I waited 5 years for surgery on my hand. I didn't like what other Drs. said. I resigned myself to live in pain and get injections. I found Dr. Watts on Health Grades, read his reviews and decided to give him a try. WOW!!! HE ROCKS!! Total blessing being led here. He is a skilled surgeon, has great beside manner, is incredibly knowledgeable, and he's a perfectionist. He listens, is concerned and explains. Never a long wait. Jessica his nurse is the best. His Whole office rocks. Go here FIRST!!!!

I have seen Dr. Watt for two different injuries, and both times his treatment was kind, sensitive, professional, and exact. He has a great connection with his patients (at least, this one), and has always been eager to address concerns, fears, or questions. He is very easy to talk to and listens to you completely. Both times, his treatment led to a full recovery, and I could not be happier with his medical practice.

What an amazing doctor! He really did an amazing job on my knee! Had orthoscopic surgery o n my knee. Came home from surgery and stayed in bed till the next morning. Went to the kitchen with the walker and told my husband... you can get rid of this walker.. my knee is better today than it was before I went in for surgery! I never even needed a pain pill! I can't say enough about Dr. Watt!!!
