Patient since the 1990s

Dr. James Watkins was the MOST upbeat physician i ever knew. As a long term patient i am sadden to have just learned that Dr. Watkins has retried. On all the many visits i had with him he was always in a very jovial mood. Never treating his patients in a trivial manner, Dr. Watkins would speak to his patients as if they were a friend. James A. Watkins, MD will surely be missed at future appoints.
