Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Watchmaker "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."

We called the office requesting an appointment for a second opinion. We were called several weeks later and told the doctor did not want to get involved with our situation. Obviously the office staff got the wrong information needless to say precious time has been lost we must start all over now.
