A letter to our future patients

Caring for and developing meaningful relationships with each of our patients is a true privilege. This provides the most fulfilling aspect of our work and is the reason for the exciting and important changes I made to my way of practicing. 

Why make a change? 

During my first 15 years of practicing medicine, I experienced first-hand the various changes in medical practice. The most pleasurable practice experiences were definitely when patient quality over quantity was the focus. High quality visits allow for more time with our patients; hence a higher level of evaluation can be achieved, which leads to healthier and happier patients. 

Our model at Watson Family Medicine helps us invest more in our precious relationship with you. We have more time to evaluate you as a whole person, including your environmental and lifestyle influences on your health. We have more time for consultation, education, and follow up support, which is vital to rendering excellent medical care. And we can focus more on preventing and reversing your disease process.

We are directly involved in every level of your care and are better able to put the utmost focus on building a strong partnership with you.

What does joining us at Watson Family Medicine mean for you?

We limit the size of our panels to just a few hundred patients. This allows you to enjoy many important benefits not found in typical medical practices today:

  • Time: Time to be heard, understood, and cared for thoroughly.  
  • Always Dr. Watson. Every visit. Every call. Every time. 
  • Peace of Mind: Sometimes a text, email, or phone chat with one of us is all you need. 
  • Consideration: Same- or next-day office or virtual visits. On time, unhurried and relaxed.
  • Convenience: Easily reach us directly — no call centers. 
  • Health and Wellness: Emphasis on the root cause of illness, prevention, and lifestyle factors.
  • Advocacy: Help navigating and coordinating your care in a complex system.
  • Savings: Save time and expense of unnecessary urgent care visits, hospitalization, and medications.
  • Home visits as appropriate.
  • Annual Lifestyle/Functional Medicine-based Diagnostic Exam: We will gather detailed information on your health and lifestyle and do an in-depth review of your wellness goals — all beyond what a typical insurance-covered annual evaluation includes. We will create with you with a customized plan of care to help you achieve your goals — with an emphasis on the root cause of illness, prevention, and lifestyle factors.
  • Ongoing health support and communication: Throughout the year I will provide you with close monitoring and necessary adjustments, and quarterly follow-up visits to promote and reinforce healthy lifestyle habits. Your support includes health coaching for nutrition and fitness education/coaching. Complimentary Yoga and MixxedFit® classes are each offered twice monthly at our office, and our online nutritionist provides webinars twice a month and is available for private consultations.

By using such a model, it has been shown patients have fewer hospitalizations, less need for specialist referrals, and require less medication, while feeling more in control of their own health.

We are confident our unique practice will redefine your expectations for medical care!
