Great Doctor

Posted on November 6th, 2010

The other review i have seen on Dr. Watkins is so untrue. I was a patient of his for several years in his former private pain mgmt practice. He is one of the best Docs I have ever visited. Every appointment i had with him, he took the time to thouroughly listen to my problems, treated me with concern and respect, and has an excellent bed side manner. If i had not of moved far away, i would still be seeing him. Perhaps the negative reviewer did not have the needed records or history for Dr. Watkins to presribe pain meds. People who try to scam pain Docs for drugs make life miserable for the Doc and true chronic pain paitents who benefit from Dr. Watkins services. He is a professional Doc who treats his patients with respect and genuine concern.It

He doubted my diagnosis of a broken back and neck (after 3 spinal surgery). He refused to give me any pain medication two weeks after a 2nd spinal fusion. He is disrespectful and does not care about his patients in the least bit.
