      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Watkins' 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.
