“Great!  Practice was able to schedule me on short notice for two visits.  This was important since I was on vacation and needed to have finger checked.  Another surgeon in Ohio did original surgery, but it was good have access to a local doctor who as I said saw me twice and gave me references if follow was needed when I got home.  A  side note, it was good to see a Buckeye rather than one of those Gator doctors that always clapping their hands acting like a gator. (just kidding, I thinks). Please pass on to Dr. Watt finger is doing well.” – Jerry M.

I will not go to anyone else, he is compassionate, extremely knowledgeable and talented in his surgical abilities. This includes his team. I continually recommend him. He is one of the finest doctors I have ever had!" – Robin E.

His entire staff is friendly, efficient and very helpful.  I was extremely pleased with my experience with Dr. Landry." – Dianne H.

"I have seen Dr. Watt twice and each time he has been incredibly kind and had a good body of knowledge of his specialty, which not only answered all of my questions but also put me at ease. My husband saw Dr. Watt on another occasion and told me that he had the same experience. In a nutshell - he's wonderful!" – Jerri M.

"My initial consult with Rick (PA) and then Dr. Tenholder were both positive experiences. The TKR surgery was scheduled with very little fanfare, and upon checking into the Ft. Walton Beach Medical Center, everyone was very positive. The surgery went very well, the recovery in the hospital (having my own private room), the nursing staff and the culinary chefs were OUTSTANDING. I highly recommend Dr. Tenholder as a surgeon who performs excellent surgery, assisted by Rick and the other staff at the various offices. GREAT JOB to ALL, and, I am recommending your organization to anyone needed information or surgeries. " – Dr. Wayne A.

"My experiences with replacing both knees were excellent.  The staff from receptionist to Dr. Tenholder treated me with respect; polite and extremely professional. I share the positive experience with all my fellow co-workers as well as others that notice the scar and or limp. I would not hesitate to use Orthopedic Associates in the future, if needed." – Scotty L.
