What People Say About Dr. William Watson, MD
Reply
Very cordial. Explained thoroughly what my procedure entailed. During the procedure (received a local anesthetic) Dr. Watson would tell me before step what he was going to do and what to expect. The total time for my surgery (removed a cyst on my forearm) was about 20 minutes. After 2 weeks the incision was barely noticeable. A follow-up appointment was made quickly.
