      We are focused just on hand and upper extremity problems. Dr. Watchmaker is board certified and fellowship trained. Our philosophy is to educate patients on their treatment options and plan the proper treatment together. Our office is 'high-tech' yet we don't let technology interfere with patient-physician communication. Many of our patients come via word of mouth and our goal is to have every patient experience be worthy of those kind words.
