    I believe Dr. Watkins retired the end of 2015 and did not let his patient know of his decision which came as a total surprise when I went for my check up this year. During the 2016 visit, the staff was poorly trained, the office was not up the standard of a Doctor's office and the equipment used during the visit appeared to be poorly maintained.
