Dr. Watson and his staff was very courteous and professional. I had laser surgery several years ago and have not had any pain or problems since. I highly recommend Dr. Watson.

I would recommend Dr. Watson. I was suffering with continuous head aches and discomfort related to a MVA. The procedure I had was cauterizing nerve endings in my cervical vertebrae. After recovery, I was able "ease" back into work. It's going on two years now, and I am doing pretty good. Sincerely, Carrie
