Dr. Watumull is an excellent surgeon. I have used him both for a tendon transfer (hand surgery which restored use of my hands) and for plastic surgery. He is very patient and skilled in what he does. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Watamull is very pleasant, caring, and friendly. He was there for me from pre-op all the way through a year post-op. I am so pleased with my results, and it seemed so important to him that I Be that way. Anything I have done in the future, will receive a consult from Dr. Watamull first!
