    Dr. Watkins has been my oncologist since 2012. He is skilled and professional in his work. He also has a great "bedside manner". I consider him to be a friend. His nursing staff, led by Rachel, is the best! Before I developed cancer, some of my friends had. Dr. Watkins was also their oncologist. So, I've known of him for many years. Anyone that I know who ever had him for their doctor always had good things to say. I highly recommend him.

    Dr Watkins is and always has been about the best most considerate thoughtful helpful and light hearted doc I’ve had. I always appreciate his sense of humor which buoys most patients having a hard time. I’ve been seeing him for 14+ years. My wife thought the same of him during her time as a patient for 8 rough years of her fight with breast cancer.

    Dr. Watkins is extremely personable and an excellent doctor. He takes the time to explain lab/test results and address any questions/concerns the patient has. He doesn’t schedule tests unless there is a need for them. I highly recommend him.

    Doctor Watkins was my Mother's oncologist. In 1987 she had stage 4 colon cancer. With Dr. Watkins care, we had 14 more years with her, 14 more years for her to see her Grandchildren grow.. He is a wonderful doctor
