Dr. Watt did a surgical procedure called a cervical fusion doing a C4-C7 ACDF with plating. I had a long history of neck pain extending into both arms and head. He felt this surgery would help me so we just decided "to get on with it". His own self confidence certainly helped me make the decision to do the surgery. Dr. Watt approached me with kindness, understanding, explaining everything with facts and encouragement. Extremely happy Dr. Watt assumed my care!!!

I am a health care provider myself. I had a painful ruptured disk and Dr.Watt did a microdiskectomy for me completely relieving my pain. Very thorough, very pleasant, excellent surgeon. Clinic staff also excellent. Calls to the clinic were surprisingly easy and questions etc. handled pleasantly and accurately. Excellent nursing and Physician Assistant care. I've been recommending their care whenever the opportunity occurs

Dr. Watt is an excellent surgeon! He and his team provided me with stellar care. He explains everything to me as we go and he provided unexpected follow-up care. I had a spinal fusion in my lumbar region and I had heard nothing but bad information about the surgery. My surgery was a complete success and my recovery was quicker than most. Thank you Dr. Watt for giving me my life back! Salli Dell
