I was very pleased with my visit to the Heart Hospital. From the moment I walked in, to the staff, to the nurse practitioner, and the Dr. It was ... everybody was awesome. It's a very good experience. Thank you.

Dr Watt is a VERY NICE man! He was extremely engaged and interested in me. Great conversation!
January 02, 2020
I have no complaints about Dr. Watt at all. I think he's a great person and a great doctor. Yes, I would recommend him to my friends and anybody, you know, that would need a doctor. I have no fault with you. I enjoy his company. He's pleasant. He's easy to be with and I can't see anything bad about him. He to me he's one of the best doctors I've ever had. I guess that's all I have to say tonight. Thank you.

I gave a positive response to all the questions. Everything about my appointment was on schedule. Minimal wait time, procedures done promptly, time with doctor was adequate and professional and I exited the building in a timely and positive fashion. Thanks.

Yes, I would like to say that Dr. Watt and his nurse practitioner that was with him yesterday, and also the nursing staff that was there from the registers all the way up. I guess I couldn't be any more pleased. They were had all the time in the world to sit down and answer questions and give us feedback. So, you know, keep up the good work. Thanks a lot. Bye.

I would just add to the questionnaire that I feel Dr. Watt was genuinely concerned with helping me and was genuinely interesting in providing me with an opportunity to review my health and ordered studies that I think will give me a better picture of my health and for that I appreciate his care, thank you.

As of this time the facility and Dr. Bruce Watt, to me has probably been the best specialist I have ever seen.
October 17, 2019
I'm very pleased with the care I received.... being new to SD, I was happy that I was referred to Dr. Watt and this place... I do believe he genuinely cares for me and his patients, relaxed atmosphere and is totally interested in you by listening, answering questions, and asking if you understand what he is saying.. thank you for the care you show your patients!
August 29, 2019
I appreciated that Dr Watt asked questions about myself and family which made me feel like he cared about me as a person, not just a patient.

The encounter was great. Everybody was very helpful. I'm very pleased that I went. Thank you.
August 15, 2019
I couldn't be happier with Bruce Watt for the last 17 years. He's a true professional at what he does. So the only other thing I would like to know is I haven't heard back to find out when my stress test would be scheduled. But it hasn't been that long, it was just a week ago. So, that's it. Thank you.
August 07, 2019

You know seems like a wonderful Hospital Dr. Walker's seems like a wonderful doctor, but I'm still waiting for him to tell me what he saw on that echo cardiogram from the VA hospital that he got. He was supposed to look at. Sure would ove to know what he thought about that. Other than that great.
April 30, 2019
Yes, I had a 12:30 appointment. I showed up at 12 for registration. It was for a stress test. I spent hours in the waiting room waiting for the test, waiting for different parts of the test. I finally got out of there in 10 minutes to 5 on a test that should have lasted probably an hour and a half. I let the physician's assistant know I think that probably you've got a problem with scheduling. So that's all I have to say.
April 29, 2019
I just wanted to say everybody was good at explaining everything, and taking care of me, and making sure everything was done correctly. So, I greatly appreciated what was done to help me out. So, thanks a lot.
April 22, 2019
He was wonderful and we really love them. Yeah, and you did a good and the guy that operated on it does a great job. Yep.

For me having to be seen last minute, the staff was very efficient at having the paperwork in order. Of which I know is the reason the visit went so well along with the very nice staff.
