What People Say About Dr. Antoinina Watkins, MD

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.

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.

Dr Watkins always takes the time to answer my questions and talks in a way that I can understand everything. I'm so confident that she is taking the best care of me. I'm so thankful to have a doctor like her.

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.
