Ratings for Dr. Craig Watts
I have been a patient of Dr Watts for almost 20 years. I can honestly say that Dr Watts is by for the most thorough and caring doctor i have even meet!!!!!! Unlike many other doctors, He takes his time to listen to his patients concerns and makes you feel very comfortable. I do agree that the wait time can be long (although a lot better than is was years back) but that's because he listens and accesses every patient with concern and care!!!!! Dr Watts is an incredible Doctor and an amazing man, I highly recomment this doctor if your problem is related to his specialty.
Reading all the comments has been more than enlightening! If you read comments for other doctors you will have a similar experience..they are either loved or hated! Never anything in between....which makes me wonder if doctors are bipolar (moody!) or treat their patients according to wether they like them or not...which would be human I guess! How can a doctor be considered charming caring by some patients but rude & un-caring by others... Everyone agrees on one thing which I do as well...the waiting time shows a complete lack of respect...& should not happen; we are not all retired! he is absolutely thorough but that does not explain a 2 hours wait! SCHEDULING is the problem & I cannot believe that his NICE Staff has not figured out a formula to keep patients from waiting 2 hours! I have friends who see other Rhumato who are thorough & they never wait more than half an hr.. A large majority agree that Dr Watts is extremely competent & has helped so many of us so we are very lucky to have him as a doctor...I cannot help wondering what will happen to all of us when he decides to retire...not too many Rhumato around...it is not a popular specialty...who wants to listen to people complaining about their pain al day long...you really have to be dedicated! Love him but he is definitely mercurial to say the least!
Great doctor if u have a problem he will work until he finds a solution, but very over worked doctor, so it takes a long time for your appt however if u call in advance sec will mark u in and tell u more accurately when to show up for your appt so that u don't have to wait around. However the wait is well worth the expertise advice and help u will get once in to see Dr watts.
Cela faisait six ans que je souffrais d'un ma de pied. C'est le seul qui m'a crue. Il a fait un examen complet pour se rendre compte que la source du mal était mon dos. Je me fous de la ponctualité. Cela faisait six ans que j'attendais un diagnostic. J'adore ce médecin et je ne l'oublierai jamais.
Je suis une patiente du Dr Watts depuis plusieurs années et si je ne l'avais pas eu comme rhumatologue sur mon passage de vie je ne sais pas ce que ma vie serait devenue. Il est un expert dans son domaine et il sait quand il est temps d'agir pour vous aider. Chaque patient a le temps qu'il lui est nécessaire. Il lui arrive de perdre patience mais souvent c'est pour des raisons administratives tel les coimpagnies assures qui harcèlent les patients pour faire compléter des formulaires au détriment de la santé des patients. Ce médecin est dévoué à son métier et jamais avare de son temps. Il a fait d'excellentes références pour mon dossier et comme je l'ai mentionné, il fut une bénédiction pour moi. Son personnel administratif est d'un professionnel exceptionnel et fait preuve de beaucoup d'empathie. Merci Dr. Watts à vous et votre équipe de m'avoir accepté comme patiente car je commence à voir le bout du tunnel.
I know he is an excellent rhumatologist. The clinic was nice and the secretaries too, which is very important. But, I wasn't told that there were more than 2 hours of waiting time in advance and that I could do a phone check-in.... In fact, he was 2h30 late! He answered to his cell phone during my exam, had a (personnal) conversation with his secretary and was kind of rude at first. But he knows his stuff and was very knowledgable and took his time with me (1hour). He sent me for other tests, told his secretary he would see me again soon but he didn't say goodbye or anything to me. I felt a little bit like I was not intelligent enough for him...
