Dr Hughes Watkins has made my 95 year old Mother Wait to see her in her office for two hours on numerous occasions....find a different doctor.
in Concord, CA |
she always spends as much time as necessary to give you the BEST care she can
in Danville, ca |
She signed a medical directive to allow a woman who took my 99 years old father in law to visit her to be his agent. On the directive the woman appointed herself, indicated that my in law does not want to prolong his life ( and the family all know he has the strongest desire to live forever). The issue is; my father in law does not understand English and dr. Watkins does not understand Chinese, that woman is the only person doing the interpretation with no others present. Imagine the problem!
Danville, CA |
She is arrogant, negligent and omnipotent. And as a result she misdiagnosed back pain for over 6 months only to find out after many tequests for an MRI that there was a large tumor on the spine called cancer.
