Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Watkins "I intended to be a journalist, but got a job at Brackenridge in the early 1970's to put myself through school at UT. I became an OR Tech, and found myself intrigued by surgery. I worked through undergraduate and medical school in the OR. I was initially drawn to surgery, and did my internship in surgery. I was more interested in the medical issues involved with my patients, and went into medicine with a subspecialty of cardiology. I was particularly drawn to cardiology since my father died of cardiovascular disease just after I finished undergraduate school. This is the right choice for me."
