- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.
- 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.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I have been a patient of Dr Watts for 4 years. When he was with UC, the reviewer was correct...the staff was horrible. Now that he is in another health care system, things are much different. Dr Watts is a brillant diagnostician. He accurately diagnosed a less than obvious reason for loss of bone mass and has been treating me successfully ever since. His caring doesn't stop when you leave the office. He has called me hours later with more thoughts and even put me in touch with another patient who was taking the same medication. I think the world of Dr Watts (and so do many other professionals as well as patients) and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone
The office makes it impossible to communicate with you.They have no respect for your time. The staff is nasty. Bad, bad communications. Rude rude rude. No one returns calls. No follow up. The doctor is cold. Apparently he tries to control everything--including how operations run. He's doing a horrible job on that front. I will never ever go back to this office. They are incompetent and secretive and never helpful. They could care less about you, the patient, your health and your time. Stay away.
