Dr Watkins by hisself, was great. His office staff could use further training. They are the reason I am giving a 1 star rating. My appointment was not keyed in right and my time was wasted. After 4 weeks of waiting I still haven't received my glasses, the office staff doesn't pick up their phone or return phone calls. I am extremely dissatisfied with how I am being treated and given the run around.
