    How was your appointment with Dr. Watkins?

    Jun 19, 2021
    Dr. Watkins has been my oncologist for over five years. My husband and I met him shortly after moving to Florida, and learning I had cancer. It was a terrifying ordeal, amplified by the awareness that we had left behind 30 years of trust earned by previous medical providers. Fortunately, we were referred to a highly skilled physician. Doctor Watkins was not only skilled but he provided compassionate care. He stated early into my chemo and radiation treatment that he would take good care of me. He has shown over the years that he meant what he said. Today, I am cancer free and feel safe due to his ongoing care. Recently, my husband was diagnosed with skin cancer and sought Dr. Watkins care as he was familiar with the level of care provided by him and his staff, namely his physician's assistant and Monica (who make us feel like family). We highly recommend Dr. Watkins and his staff who provide cutting edge treatment advancements along with compassionate care.
