Dr. Watson is clearly very knowledgeable. His mychart summaries of the visits are very detailed and helpful. I guess I hope to have more communicated to me during my appointment, to make sure I understand before I leave the details of my diagnosis.

Dr. Watson cares about and for his patients. Dr. Watson never rush through his time, he explains everything thoroughly and his friendly demeanor relaxes me while being examined. Our eyes are important it's wonderful to know they matter to the doctor we entrust them to. Dr Watson is a blessing from God.

Dr Watson gave me a lot of confidence in the treatments needed. All questions I asked he explain very very well until I really understood the process and why. Kept asking me what others question I had and any doubts. Took a lot of time explaining making sure I understood and confirm I knew what he was explaining.

External Professional Relationships
Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
