Meet The Doctor

Dr. Donna Watson

Dr. Donna Watson is a native Floridian born in Coral Gables and grew up in Dade and Broward Counties. When Dr. Watson was 15 years of age, she was very involved in competitive sports and became an accomplished athlete. During this time, she was involved in a car accident that didn't appear to be detrimental at the time.

However, many months later Dr. Watson was in so much pain that she could not continue with her competitions. After being taken to "The Best" orthopedic in town, she was informed that nothing could be done do to fix her problem. At that point, unwilling to let go of her passion of sports, looked for another option.

Dr. Watson's mother took to her to an older gentleman who was called a "chiropractor". He also was a practicing acupuncturist, which was very rare back then. Within two weeks, she was free of all pain and began competing again. Strongly impacted by this area of medicine, she then vowed to become a chiropractor so that she could give people a chance for a pain-free life in very much the same way she gained back her pain free lifestyle and spinal health.
