Dr. Wayne K Watson has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

I had the most disturbing vist with Dr Watson, he did not want to listen to my concerns about the wrong medicine that he had prescribed. Did not like me to question him, got anrgy because I told him I had reserached the mediation after the side effects it produced for me. He said "Patients shouldn't research on thier on because they don't know what they are reading. He is the doctor and he knows best." This was my second visit and it will be my last. I felt bad for the office staff, (he is new to the clinic)you could tell they were very uncomfortable. I do not recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Watson is an arrogant and unkind man. I have worked with specialiced doctors for a while now and I have never seen or heard of any of them treating their patients the way he treated me. He yell and screamed at me and called me names. Every time that I was going to ask a question, he shut me up but, he asked me detail questions about my personal life and no matter what I said, for a strange reason (since I have seen this "doctor" twice in my life), he kept on telling me what he had his mind made up on. I was very confused and surprised by the desease he was diagnosing me with and hurt by the way I was been treated in front of all his staff. When I left that place, I felt dirty and abused and wanted to take a shower and cry. I have been thinking about pressing legal charges on this doctor.
He had been my mother's physician for about 6yrs. He always was wonderful to her. He went above and beyond in diagnosing her as well as caring for her. He even phoned me (out of state) to update me on her condition. We miss him and we would like to know where he's practicing so she can have him back as her physician. All of her elderly friends want him back also!
