what a wonderful story. They just don't make them like that anymore. Today it is nothing but greed, one doctor refers you to another doctor and on and on. some charge medicare ridicoulsly (fraud) some just don't want to deal with people and have their nurses do most of the work and then walk in and out in two minutes and still charge over $175.00 for consultation. I can invision the simplicity of the town and its charm. All Mayberry like but It sounds wonderful. God Bless Him.

I had the privilege of having Dr. Watson as our family doctor in my younger years. He has to be the most down home sincere man you would ever want to meet. I can not think of a better person deserving this honor.
