It is hard to find an excellent doctor in the Panhandle of Florida, but Doctor Watt is one of the finest I have ever had. I have had three surgeries, both hands and a shoulder. Both have had outstanding results. Trigger finger was removed and no signs of it returning, a bone spur on my shoulder with repairs to tendons all done without hardly a scar. I would not even consider going to someone else. One of the best in the country and i have gone to some excellent places like Henry Ford and Duke

The best experience I’ve ever encountered with any Dr. I came from Memphis after having an accident to Destin. Called on Friday had an appointment on Monday and surgery scheduled on Tuesday, the surgery center even called and had us come in earlier as Dr Watt was ahead of schedule. Dr Watt and his staff are so friendly, they treat you like family! Dr Watt is hilarious, his bed side manner not only keeps you laughing but makes you feel at ease and comfortable from the moment you meet him!!

I have used Dr. Watt for a trigger finger and again for carpal tunnel release. Dr. Watt has been wonderful in addressing any issues I've had.

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!!!
