The wait was long...2.5 hours. When Dr. Watson finally got to me, he was attentive, kind and helpful. I appreciate what he and the Wellness Center do. I was sent there by GA to get a confirmation of my physical and mental conditions. The worst part about the wait was that no one from the staff came to tell us people who were waiting what the hold-up was. Sitting in that little exam room for 2.5 hours with no idea of what was taking so long was quite frustrating. AND WOULD SOMEBODY PLEASE OIL THE HINGES ON THE BIG METAL DOOR NEXT TO EXAM ROOMS 7 AND 8? The screeching noise every time someone went through the door was extremely annoying and stress-inducing. I liked Dr. Watson and am recommending him.

Dr. Watson is a terrible physician with no regard for his patients time. If you have an appointment to see him, you better bring a lunch and a snack, because there is a possibility that you will be waiting for hours to be seen. I have witnessed patients check in at 1 pm and finally get seen at 7 pm. There is also an insect problem in his facility, there were ants, fruit flies and fleas. Outside of his assistant Omar and nurse Morgan, Dr. Watson has got to be the worst physician i have ever experienced.
P.S. He sent my cousin to collection over $2, and they were friends --- he was my uncle's attending physician - and neglected to give him proper care -- he swindled a few people out of their money. He has no morals or ethics, dont be fooled by the persona that he cares about his patients, the only thing he cares about is the almighty dollar bill. I would not ever recommend Dr. Watson for anything except a one way ticket to jail without the possibility of parole.

Cons: overall poor service

I've been seeing Dr. H. Geoffrey Watson since the SSA sent me over for a physical to go with my GA & footstamp application to see if I was able-bodied enough to be required to work while on GA (Dr. Watson handles a lot of County screenings and is very attentive. Once I got through this screening, I asked him about the severe pain and neck/back/shoulder discomfort I was experiencing and he set me up for an appt within 2 weeks). I showed up with no medical insurance or money but he had immediately put me on CMSP (the county medical insurance for indigents) so my co-pay was $0 for all office visits and $0 for all my prescriptions filled conveniently at the pharmacy attatched to the Wellness Center!)

Dr. Watson has always taken time to talk to me about my case, read my xray reports with me, and got me on working medication for once that I could afford.

The only complaint I've had is that it takes around 3 hours from my scheduled appointment time to atually being seen by him; ie, if it is 10:30, I usually see him at 1:30 pm, even when I show up early! He is very busy and overbooked because he is a very good doctor. But there are other doctors at the Wellness Center so I am going to try someone else in his clinic (his father, James A. Watson,'s photo is still hung proudly in the lobby waiting room) that works with him to help offset his huge caseload.

He easily writes referrals for xrays and physical therapy as needed, and they have a phlembotomy lab on the premesis.

For those on GA, SDI, SSI, or other public assistence aid program, this is a great doctor office to give free medical attention at least as good as any insurance backed offices, if not better.

Pros: Attention, Experience, Service, Price, Takes CMSP

Cons: Waiting Time, Long Waits for Appointments, Not All Medication available for CMSP

I am a medical student who worked with G. Watson MD for a month. Being there was inspiring, busy and wonderful. Watson is a caring, competent doctor who serves everyone who needs him. He is, to me, the kind of heroic person that medicine used to be known for (and maybe still should be). He makes great personal sacrifices of time and energy to be available to serve.

Many people who seem to have had experiences with doctors that made them want to hide from medicine have a deep trust in him. He makes a lot of effort to spread awareness about treatable illness that can greatly shorten life and make it pretty miserable, like hypertension, prostate cancer, and smoking.

I admire Dr. Watson greatly and wish him long life and great happiness.
