Patient Reviews
May 08, 2024
Dr. Watkins is one of the best doctors we have ever had. Her bedside manner is as incredible as her expertise in pediatric gastroenterology. She takes excellent care of our young son's chronic medical issue and when our daughter began have specific unresolved GI issues beyond the expertise of her pediatrician, Dr. Watkins made room in her schedule to see our daughter within 48 hours, and followed up by email with a treatment plan the next day. She is fantastic with children and both of our children now look forward to seeing Dr. Watkins. Cannot recommend Dr. Watkins highly enough.
