Founded by Dr. David Watson
Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment Center was founded by Dr. David Watson. He has participated in over 400 clinical trials for the treatment or prevention of Alzheimer’s disease over the past twenty-six years and equally important, is considered one of the top leaders in this field. He is a Certified Clinical Trial Investigator and presently serves as Principal investigator on numerous clinical trials for Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Watson first became interested in treating and hopefully one day finding a cure for this disease while caring for his Grandmother who suffered with Alzheimer’s disease. Subsequently, he has lost several family members to Alzheimer’s. Dr. Watson has dedicated his career to finding a cure and is one of the most passionate individuals in this cause.
More importantly, Dr. Watson makes our atmosphere here unlike any doctor’s office you have been to. We take as much time as the patients want and need, so that they, and their loved ones, feel comfortable, respected, and loved.
