Wonderful Surgeon
I am a 73-year-old male. Dr. Watters did a full knee replacement for me on 8/4/22. If I didn't know that I had had a knee replacement, I would think I had my "real knee" only without the pain. I can do all the things I used to before the knee went bad. (Golf, mow grass, work every day). Dr. Watters is knowledgeable, kind, and caring. He also has a great personality and bedside manner. I will be forever grateful and thankful to him.

One year out...
After one year I am still super happy having chosen Dr Watters to do my surgery. I saw Dr Watters as a second opinion and after seeing him and his team I was much more comfortable and much more knowledgeable about the process. His bedside manner was awesome and he and his team explained everything in detail and really helped me understand the procedure and what it would entail. I never felt rushed or felt that I was wasting their time with my questions.. While I really never want to do that again I'd go back to Dr Watters in a heartbeat.

Great experience with my 79 year old mom
Very efficient. We were taken back on time and the triage nurse was super patient as she got the information from my mom who has Alzheimer’s. We were immediately taken to X-ray and then seen by Dr. Watters. He too was so patient with Mom. He explained to both of us in laymen’s terms about her problem and offered solutions. His PA was very sweet and gentle while injecting both of my mom’s knees. She explained everything for us to expect.

First Dr to LISTEN to me
I've been dealing with a work comp issue/hip. Dr Watters is the 5th doc I've seen (already had 1 surgery elsewhere) He was the first doctor that honestly listened and heard me, he took the time to explain everything and reassure me when no one else has. He spent an hour with me, talking through my options and recommending I see an even more specialized specialist. I truly appreciate his honesty and empathy, I haven't had any of that so far. I wish he'd been able to help me at this point, I felt more comfortable with him than any of the other surgeons
