Patient Comments (1)
in Pittsburgh, PA |
Dr. Watson was supposed to operate on my bunion and fix a couple hammer toes. I'm not sure what went wrong but my foot hurts 90% of the time. One toe is so twisted I can not longer see my nail and the fat pad in the sole of my foot is gone. I'm now walking on bones and it feels like there're rocks in my shoe. He had me on a scooter for 6 weeks and I did everything he told me.. STAY AWAY!!!!!! wish I would have been warned.
