Dr Watson and his staff are amazing. He did my Achilles’ tendon repair and he was very nice and caring. He even called me the night of my surgery to make sure I was ok. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing surgery.

Dr. Watson is an excellent physician and I would highly recommend him. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, answers all questions, and, along with his staff, is concerned with a great outcome for you. After my broken ankle, followed by surgery and extensive therapy, I can now do anything I could before the accident.

My pleasant experience started as soon as I entered the door. We were in and out in a short time. Staff was kind and professional. I was very pleased with Dr. Watson he explained everything carefully and to the point of understanding. He answered all my questions in a way that was understandable and detailed. He gave me options on my care and let me take time to decided what I WANTED to do. I am so pleased with my choice to go see him and look forward to continued care with him.
