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.
