I would not go to anyone else for a foot problem. I had severe issues due to degenerative arthritis and needed a fusion in one ankle and a rebuild of the other. I am back on my feet and doing really well. Thank you Dr. Watson and team. I appreciated all your time and support.

Henderson, NV |
Keep trying to leave my honest negative interaction with this doctor and it disappears. He ruined my foot, did surgery on my foot that ended being a hack job. Had to have another competent doctor fix my foot. He unnecessarily cut my achilles to help with stretch while healing and cut it completely!! Went in for a broken foot and he said it was just arthritis. In the recovery room, he admitted to my spouse that he removed a piece of bone that was floating around. AWFUL!!!

Las Vegas, NV |
Dr Watson is awesome!!!!! Staff at desert in location terrible and the reviews are true horizon location awesome service love dr Watson only reason I still go
in Henderson, NV |
I have had two major foot surgeries, a year apart, performed by Dr. Watson. Based on the success of my first surgery, where Dr. Watson had to go in and repair considerable damage performed by a previous Doctor on my left foot, I went back to him to perform virtually the same surgery on my right. I found Dr. Watson to be highly professional, and fully explain the problem, the surgery, and the recovery process. Additionally, the follow up visits were at the same high level of professionalism.
