Dr. Watson was great. I was there for a second opinion and he came up with a different diagnosis and was able to do something to actually help me!! My only complaint was the wait time. I was taken back into the room in a relatively timely fashion, but then spent a lot of time waiting in that room....more

I was recommended to Dr.Watson by my neighbors. My daughter had a bump on her foot that was causing her pain. He diagnosed her and took care of her problem in office. He talked us thru everything while doing the procedure and even made it a learning experience for both my daughter and myself. ...more
