My provider was excellent a steward of his profession. He and the nurse took the time out to explain every step of my exam. Hospital's usually make me nervous but the team made sure i was comfortable through the entire process.

Although he did address one of my medical issues I was seeing him for he completely disregarded another issue. I tried to call the office twice about medication concerns, two days after my visit, and nobody answered the phone.

PROVIDER MADE AN ASSUMPTION AS TO WHAT MY INJURY WAS/IS DID NOT CONFIRM WITH MRI TO INSURE I DON'T HAVE A MORE SERIOUS INJURY, PROVIDER CLEARLY DOESNT CARE TO TAKE PATIENTS CONCERNS SERIOUSLY, THEN STATED MY ASSUMED INJURY WOULD TAKE 4-6 WEEKS TO HEAL BUT WANTED TO RELEASE ME BACK TO FULL DUTY AFTER 3 WEEKS, NO CONCERNS FOR PUTTING PATIENTS AT FURTHER RISK OF INJURY

The care we received from Dr. Watkins was not only professional, but kind, considerate and caring also. He not only gave an examination of the injury but to time to answer all our questions. His services are very much appreciated.
