Dr Watsky is a 1989 graduate of NY Medical College. After a residency training program in the US Air Force, he remained on active duty for three years after Desert Storm. He completed a fellowship training program in endocrinology at Albany Medical Center and joined The Endocrine Group in 1997. He is Board Certified in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, as well as Internal Medicine. His specialty is evaluation and management of thyroid disorders, including thyroid cancer, but like all the physicians of TEG, enjoys the practice of general endocrinology and all it has to offer.
Dr Watsky was one of the first physicians in the country to earn the ECNU designation. ECNU (Endocrine Certification in Neck Ultrasound) is a professional certification for endocrinologists who perform diagnostic evaluations of the thyroid and parathyroid glands through use of ultrasound and ultrasound-guided needle aspiration. The ECNU credential signifies that an individual has passed a comprehensive certification exam and a review of images and reports called the Validation of Competency Process. The ECNU designation was granted August 2009 and requires re-certification in ten years. Dr Watsky has been performing ultrasound exams and using ultrasound to guide fine needle aspirations of lesions in the neck since 1997.
