Specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

One Star

Accompanied an elderly relative for a follow-up visit. We waited in the examination room for more than an hour after her scheduled appointment time. His bedside manner is awful! When she tried to discuss an ongoing health issue that had been referred to a specialist, he told her he wasn’t going to discuss it. The man is her primary care physician! He is responsible for overseeing her care. He treated her like her mental capabilities are diminished. They aren’t. Can’t believe geriatrics is supposed to be his specialty.

7 year patient

I find Dr. Watson pleasant if somewhat rushed. He listens and gives an opinion and suggestions. As I have an appt. every 6 months, and have not had the need for a follow up, I do not have an experience with this. The refferals he has given have worked well for the most part.
