Dr. Watson was amazing! He thoroughly explained everything and never rushed the appointment. I felt as he genuinely cared about my well being and going forward with a more positive outlook on my recovery in the future can happen. I have to follow doctors orders and I'll be on the path to what I have been wanting to achieve! He is a great teacher and good listener! There are not that many doctors that are in the practice to really help and I am so glad I saw him today! Thank you Dr. Watson!

I had high hopes for Dr. Watson's office but found the practice to be unprofessional. The receptionist is a sweetheart but not always professional or discrete. I went in for a physical and back again for a weight loss consultation. I was told prior to the appointment that there is a refundable fee if I decided to not go through with one of the pricey options and then afterwards was told that the fee can only be applied to the weight loss options. I ended up choosing the least pricey one. I went into the office to pick up the pills because they are not available through prescription, the bottle of pills came with no instructions, side effect information etc. It seemed very sketchy and has deterred me from returning

Dr Watson's staff were pleasant and very helpful. After a little mixup with my appt time they delayed their training session to ensure I was taken care of. Dr. Watson took the time to go over all my options and ensure I had a thorough understanding of how each program worked. They did an analysis and ensured I was comfortable with my choice. Dr. Watson even jumped behind the desk to schedule my follow-up while his staff began a training session. I was very impressed with Dr. Watson and his staff. His knowledge and bedside manner remind me a lot of Dr. Ian Smith. Definitely going back!

Dr Watson is amazing! I live in Wayne and have many primary care doctors blacks away. However, i always felt like they disnt listen to me. They could not put two and two together while my condition kept on worsening. Dr Watson is so different! He took the time to understand my symptons, review all my test results and discuss them with me. After seing many dr and Specialists he could not get it right, i highly recommend Dr Watson! Is worth the ride to Norristown!

Not a relatable doctor. Memorably poor bedside manner. Not a bad guy though. I imagine other people may feel differently. Very bad vibes from my experience, maybe he was in a mood not sure, but in general it was an unpleasant visit.
