in Oakland, CA |
I don't know what more one could ask for in a doctor. I have been a patient for over thirty years. I came to him based on a recommendation of my twin brother who is a doctor. I think Dr. Watkins must be one of the very best in his field. Putting all his skills and medical talents aside, he is just a very easy person to talk to and has never shortchanged me on time or care.

We would recommend Dr. Watkins to anyone. Both my husband and I have had him as our PCP for almost ten years and our interactions have been consistant. We have hasn't emergency situations as well as routine exams and he is forthright in his handling of all. He is kind, proactive in his approach, has good follow thru, and excellent communications. We have moved out of the SF- Bay Area but he will continue as our Primary Care Physician.
