Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Watson gave very important information concerning my health. Up-to-date information. He listened to my concerns & related then to his personal eexperience.
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!
My experience was great! Dr.Watson was very educated on the reason of appointment. I would highly recommend him to family and friends!
I was very happy with the doctor and the nurse at the front desk. Very friendly and comfortable and professional.
He's always professional and kind, he listens and seems to truly care.
He is always nice and listens, as well as small talk if you wish. His assistant is friendly and is always helpful to work around a busy schedule. I do recommend his practice.
Very knowlegible about the Endocrinology associated with obesity. Agressive clinician, who is very patient focused and dedicated
Doctor is very knowledge and passionate and has a great sense of humor.
Very to the matter at hand.
I been coming to this doctors office for years along with my children and he's excellent very respectful and treat you like his own family. I would recommend everyone to give him a visit.
Great Doctor. You can tell he really cares about each and every one of his patients.
Great doctor and a fantastic practice
James is awesome!!
Great medical practice. I would highly recommend to a friend
If you want to quit, Dr Watson will help you.
Do your research outside of ZocDoc...thats all I am saying....
Everything I had hoped for: efficient, direct and to the point without feeling rushed or drug out endlessly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone
Dr. Watson is very nice and easy going. His front desk/nurse is also very personable. There was a bit of a wait even though the office wasn't busy. But overall a pretty good experience.
He is a great doctor that listens to everything you are feeling.
Knowledgable and insightful
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
Very friendly and professional staff! Dr. Watson saw me right away and made the visit quick and easy.
His office has a relaxing atmosphere and I felt comfortable with him and his treatment.
Helpful, informative, and responsive to my concerns
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!
He was very honest and very forthright and easy to talk to
it wasn't what i was looking for
Dr. Watson was great. One of the best experiences if not the best. Thanks dr. Watson for your demeanor.
The doctors office was busy and the receptionist was friendly, but I wasn't seen for almost two hours after my original appointment. Bring a fully charged phone and some headphones for your visit; you'll need them
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!
Thank you for saving my life!
Dr. Watson was extremely informative . He seems to be the type of Dr. that takes his time in explaining things in a very direct understandable way. I did not feel rushed and unimportant. I appreciated Dawn his receptionist , a very lovely woman who has a big bright personality . I look forward to contiunuing a relationship with this office.
Very informative and honest
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.
Dr. Watson and Dawn are both so great!
Really good doctor. Answered all our questions well...
Very very informative! It was great to have a physician give you a really good explanation on what concerns you, and he really took his time without rushing me out the door.
Very Nice Left office not feeling like my weight lost would be a lost cause, gave me helpful information about my body. At my doctors office I was 10lbs heavier then Dr Watson scale that was worth the visit just from that aspect.
Very nice and helpful. I will be back
Dr. Watson is a great doctor who really cares about his patients individually. There was a small problem at the pharmacy in which Dr. Watson needed to call them to confirm and he did so without hesitation and within a timely manner. I would happily recommend him to anyone that is in need of care. His receptionist is wonderful too!
He was very polite and courteous , and was keen in explaining details about the health issues and medications he is providing to maintain good health. He has provided me more confidence in managing my diabetes.
Eh. I still have no idea what's wrong with me... But I guess that's how medicine works... He told me to go get blood work and come back and see him in a week... eh... i still feel like crap...
He had to run out for his daughters appointment once and i had to reschedule. Then when i met him for second time i had to wait for 45 minutes before he showed up from his personal appointment. I felt instead of doing annual physical check up he was more interested in selling me his weight lose products.
Very informative, professional manner. Took alot of time with me to discuss my options.
I like visiting with Dr. Watson and his staff. I am currently trying to lose weight and he is really trying to explain the program to me so I do it properly. Even Dawn, his assistant, is encouraging me and giving me positive praise. They are really kind people. Dr, Watson is very easy going and a good doctor.
this is my first visit. overall he is a good individual. i am yet to see how the treatment works. its too early for me to provide feedback on his treatment methods.
Everything was great
Dr. Watson was great, he spend more than one hour to talk to us and informed us about a medication. He is great, very knowledgable and very friendly. keep up the good job. Thanks
Very kind man. He's knowledgable and easy to talk to.
I was very impressed with the service I received from Dr. Watson. I booked the appointment online here when I couldn't get in to see an orthopedic Doctor. I was worried that I'd be given a prescription and sent away after a quick glance. To my surprise Dr. Watson was very thorough and professional in examining me. He administered a heat treatment, realigned my spine. I was so happy with him that I my husband and I plan to make him our primary doctor.
great experience very knowlegable!!!
This was my first visit in my search for a new PCP....and I was very pleased with the experience.Very good initial experience and a high comfort level for me, as this was really my first time chatting with the doctor about my personal health. What's do I think? Highly professional. Pleasant and personable staff. He's Got the Huxtable factor with very real and current medical experience based on some old school, and, some very reliable, up to date clinical truth. It is shared in an understandable language which is necessary to build trust between a patient and a medical professional. What's Good? Light yet very professional demeanor. I liked the fact that, even though I was a new patient, I did not feel like a number and he took the time to share current information and trends in men's health that seemed as if he had the ability to anticipate my questions, while being patient enough to listen too.
Great Doctor! Helped me see an orthopedic surgeon that day!!!!
Dr. Watson is an excellent doctor. His bedside manner is personal and excellent. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family.
Dr Watson was very informative. He made sure that I understood the process before I made any decisions.
I was very happy i did have to wait a while but it was well worth the wait. I am doing amazing on my weight loss.
