Dr. Watkins is treating me for several conditions. I find him to be extremely thorough and makes sure you understand him 100% before leaving. He is a kind man who will does not rush you through an appointment. I can't say enough about his office staff.... they are wonderful and compassionate people. I never wait more than 10 minutes for my appointment. The office is on a main street, easily accessible, newly renovated, very clean and they utilize the newest technology. Love them!!!

Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The office is clean and roomy. Dr Watkins was attentive and patient. I know he was busy but he gave me all the time i needed and answered every question i had. I like that he gave me options to try other than surgery right away. I might still need surgery, but I'm glad he is willing to try more conservative treatments first. He has lots of experience and training and he impressed us with his knowledge. My husband and i really liked him.

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Watkins and staff. I needed to have a surgical procedure on my foot and Dr. Watkins was very helpful in scheduling procedure in hospital quickly and painlessly. The procedure went great and the recovery has been painless. Thank you so much for an amazing experience!

Absolutely loved this doctor! My daughter needed deeply imbedded thorns removed; some of these thorns were very small. Dr. Watkins was very patient with her and spent the time needed to remove even the smallest ones. His bedside manner is gentle and compassionate. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family!!

Dr Watkins and staff were a pleasure to meet Wednesday for my first visit. Very professional, kind, and caring. Dr Watkins was very thorough and fixed the immediate need that I came in for that day. He was very knowledgable and informed me all about the issue and what I need to do in the future. He then proceeded to observe another issue that a previous dermatologist blew off several years ago. I feel confident that he will take good care of my needs in the future.

Dr. Watkins performed extensive surgery on my left foot. Very thorough in explaining the pros and cons of the surgery, thorough in explaining post op plan from non-weight bearing to full-weight bearing, as well as future expectations. Extremely Kind and Caring Professional. I highly recommend Dr. Watkins.

Dr Watkins is a very knowledgeable and caring Doctor. You will never feel rushed when you are in his care. He did surgery on my foot that I put off for years because I feared the pain. I can honestly say I've had no pain at all since my (bunion) surgery 2 weeks ago. I would highly recommend him.

I recently had to have surgery on my foot. His care was excellent. I appreciated his willingness to answer all my concerns and time he took to make me feel at ease. I received excellent care! Loved his new office in Leesburg. It was clean and has the latest technology right there to diagnose my problem. His office staff is very friendly and handled all my insurance concerns.

My daughter was terrified and Dr. Watkins put her at ease. This was no easy task! He was very kind and one could tell that he truly cares about his patients. This meant the world to this mom! Her break was serious and required surgery. I couldn't of asked for better treatment nor care! Dr. Watkins was a blessing in time of emergency. Thank you!!! He is one of the best!
