    I have liked Dr. Watkins since my first visit - about 10 yrs. ago. He explained everything concerning sleep apnea that made me determined to get used to the mask. At first it wasn't all night but I have used it "every" night since I got it. Now I use it all night all the time.

    Very good.

    Dr Watkins made me feel confident and cared for about my testing for sleep apnea and the need for treatment. He took lots of time and went over every aspect of my needs regarding the need for sleep apnea testing. Highly recommend him!!

    I had reservations regarding sleep apnea testing as my husband is receiving care from another provider that we were not wild about but Dr. Watkins is a whole different ballgame. We actually saw a doctor (Watkins) and he went over everything thoroughly and I am so happy I went in to his clinic for care.

    Dr. Watkins & his staff are excellent. If all my doctors offices/visits were as good, everyone would love going to the doctor.

    Dr Watkins is amazing! He is extremely thorough and always takes his time to explain everything and talk about options. I NEVER feel rushed or leave feeling like I don't understand. He has compassion for his husband is also a patient and feels the same way. He is an amazing doctor! I have been seen by other doctors in other offices and facilities...I wish they were all as compassionate, caring and as knowledgeable as Dr Watkins!!!

    He is cream of the crop. Best of the best.

    My frustration in the scheduling comes from the multiple times the providers office called to reschedule my appointment. Every time put my appointment further & further out - I needed to see the provider not a PA or someone else.

    Experienced on Feb 08, 2019

    I love everything about Dr. Watkins, his medical assistant and the staff at the front desk. Everyone is always very nice, helpful and welcoming. I have seen other doctors in this office, Dr. Watkins is the very best and the only one I recommend to friends who ask for referrals. Thank you Dr. Watkins and staff!!
