A very personable and knowledgeable doctor. I was especially appreciative of the fact that he didn’t hurry through the appointment, as doctors too often do.
I found the entire staff to be very thorough. They were very willing to answer all questions we had.
My surgeon, Dr. Watson, and my pain specialist, Dr. Brunz, are amazing doctors. They explain everything in a way that’s easy to understand. They worked hand in hand with me helping me to reach my goals and even to go beyond what I thought possible. I’ll always have a deep respect for all the staff there and will never go anywhere else!
Dr. Watson was very helpful and explained things thoroughly. He took the time to make sure all my questions were answered and gave me options so that I could make an informed decision. His staff is accommodating and helpful and explains things so I understood. They also did follow up to make sure everything was going well.
Staff is very friendly and willing to help in any way they can.
I am VERY impressed with Dr. Watson, your facility, and hospital! All of your staff are extremely courteous, helpful, and went way beyond expectations in the care I received! As a nurse myself and having been a patient of numerous doctors and hospitals, I can honestly say that I have never received the care nor felt as “cared for” as much as you and your staff all exhibited. Don’t get me wrong, yes I have had some great caregivers, but never have I been in a facility where you can just feel that EVERYONE who works there are genuinely happy they are employees of the Orthopedic Institute and the Specialty Hospital! You all need to be very proud of EVERY staff member you have and pride in knowing you have created a wonderful working environment! A huge thank you goes out to all your staff, whether they provided my direct care or work “behind the scenes” (kitchen, laundry, housekeeping, valet staff, EVERYONE)!
I’ve been treated by two different physicians at OI, Dr. Watson for arthritis in my toes and Dr. Carlson for my broken back. Both physicians are experts in their field and are a wealth of knowledge for the injured and the healing patient. I knew I was in good hands from introduction to diagnosis to treatment and discharge. I’ve had the best results I could expect with both physicians and always felt listened to and cared for. Diagnoses, treatment, length of recovery, and expectations were clearly explained, and follow-up was always thorough. I’d highly recommend any physician at OI, as well as their physical therapy and athletic training department, having utilized them both also. Everyone there is very professional and knowledgeable.
On April 19, Dr. Watson reattached my quadricep tendon to my kneecap from an injury on April 15. Less than four weeks later, I am walking with crutches and if I had not had the surgery, I would’ve lost the use of my leg. He is extremely caring and I felt very comfortable with everything he had to say I will never be able to thank him enough for giving me back the use of my leg. Orthopedic Institute is an awesome facility whom I will always go to in time of need.
I went to Dr. Watson with a lot of foot pain. He guided me through the process of healing. His office is connected with great physical therapists that were able to assist me in buying the correct shoes and orthotics. They made a great team in helping me walk comfortably again. I was happy to avoid surgery.
So kind and the treatments have helped so much! I didn’t have to wait, the receptionist was very professional and very kind. The nurses helped me to relax and smile! Very glad I went here!
Very nice doctor! I was very impressed with his knowledge and kindness.
Dr. Watson was very cordial and friendly. He is very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend him.
Dr. Watson and staff have excellent customer service and quality treatment. If I need to consult with an orthopedic surgeon again, I will be sure to contact him!
I had a surgical procedure on my foot. Everyone was fantastic. I usually suffer from post-anesthesia nausea/vomiting. This trip was great, absolutely no nausea or vomiting!Thank you anesthesia for listening and making that happen! I am 24 hours post-op, have no pain, and feel great! Dr. Watson explained procedure thoroughly and gave great post-op info to my husband.
The staff was superior. Patient, kind, knowledgeable, and professional. Thank you.
I was so happy and relieved that I could get in to see Dr. Watson so quickly. I could hardly walk and the scheduler did everything within her power to get me seen. Dr. Watson got me as much relief as he immediately could. So very thankful!
OI is fortunate to have Dr Watson on their staff.
Dr. Watson and his PA as well as all of the staff at OI are amazing. They were patient and answered all my questions. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery.
I was seen at OI for foot pain for over two years and saw Dr. Watson and team and am very impressed with the care. Dr. Watson listened and offered up options for me instead of just saying there isn’t anything we can do. Also saw Reid Herrboldt, the pedorthist, and he got me fitted for orthotics. I was very impressed with process of having a pedorthist at OI and having someone fit you and then follow the process of making sure the orthotics fit well and were comfortable. Very positive experience and if anyone has foot pain, check OI out for top-notch care.
Very caring and very professional would highly recommend Dr. Watson to anyone. He did a wonderful job on my repair.
Very personable and took the time to make me feel very comfortable. Very professional and had no doubt that he and his staff would and did take exceptional care of me.
Dr. Watson is a very kind and caring doctor. His mannerism is reassuring and he explains things in terms that a “lay” person can easily understand.
Loved this doctor, I had him after breaking my tibia plateau in three places in May 2017. He did an excellent job on my surgery, and his bedside manner was outstanding.
