Dr.Watkins is an amazing doctor! I had just moved from PR when I first visited her and after months of looking for a new obgyn here in Tampa, I was so so so so happy for finding this genius doctor. Now I feel so sad she will no longer be working in Women’s Care Riverview. Just hope she is not moving out of state!!!

She's has a very negative demeanour. She made myself & my fiancé feel very uncomfortable every visit. When we went to deliver, the nurse staff shared all the deceitful things she wrote about me. That made my labor experience more uneasy. I should have been excited, but having nurses gossiping false accusations made me sad.

Ms. Jones – Sep 17, 2019
She was the doctor for my delivery (unfortunately). She asked me how I was feeling and I told her I was in pain, her response was “didn’t you know was it going to hurt before you made the baby?”. She mistreated me. She was rude. She gave me the worst experience possible. She made a lot of comments, very condescending and disrespectful. I wouldn’t even have her to treat a fever. Rude, rude, rude. I should have sued her for the way she treated me when I was delivering my baby.

She lacks compassion. I had gone to hospital while in labor, my contractions stopped and they sent me home. I had appointment with Dr. Watkins that day so I went to meet her at the clinic and went into labor again, this time contractions were strong. She made me wait, my husband requested many times and other patients started to worry looking at me. The staff was scared too. She finally saw me, checked me and said the I was 6 1/2 cm dilated already and was very rude. I was in pain and she said to me "you are the one who keeps having children so why complain about the pain". This was my second pregnancy and I was so furious but since I could not do much, I could have delivered my baby in the car. Reached the hospital and delivered my baby in triage room as soon I lay down. They did not have anytime to assess or check but to deliver the baby. I reported this to the management but no action was taken, did not receive any apology. She is not fit to be a doctor.

Riverview – Dec 20, 2018
Awful bedside manner. Completely rude and dismissive. I was at the hospital feeling awful with severe anemia, she comes in and just wants to send me home without any follow up bloodwork. She was so abrasive, I did tell her she wasn’t very kind, and I wished she would have been nicer. She said she has been told that before. So there you have it, she knows she lacks compassion yet doesn’t work on how to improve her bedside manner. I don’t want to see this woman or her office ever again.

it seems as if she lost her passion for her work and would rather get things over with in terms of delivery. She's not personable, seems as if she lacks interest in her patients and work.

Tampa – Jun 04, 2016
She was kind on my first visit to her but was fairly rude on the second visit. I went to the Riverview Office and it was my first time going to the Gyno and it took about 2 hours in total. There was a lot of waiting in the waiting room and in her office. I only had to wait about 20-25 minutes at Brandon Office. I felt like I couldn't trust her. I felt like she tried to listens to my concerns but I felt like she didn't tell me enough info on how to prevent an infection I have from coming back.
