Dr. Watson's Care Philosophy

Providing and receiving care in a smaller, more intimate environment has distinct advantages. The staff in smaller offices is often much more connected than in large institutions. This allows for patient and staff familiarity that makes everyone feel more comfortable and insures timely responses to patient's questions and inquiries. I really enjoy the daily interaction with patients and familites who benefit from the care that I provide.