Very impressed by Dr. Watson and his knowledge. Would definitely recommend him to my family and friends!
I was referred to OI and Dr. Watson. From my first phone visit with his PA, office staff, consultation with Dr. Watson, surgery and all post op visits, all expectations have been far exceeded. Dr. Watson in particular has been a great communicator regarding any questions or concerns, as well as his ability to relate on a more personal level.
I broke my lower leg bone in my ankle on Saturday, Dr. Watson was able to see me on the following Monday. I had my surgery the next day. I have been more than happy with Dr Watson and his staff. I was able to have open discussions about what to expect and how the treatment will go. I have nothing but positive testimonials for the service I’ve received. I highly recommend Dr. Watson and his staff. Top notch!
Fabulous staff and awesome physical therapists! Thank you for get me back on my feet!
I started seeing Dr. Watson about one year ago after having orthopedic surgery at another practice. I can’t even begin to explain how happy I am that I made the decision to switch. He and his staff give outstanding treatment in the most caring way! Half of the care one receives is peace of mind that you’ve chosen the right doctor and I now have that peace of mind.
I generally see Dr. Watson’s PA and Alyssa is awesome! Also, the receptionists on the fourth floor are so very kind and helpful. Since I had to wait a bit for my appointment, I was able to watch as they interacted with patients, and they went above and beyond to assist the patients in scheduling appointments!
The staff are always great, I broke my ankle they went way out their way to accommodate me and get the ankle casted. Made sure I had a script for meds and paperwork for work, set up appt for surgery and related appointments. Dr. Watson is the best if you have a ankle or foot problem.
Very personable and knowledgeable physician; I was very satisfied with my visit and his treatment.
I was very impressed with how quickly I was attended to by the staff. I always like to be early and was actually in the office about 30 minutes before my appointment time. The staff got me right in and soon had me in the exam room. X-Rays were done, and Dr. Watson came in well ahead of my appointment time. After an exam and explanation covering my concerns, I was on my way by the time my appointment was originally scheduled for. It’s always appreciated to be in and out of an appointment promptly.
I had a similar surgery on my other ankle several years ago with another doctor so I was hesitant going into this surgery but this went a 100 times better. Very pleased so far with the results and he and his whole staff are outstanding.
This is an amazing doctor. He is so kind and knowledgeable. Loved his staff and how quickly they got me in. I would recommend them in a heartbeat.
I suffered a “severely comminuted bicondylar tibial plateau fracture with separation and depression” in late July. From our first phone consultation, to pre-operation office visit, surgery, and the multiple post-op visits, the entire staff has made this as smooth as possible. Dr. Watson has been great to work with. He has patiently addressed all of my questions and concerns about recovery, and treats his patients like people. I will strongly recommend OI to anyone in need of orthopedic care. Thank you so much!
Easy to get appointment, easy to find clinic and parking, easy check in, short wait time. Polite and efficient staff. Knowledgeable physician with great manner of explaining possible solutions to my problem. All around great experience.
I have had two surgeries performed by Dr. Watson and I wouldn’t go to anyone else. He’s knowledgeable, explains things well, and has great doctor/patient rapport. Everyone at the Orthopedic Institute always treats us very well!
Very happy with my evaluation and treatment that Dr. Watson prescribed for me. It was spot on for my ailment and my results were successful, of which previous treatment at a similar facility gave me no good results. As stated l was very satisfied and Dr. Watson was great!
I felt that Dr. Watson and his staff were very knowledgeable about my problem, explained what they wanted to do, and also gave me a couple of things that we could go to if this method of treatment didn’t work.
Had surgery on my toe by Dr. Eric S. Watson. Was very helpful and knowledgeable with my problem. Highly recommend.
I am always so impressed with Dr. Eric Watson. He is always so kind. Thank you, Dr. Watson.
Did a great job! We were very happy with the staff!
Very thorough and easy to talk to—questions, etc. about the procedure and healing process. The staff was also very friendly and courteous. I recommend him highly!
He is a great doctor, got in the morning we called. Had a stress fracture which was painful so glad he could help. We will continue to use Dr. Watson for a long time.
Highest level of care and professionalism from staff and facility. Best care. Fully trusted and respected.
Dr. Watson and his PA, as well all the staff at OI, are excellent. They were patient and answered all of my questions. I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery.
Dr. Watson and his staff were very knowledgeable, helpful and more than happy to answer all of my questions. They called after hours to discuss my procedure and assist me in making decisions on my healthcare. I would highly recommend Dr. Watson and his staff.
I was impressed with Dr. Watson. He explains things well. Great doctor and the staff is also very friendly too!
Very professional and caring. Listened to my concerns and made the best recommendations for overcoming the issues I have had for many years. Very knowledgeable and communicated effectively, seemed very interested in meeting the needs as I expressed as best he could. Staff was very thorough, friendly and compassionate. I have finally found an orthopedic doctor who looked at the whole picture of the issues that I have lived with for many years. Highly recommend!
