Dr. David Watson spent most of his youth in Arkansas and earned his undergraduate degree in zoology from the University of Arkansas. He then attended medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. He graduated in 1988 having received the Elvin Shuffield Award in Excellence. In 1992 he completed his internship and Residency at St. Joseph Hospital in Denver, Colorado.
Dr. Watson’s private practice career started in this very office when he joined Dr. David Ricca and together they created a practice that cares for patients as well as staff as if they were family. After Dr. Ricca’s untimely death in 1996, Dr. Bruce Dorr joined the practice and the two of them continued to build our thriving practice using the same values with which it began.
Dr.Watson is credentialed by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He is skilled in traditional pelvic surgery as well as DaVinci robotic surgery, being co-chairman along with Dr. Dorr of the robotics committee at Littleton Adventist Hospital. He became certified as a BioTE medical practitioner in 2014 and now provides hormone pellet therapy to both men and women.
