Gordon Watson, MD

“I have always had an interest in new technology and actually started my career wanting to be an engineer. I enjoy how technology can be applied to help patients. Cardiology has a blend of acute and chronic patient care where the use of new technology can improve patient’s length and quality of life. I have been fortunate to be able to develop long term relationships with my patients and to help them with their heart disease and work to reduce their risk for this very
common medical illness.”

“My family moved to Tucson in 1970 and I attended Canyon del Oro High School. I consider myself a Tucson native. My wife and I both attended the University of Arizona. I raised 3 boys who have all attended the U of A. We are avid U of A basketball fans. I am blessed to have been able to practice cardiology for 23 years and to give back to the Tucson community where I live and raised my family.”
