I was referred to Dr. Watts for dry needling on my neck and shoulder. The results were amazing and I would recommend Nathan to my family and friends or anyone who needs a PT. I was very impressed that he ask if he could pray after my evaluation. He always had a smile and was ready to listen should we need to do something different.

I encountered Dr. Watts in my first physical therapy visit after fracturing my shoulder. I felt immediately that I was in caring hands, because Nathan expressed himself as Christian in his words as well as his actions, even suggesting a short prayer after my physical evaluation. After my initial visit, I was even more comfortable speaking with with him as Nathan. While I felt that some of the prescribed exercises were perhaps too demanding,I knew that he was after my best physical interests

Dr. Watts was professional yet increasingly interested and concerned with my medical needs, which is very rare in the healthcare field. He took his time and listened contently. He explained everything and made sure that I understood and was comfortable with the physical therapy session and plan that we had set up for me to do at home. I also appreciate and admire that he incorporated praying in his therapy session. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Watts to my family, friends, and others as well.

He was very kind and he took time to explain what was happening with my knees to my mom and I. He also made therapy fun; he was kind and funny. I was not afraid to ask him questions when I didn't understand something, and he would answer them.

Being sent by the Veteran's Hospital to receive physical therapy with Dr. Watts was nothing short of a miracle. Being unable to sleep at night and struggling during the day with very painful and limited movement of my neck, Nate's professional training and excellent listening skills allowed me to regain full mobility of my neck movements. He made me know that I was the only patience in the room though it was obvious I wasn't. Would highly recommend Dr.Watts. He literally has healing in his hands

I highly recommend Nathan. From our first meeting, he was very easy to talk with and I was immediately comfortable talking with him. He is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. You can tell he cares about his patients by the way he treats them and talk to us. Ask for him and you will see first hand the epitome of a great DTP.

Dr. Nathan Watts is a professional who genuinely cares for his patient's well being. When I started treatment , I was recovering from traumatic injuries from a car accident. I had 9 broken bones including a broken neck, a broken femur, a shattered kneecap, along with a ruptured Achilles. When I started seeing Dr. Watts, I could not stand and was confined in a wheelchair. Dr. Watts was encouraging and so helpful. After completing therapy, I was able to hike in the mountains with my grandbabies

I would recommend Dr. Nathan Watts to anyone and everyone in need of a physical therapist. He has a genuine concern for his patients, and it shows in everything he says and does. He is patient, and he thoroughly explains the cause of your pain and the goals of the selected treatment. I noticed an improvement after the first visit, and the progress I made in just a few weeks was amazing.

What can I say, Dr. Watts is so caring and understanding to your specific needs. Knowing he is a good Christian man was a plus to me, he worked with me on pain up and down my hip and leg and I thought it would never go away, but I was wrong he helped me understand what it meant to strengthen my core which I continue to do at home. If you are looking for someone to help you while caring about you then you need to see Dr. Watts.
