Daniel Watson MD

Daniel Watson - Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) doctor at Wickersham Health Campus

I find that listening to people is often the most valuable part of the clinic visit. Many times the diagnosis is in the details, and as well, patients want to be heard. By listening, trust and confidence is built which leads to long lasting partnerships in the care of my patients.
