Dr. Wilma Hunt-Watts
I help people with their feet to keep America walking. With over 20 years experience, I am a highly-trained Podiatric Physician and Surgeon. I’ve served as an Assistant Attending Physician responsible for teaching surgical residents, worked in private practice and delivered foot care to active military servicemen and women, and veterans.
Why did I choose to be a Podiatrist? I knew I wanted to pick a specialty in medicine where I could make a big impact on helping a lot of people. One of the world’s best podiatrists saved my mother by providing life-saving amputation due to a chronic, non-healing wound. I wanted to make a difference. I believe I have each time a patient thanks me for saving their limb.
It was a privilege to be sought after by a medical team located on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi where I dedicated four years as the sole podiatrist for eight extended and long-term care facilities. With my training, I brought state-of-the-art podiatric medical care to the community.
Being on staff at numerous hospitals not only gave me experience as a podiatric physician but also gave me insight of what it’s like to be a patient. Therefore, I focus on delivering compassionate care to help address your foot care concerns.
Today my efforts are concentrated in telemedicine. Telemedicine is a great platform which allows patients to access me for a consultation from anywhere. I do not diagnose or treat over the phone. My job is to help you find you find the right podiatrist, the right facility and the best way to take care of your feet.
The Virgin Diabetic
Read “Chapter 7: Step Away from Amputation.” I contributed this chapter on foot care! This is only a fraction of more to come.
“I am grateful to Dr. Wilma Hunt-Watts with whom I have had the pleasure to work during this and other related projects. Her level of care and understanding of the diabetic patient reflects my viewpoint and that of the patient. I am forever thankful of her time and expertise in contributing a chapter on diabetic amputation.”
Sincerely, Denise A. Pancyrz
