Biography & Education

Biography
In my practice I focus on promoting wellness for adults and providing care for a wide range of general outpatient medical problems. I enjoy patients who want to actively participate in their health care decisions and I want them to fully understand their health issues. I encourage lots of questions. I particularly enjoy being a doctor because I get to meet and know so many people and help some of them through difficult times.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr Watson was a clear communicator, but didn't care about my concerns. He treated me as if I was an uneducated patient that was wasting his time!

I have been with Dr. Watson since 1987; he is one of the very best in my experience.

I explained to the provider that I suffer from muscle problems in my back that be very painful. I described the pain as being infrequent, but so bad that it prevented me from working and caused me nausea/sickness. I asked the provider for something that I could take infrequently when the pain gets bad. He declined, suggesting I take Motrin and drink water. Obviously I do that already and it doesn't help.

If I were ever not to recommend Dr. Watson it would be through no fault of his own but only because of the inordinate amount of time someone has to wait to speak with any one at the front desk.
