  • “Dr. Fusco explained the process of injecting cortisone into my foot. He placed me at ease before he started. I had been very apprehensive before the visit. He was very professional and understanding. My worries were unfounded, as there was very little discomfort with the injection.”

  • “Dr. Watt and the staff at Orthopaedic Associates are friendly and caring and very helpful. I always feel comfortable when I go there, and everything is explained to me so well that when I leave there, I know exactly what is going on and they always take the time to answer any questions I may have. I would highly recommend them. And their physical therapy staff is also fantastic.”

  • “Dr. Watt is another fantastic doctor at Orthopaedic Associates. He removed dupuytren (SP) in my right hand and also carpal surgery on my right wrist. Dr. Watt is a very kind person and showed a lot of concern for my problem. Next to Dr. T, he's my favorite doctor. I am very pleased with everyone at your office and how nicely I've been treated by all your employees. Thanks for caring!!!!”

  • “I have ben a patient of Dr. Thackeray for many years. He has doctored my knee and when I broke my right hip in Portugal, 2012, he took care of me when I returned home. In July of 2013, Dr. Thackeray replaced my knee and I've been great since then. I still go see him when I have problems, but not as much as I use to.  He is not only my doctor, but a good friend, as well. I thank God for him and all the years of taking care of me.”

  • “Dr. Watt was awesome. Friendly and prompt and very interested in me as a patient and person. Got in and out quickly and all healed perfect. Can't thank him enough. Never felt rushed when in appointment. Staff was friendly as well. Dr. Watt uses the newest technology to assist him. I had a cortisone shot and it was painless.”

  • “I'm an OR nurse and a crafter. Both activities involve repetitive motion and handling heavy equipment. I have developed tendinitis in both wrists. Dr. Watt saw me struggling to open a sterile item in the OR one day and told me I should get it treated to avoid more damage. Several weeks later, the base of my right thumb swelled up and was exquisitely tender. I called Dr. Watt's office in Destin and was promptly given an appointment.  The office staff was very welcoming. I was seen promptly. Dr. Watt was his usual affable self which made the process of injecting my wrist much more pleasant. I expected a much more painful injection and aftermath. I was pleasantly surprised  when my wrist was totally pain-free and more mobile immediately after the injection and it still is. Given my the activities of my job and my jewelry making, I'm sure my wrist will act up again. When it does I will have no qualms in having Dr. Watt inject it again.”

  • “Dr. Fusco was professional, concerned, and thorough in dealing with my foot problem. He was able to explain the problem and solution in easy to understand terms. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. I would definitely recommend him to others. A former student of mine highly recommended him to me.”

  • “The office personnel, the nurse, and Dr. Watt were very professional. I expected to need surgery for Dupuytren's Contracture, but Dr. Watt explained that the Xiaflex injections were as reliable, without the recovery time and pain of surgery. The hand therapist couldn't have been more professional, knowledgeable, and, successful in making the splint fit my hand and help make the procedure produce the end results I was hoping for. I'm looking forward to having my other hand treated for Dupuytren's Contracture, by Dr. Watt's and his team of professionals. I've encouraged two other people to make arrangements to be treated with Xiaflex, because of my experience.”

  • “Dr. Watt was an excellent orthopaedic surgeon. He fused the DIP joint of my right little finger. His explanation of what was wrong with my finger and the treatment necessary was very thorough.

  • “I lost my right leg in an automobile accident in 2008. I was employed with Bayer US when this happened which made the injuries covered by Workman's Compensation. I have to have an Orthopedic Surgeon to exam my leg at least once a year and report to Travelers Insurance which is the agent for Bayer's Workman's Comp. I moved from Memphis, TN, to Sea Grove two years ago and picked Dr. James Watt as that doctor to represent my medical situation on my behalf. He has done an excellent job of this by reporting my needs to Travelers Ins. I also have been having trouble with my right knee and he will operate on it the 31st of this month to repair a torn Meniscus. His bed side manner is fantastic, takes time to talk to you and explain all of your options. I highly recommend him!”

  • “Dr. Watt and Kristen Singletary went so far and beyond. Best experience ever. Dr. Watt saved the day when my daughter had an ankle injury 2 days before State Competitive Cheer Competition in Tampa. She was able to compete because he went out of his way to see her and get the treatment she needed. The team went on to win State that weekend and a huge part of that was because of Dr. Watt. Thank you, Dr. Watt, for all you do. You too Kristen. I love your motto, "Find a way to say yes." You're both the best.”

  • “I am a US Marine Veteran and the VA system is slow. This procedure on me was put in Dr. Tennholder's hands. Orthopaedic Associates and my doctor took the best care and did it in a very timely manner allowed by VA. Now I am in much better shape due to the diligence of the doctor and staff of Orthopaedic Associates. Thank You.”

  • “Dr. Watt did an amazing job on repairing the damage to my left wrist and hand. I have recovered full use of my hand! At 86 years of age, that is an amazing thing. The orthopaedic staff, Tyler and Miranda, were wonderful in ensuring that I received the therapy I needed to recover my range of motion in my right arm as well. Wonderful, caring staff!”
