Dr. Watson was the 3rd Orthopedic foot specialist I has seen in six months. I had given up hope and my foot had been in pain every day until Dr. Watson properly diagnosed and treated my ankle. I have been pain free since my appointment. I am so grateful. I wish I saw Dr. Watson first. I will only go here from now on. My highest compliments and recommendations!

Dr. Watson diagnosed my Achilles tendon problem accurately and prescribed a solution that was both appropriate and effective. He made me feel like a valuable customer and responded to all my questions and concerns regarding both my condition and the proposed solution. Healthcare doesn't get any better than this - at Desert Orthopaedic Center!

Dr Watson is a true professional based on my short visit with him today. As a cash customer, I was satisfied with his fee and extremely satisfied with his recommendation for treatment of my severely damaged foot. I will make an appointment for treatment as soon as new insurance can be obtained on Jan 1, 2020. The only reason that this visit did not receive 5 stars was due to not being shown to a treatment room until an hour after my Appt time in spite of arrival an hour prior to my Appt time. Obviously, this Dr., like most, considers his time to be more valuable than his patients and chooses to over book in order to maintain efficiency.

I first saw Dr. Watson in 2009 for a problem with my ankle. Ten years later I am seeing him for a different condition with my ankle. His staff is always responsive, understanding, knowledgeable, and efficient. In addition to being an expert in his field, Dr. Watson always explained every step of my treatment and answered every question until I understood completely. He is professional and understanding.I highly recommend him.

Fantastic Job... Dr.Watson came highly recommend by my primary physician and he did not disappoint. He staff was very kind and courteous. Dr. Watson spent the time with me at each appointment answering my questions. Great bedside manner and very professional. I would highly recommend him. He also have several locations to make it easy to schedule appointments. I would have given him a 10 star rating if it was available!

A consultation regarding a chronic condition for which Dr. Watson assessed and provided options. He emphasized doing no surgery, as I am in no pain, and doing yoga or Pilates and swimming. This became my chosen option. Thanks for the honesty Dr. Watson.

Due to Dr Troy Watson’s fine surgery skills, I am able to enjoy life’s activities without pain. He has completed successfully two surgeries which is rebuilding my broken heel and replacing my damaged ankle. He is honest, knowledgeable, concerned and relates well to his patients. The best foot surgeon in Nevada.

Dr Watson came highly recommended which was the original reason I chose him for my ankle fusion. After going through several pre-op visits, the actual surgery, and multiple post op visits I see why he was so highly recommended. It became very apparent why he and his team were so highly recommended. I absolutely made an excellent decision choosing Dr Watson and his team of professionals who I think very highly of. Thank you for all your collective knowledge and care.

Dr. Watson and Associates were very thorough. Although I came with MRIs from Steinberg Diagnosis, and referral from my primary care Physician; additional Xrays were taken at DOC. Discussion was thorough as well as the plan of action for both my ankles. My questions were answered, my concerns were heard and responded to. I did not feel rushed. Excellent first visit.

All of my visits with Dr. Watson, have been very positive, uplifting, encouraging and supporting. He is, "hands down" the best foot surgeon I have ever had, and I have had several. My toe, after having hammer toe surgery, looks beautiful! Thank you, Dr. Watson.

Dr Watson did an ankle replacement 18 months ago. I have no pain. I can walk and be active again. I have range of motion and can even rotate my ankle and stand on my toes. I am so pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Dr Watson and his staff.

Dr. Watson was referred to me by Dr. Steven Thomas who said he was one of the best surgeons in the U.S. I agree since he performed five surgeries between both feet and my knee. Everyone in his office is very professional, great care.

Dr Watson and his staff are professional and caring. The outcome of my surgery was very good. I would highly recommend him. However, The front office staff that checks you in at the horizon location could use some improvement. They are not very friendly or helpful. They need to improve their customer service skills.

I have had two foot surgeries with Dr. Watson. What this kind, caring and compassionate Surgeon, and his staff, have done for me is amazing. I wouldn’t be walking pain free today if it wasn’t for Dr. Watson. I can’t thank him enough for allowing me to be one of his patients. My experience truly had the best outcome thanks to this wonderful man.

Dr Watson is the best. About 6 months ago I fractured my ankle pretty badly. After 3 total surgeries - first to repair damage with plate & several screws, second to "tweak" something he didn't like (which was fully explained to me as a possibility), then the last one to remove the large screw that stabilized joint during healing (the "tweak"), weeks of non weight bearing/PT/finally weight bearing - I am walking almost normally! The entire ordeal was made easier by Dr Watson & staff. Thank you!
