Patient Comments (3)

Dr Watt diagnosed my knee injury as arthritis. When I took the same MRI he reviewed for a second opinion, the 2nd doctor saw no evidence of arthritis and instead showed me where the bone bruise was. Being 30 years old, I was quite surprised to hear that I had arthritis from Dr. Watt.

Dr Watt replaced both shoulders in a six month period. Both surgeries were successful and the pain was very manageable. His staff are available and also knowledgeable. I could sleep for the first time in several years!
