Dr Watson took the time to go over my old sleep study info and my current CPAP downloaded info. Very thorough with every detail of my treatment.

Dr. Watson was very impressive. She listened to me very carefully. She answered all of my questions. I am a college educated intelligent person. She tactfully figured out my knowledge level and explained her comments in answers in very useful ways for me
