Patient Comments (2)

Dr Watson seemed bothered by me wasting his time. This was my first time seeing a spine specialist for an issue I felt was important. But apparently it seemed menial to him. I would never recommend him to family or friends.

I was injured in a car Accident roughly 21 years ago and Dr. Watson fused my c6-7. I was 17 years old at the time. I never truly thanked him for the amazing job that he did. I'm 38 today and very active and healthy. He did a wonderful job!
