have been taking care of me for 3 years and I have nothing but good to say about him and his nursing staff! He always makes sure Im in and out no hold ups and always helps me not only physically feel better but emotionally as well! Great Doctor!

This is the most disappointing doctor-patient relationship I've had in 40 years. It's like going to Radar O'Reilly from M*A*S*H. Dr. Watson followed in his father's footsteps, attending Vanderbilt medical school as a legacy and then joining his father's practice. (Dad was an orthopedist who's since retired). Dr. Watson communicated poorly, preferring to stare at his computer and make funny noises with his mouth. I had little idea what was going on. Lousy staff, too.

My first/only experience with Dr. Watson. He entered the exam room with an irritable expression, an annoyed tone, and made no eye contact throughout our interaction. I had difficulty breathing but was dismissive as What else do you have other than a cough? I had to repeat my symptoms twice in full to him. He burped repeatedly, He made small talk of my unrelated treatment I had earlier under his father (ever heard of HIPPA???), and his office staff were just as wonderful. Unprofessional quack.
