Ratings for Dr. Edward J Watson
Dr. Watson and his staff were with me through my first pregnancy and it was a wonderful experience. I never had a single issue. Appointments were easy to make, I was always seen promptly, they were friendly and thorough. I felt well taken care of and always at ease.
I have a very bad taste in my mouth regarding this doctor. When I was 19 I went to Dr. Watson as I was pregnant with my first child. I had called the office and gone in because i felt that something wasn't right. I was 26 weeks at the time. I went in, got an ultrasound and was told my son had no heart beat. Moments after relaying this devastating and life changing news to me he then said well i have to go to the hospital for an emergency delivery, He then proceeded to tell me in a rushing manner my options as if I could comprehend anything at that moment. Then just left the room, I was then alone, no staff came to check on me and I was just sitting there devastated with this news. I would and will never go back to this doctor nor would I ever recommend anyone to see him if they don't have to.
I happen to love Dr watson ...after him waiting in the hospital with me to deliver my 2 still borns in a row on his day's off ....He delivered 3 beautiful girls for me .... He always made sure that he ordered testing when needed and saw me as soon as I felt something might be wrong to calm my nerves and make sure i was at ease . I will forever be in Dr watsons and Janet's debt !! For the 3 beautiful , healthy girls they helped me to have .... Nataliyah , Laightan , and our Aaliyah .... Thanks , for reading , Heather Rodriguez :}
This Dr does is very direct. if its something that you think you cannot handle then he might not be the dr for you. if you want to know the truth about what is going on and not get bs'd around the subject to avoid hurting your feelings, then schedule your appointment now. the staff is extremely down to earth and will be there to joke with you and/or sympathize with you if you wish. i have never seen any of them with an attitude or being rude to a patient. they are always accomodating and appear to get along with each other which makes for a comfortable atmosphere. getting back to the dr. if he tells you that you are overweight, he is well within his right to tell you that. if you are struggling to have a baby and are overweight, that might very well be the reason. "stop eating those twinkies" as he told me before i lost over 30 lbs. and then getting pregnant wouldn't be such a challenge.
This doctor has very poor bedside manner, I have never been seen on time- averaging 20-25 minutes late. Whats interesting is that the care his office provides is different for every patient- some get significantly more ultrasounds then others, and one of my friends recieved what to expect when you're expecting from them, and I had to ask to have it. He does have a dry sense of humor-that in my opinion borders on offensive-he has made several "weight" comments to myself and my friend-not something you say to a sensitive pregnant woman unless there is a medical reason to discuss weight. I was running a very high fever early in my pregnancy and called THREE times to try and get a hold of one of the doctors to see if my baby was in danger- no one ever returned my phone call. Other staff and secretaries are very unfriendly. I have had 4 friends who have been to this office and do not like them-do yourself a favor and look for a different doctor
Been seeing him for a good 8 years now.. he delivered my son and is overseeing this pregnancy now. Calm and friendly with a dry sense of humor, he remembered me when I woke him up at 10am on a Sunday with panic pregnancy symptoms. Always takes the time to explain what's going on and tells you flat out how much to worry and why or why not. Routine appointments schedule weeks in advance, but more urgent problems are taken immediately. He maintains calm competence during the most challenging times (I had a rough delivery) and when I check internet sources, his knowledge is always sound and very up-to-date.
Doctor listened to me but his diagnose was made to soon. Last time I had GYN examination was year ago and he didn't bother himself to do it (he didn't talk about that at all!!!). He just listen what I said and even didn't pay to much atention to the papers I brought with me from another doctor. And finaly he let me know he is in a hurry. Thats very unethical!Plus even I said clear I don't want treatment method he is offering me he was pushing it till I got of from the office. Resume: I waste my time and my money because I didn't get any new information about my condition (I could read that on Internet for free); I didn't get my anual GYN examination (so I have to set apointment with another doctor). I wouldn't ever go back to that office and I wouldn't recomend this doctor to anybody.
