How likely are you to recommend Dr. Watkins?

(Select your rating)
My daughter had a visit with Dr. Watkins today. The great staff- Jessica, helped us alleviate a major billing error; Chris, infectious laughter and vision specialist. We arrived before our 2:30 pm DARS exam which began an hour later and left at 5pm. We saw Dr Watkins all of 10 minutes—reviewed chart, examined eyes, said nice to meet you, and left. Chris did most of the talking and completing her paperwork. My daughter was diagnosed since an infant with ocular albinism from numerous Houston Eye and University of Houston eye doctors. Yet, they disagreed with albinism.
