Ratings for Dr. David R. Watt
I have been a patient of Dr. Watt for almost nine years now. He is treating me for WMD in my left eye. I travel approximately 60 miles round trip to the Annapolis office not out of necessity but because I chose too. There are other specialist closer to me, but I elect to go to Retina Specialist in the Annapolis office because the staff and physicians are so friendly and professional. I have a severe phobia for needles, and you can imagine the fear I must have of receiving an eye injection. To help me cope with having the injection, Dr. Watt puts me at ease by making small talk about other issues, and before I know it I've haf the injection. Dr. Watt has a genuine interest in his patients. He asks me how I'm doing and if I have any questions or concerns regarding my condition. I wouldn't go to any other retina specialists.
Stay away from this guy. His staff of med assistants are rude and will not answer questions. They work an assembly line and if you stop them to ask a question they clearly don't know and are afraid to ask anyone. They don't introduce themselves and don't explain what they're doing. You don't get to see Watt until the end of the assembly line process. He does not send a complete medical report to the referring Doctor. Go somewhere else
I had an emergency retinal detachment surgery performed by Dr Watt and he was the most rude, arrogant, and despotic Dr I ever had. The performance of the surgery required a new surgery and left a large scar tissue that had to be removed afterwards. He made me wait 1 hour to be seen after surgery and was very uncaring, rushing to finish the appointment, and avoided answering my questions and concerns. He is not only incompetent but his personality makes him the most unsuited to be a Dr who is meant to be compassionate, kind, and helpful.
very preemptive; interrupts patient frequently; resents answering questions about diagnosis; very little explanation of diagnosis; can be very sarcastic; rather arrogant; reminds patient that he is Board Certified, and therefore an expert above quesitoning; spends as little time as possible with patient; would not recommend
