    Dr. Watson is amazing! He is very thorough and literally saved my life. We often hear how doctors take symptoms lightly or just go by the book; Dr. Watson listened to details of my symptoms even when labs and other things came back negative. If it wasn't for his listening and recommendations for more testing and to how I was feeling he would not have found blockage in my arteries. I am so glad that he is my cardiologist he is truly theeeeee best.

    Dr. Watson is the finest medical professional I have ever seen. He is patient, extremely caring, and the most knowledgeable professional I have known. His bedside manner and general demeanor with patients is superb. He has seen my wife for years for multiple issues including CABG and stents, and she swears by him. We have referred family members to Dr. Watson and they are as pleased as we are. There is no better doctor for you if you have cardiac concerns.
