Care Philosophy

My goal in life is to make a difference, thus we treat not only the injury or the condition but the patient and his/her family. Staying abreast of current hand surgery knowledge is a crucial component of that goal. Remaining in independent practice provides the means for personalized and low cost care.

Patient Comments (3)
Boise, ID |
Poor poor poor. Very poor communicator. I was anxious to stay outside of the hospital networks,but his care was so marginal at best, that I ended up going back to the hospital network, and after 5 visits with Dr. Watkins, no improvement, two visits with another hand specialist, and I could function after two weeks. Be careful. He will walk out on you if you question him! His staff is not much better in professionalism. Also, his office hours are terrible 9 am to 4:30 pm.
in Boise, ID |
Dr. Watkins knows what he is doing and is quite good at it. When one is dealing with nerves during an operation, it is good to know you have one of the best working on you. My wrist surgery was complicated and here i am today golfing 4 months later with no loss of yardage to my drives.
in Ontario, OR |
Does not take Oregon Medicaid, so people in Ontario, OR are screwed. He needs to start accepting oregon medicaid. He's losing a lot of patients by only accepting Idaho.
