Dr. Watts is always wonderful. She's very good at explaining conditions, drugs and health care plans to us in a way that is easily understood. I appreciate this because having a child that is sick is overwhelming enough without all the medical jargon. Her nursing staff is also the best! They are very quick to return calls and are extremely knowledgeable. Dr. Watts and her team took what was a super horrible year for our daughter and helped us see that it was going to be ok. They helped our daughter get better and kept our minds at ease!

Dr. Watts is always communicative, and always there for X. X has seen her 3 previous times in PICU, and she is always playing with him. Get him to take his medicine when he is feeling over whlemed.
