Two days ago, Dr. Watkins inserted 2 more stents in my husband's heart during a 90-minute cardiac catheterization. Alongside him was Dr. Abernathy, an M.D. and surgical fellow. As a professor who long worked for a university which had a med school, I've known and consulted more surgeons than most people, & was impressed by Dr. Watkin's consummate skill and by the clarity with which he and Dr. Abernathy explained what they'd done and why. These gentlemen are GEMS.
