What People Say About Dr. Samuel Watkins Jr, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr Watkins was willing prescribe me the medication needed to correct a symptom my primary care physician refused to treat. He listened to my concerns, the personal research I conducted, and documents I brought in to the appoionment with me. What I liked, was that one issue I seen him for was slightly outside of his scope and he got me in touch with the right physician to get my concern address. 4 star rating is only due to the 30 min wait to see him.

Very rude and condescending. I was taking my elderly father to him and was very upset with the poor care and understanding he showed toward my dad. He was in and out of room so fast and took no time to explain or listen. Did not want to answer any questions and in fact I had to chase him down hallway to even attempt to ask a question. This happened over multiple visits until I finally convinced my dad to switch doctors. The actual office staff was very nice but I have nothing good to say for him

I was referred to this place because my Dr. said they saw blood in my pee. I've been to the office twice and 2 months later. I've never recieved any results. Now they're trying to get me back a 3rd time to do another procedure. I've called 3 times trying to find out why I paid 1-2 thousand dollars and can't get my results. Dr. Watkins wont' call me back. This place will milk you for all your money and get terrible service. Stay away!!

I wish I had read reviews before going to Dr. Watkins. He was very rude and didn't give me time to ask questions. I managed to get one in, and I felt like it was a good question to ask, but he acted like I was weird for even asking it. It was about probiotics. Anyway, I wouldn't recommend him.

This doctor is always in a rush. No chance to talk a problem over, in his office. He lost a kidney stone sample, I gave to check in a lab. To me, it's wasting time and money.

This Physician should have his license taken away. He puts his patients in jeopardy and unfortunately he doesn't care about his patient's, he cares about the money he makes off of the patients. He doesn't treat his patients well. He does not treat them with courtesy and has no concern for their ailments. He is rude, arrogant and does not follow the standard of care that physicians should uphold. If someone suggests seeing this physician, don't. He is a TERRIBLE doctor! He gets zero stars!

He flew into the room, and spoke so quickly I could barely understand what he was saying. He did not ask if I had any questions and offered no instruction on how to deal with this condition. It was very frustrating, and he was out of the room before I could say anything or try to ask questions.
