Patient Comments (5)
Sandy, UT |
PA and Medical Assistant were very kind and helpful, answering questions and taking their time with you. The Dr does not speak coherently, and does not make sense when explaining treatment plans and dosing instructions for meds. When calling, it is difficult to get through to a human being, and when you do, the receptionist isn't very friendly or courteous. If you have to wait for the Dr or Medical Assistant to call you back, it will most likely never happen.
Orem, UT |
I had to wait an hour and 45 minutes to see Dr. Watkins. My longest wait ever to see a doctor. When I complained about the wait he and his staff made all sorts of lame excuses. Then he bills me seven months later. I would never recommend Dr. Watkins to anybody.

Dr. Watkins did very minimal testing for neurological conditions and then referred me to the university of Utah, saying he was out of ideas. I asked for specific testing for a condition it's pretty likely I have, and he said it was ruled out, though I've been reading about it for months and know we haven't even done the tests it would take to diagnose. They schedule you out a month for anything, major or minor, and his nurse practitioner texts and the doctor text through appontment. Worst ever.

Long wait times with no explanation nor heads up. 60+ minutes to get out of the waiting room isn't acceptable, and only makes it worse when the office staff doesn't offer an estimate as to when you'll be seen. Clearly my time is not as important as his.
in Springville |
I've been a patient of Dr Watkins for approximately 9 years. He is my 4th neurologist and came highly recommended by a family friend, Dr Charles Dahl. Dr Watkins staff is so friendly and professional, I always feel genuine kindness during appointments and over the phone. Dr Watkins is friendly & very knowledgeable. I feel a genuine interest and concern for my health and well being. He listens and and explains things well. It's always a pleasant experience @ my appointments.
