Dr. Watson is an excellent, caring surgeon. I was up and about very quickly following a total hip replacement with very few restrictions. This experience turned out to be less stressful and much easier than anticipated.

Thank you for sharing your story. A total hip replacement surgery does sound intimidating but your testimony proves that with an excellent and experienced surgeon, the outcome will improve your lifestyle. We wish you the very best during your recovery!

We can easily see how important Claudia is to Dr. Watson and Florida Orthopaedic Institute. As busy as the office is, she always gets the patient name and information right. I called from the car on the way home from Alabama after a fall on my new knee. She was able to make me an appointment. A few days later, it was busy and she still had time for a hug. Dr. Watson is such a professional. While looking at my knee, he pointed out some swelling in both lower legs, suggesting that I see my primary care doctor. I did a few days later and he's running some tests as Dr. Watson's keen eye was right on the mark and something's not right. I've seen Dr. Watson a number of times and he is always comforting, tries all routes before surgery and a great diagnostician. I'll keep recommending FOI to my friends and family.

I have to say that my expectations were exceeded at Florida Orthopaedic Institute. I was dissatisfied with my local provider in Lakeland and did not want my knee replacement to be done there. My friend had recommended Dr. David Watson to me, he had done her knee replacement and she was very pleased. I started seeing Dr. Watson in 2017. I appreciate the time he took with me each time to answer my questions. Claudia Robb was great to work with and everyone I had contact with was very professional.

I have had two partial knee replacements by Dr. Watson. With the first knee replacement, he kept me in good shape using injections. He told me “he would do surgery when my quality of life change”. He kept me going for 3 years before I had the first surgery which was a perfect experience. The 2 knee replacement was done much quicker. I had to have a second surgery because the sutures broke with two weeks and then I fell down the stairs in my home and required stitches for the same hurt knee. Dr Watson and his staff could not have been nicer to me.i never felt like he was too busy and when I wanted to cry, he always had a smile for me. The entire staff were so great. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO ME WAS HIS ATTITUDE ABOUT WHEN YOU NEED TO HAVE SURGERY, BECAUSE I KNEW HE CARED MORE ABOUT PATIENT CARE AND LESS ABOUT GETTING ME TO SURGERY TO COLLECT MORE MONEY. I KNOW ALL THE PROBLEMS TOOK UP MORE TIME BUT DR WATSON AND HIS STAFF NEVER MADE ME FEEL BAD.

I had my left knee replaced by Doctor Watson and I had no issues. He is an excellent doctor. His staff is excellent and I would highly recommend them and have recommended them to co-workers and friends.

Dr. Watson was the best for my surgery, I will be back for sure. Your office is quick & efficient. Great experience at a time when I was very scared and nervous. I feel like Dr. Watson gave me a huge part of my life back, I cannot say thank you enough.

I started to experience problems after a fall and saw Dr. Watson to be sure my prior knee replacement was not affected. He was wonderful!! I recently began having problems with my right hip and made an appointment to see Dr. Watson because of my faith in him and his staff. He will be performing a right hip replacement on me in late May. Knowing that my last surgical experience was very positive at FOI, I am confident that this procedure will have the same outcome.
