Thorough and good explanations.
Dr Watkins was warm, attentive and really made me feel like he cared about my concerns raised. He caught an issue just by noticing something I had dismissed and would have continued to dismissed was it not for his asking questions. I am glad I now have Dr. Watkins as my PCP and look forward to a happier and healthier future under his care.
The office staff was friendly and polite during my initial arrival. They communicated the breakdown of my expenses and what was covered, which was extremely beneficial.
Personable, professional, and caring. wait in treatment room was long. Approximately 45 minutes. James
Be seeing Dr. Watkins for some time now & have recommended him to all my peers. I have watched his business grow over the years, from being in the cramped trailer to now nicer offices. Dr. Watkins is very personal and seems to care and will answer your questions and address any concerns you may have. I've enjoyed my visits and will continue to keep him as my PCP. I did forget to ask him to test for my testeterone level as I am now 55 years old and would like to know if it is low. Hopefully it will be in the results from my blood test. Overall he is great!!
Dr. Watkins answers all your questions and has vast knowledge of your care. He refers you to other physicians with specific specialties. He even remembers when I first visited him and needed a cardiac specialist. He cares about your health.
Dr. Watkins is very professional as well as personable. He is very concerned about my health. He will only prescribe the drugs if totally necessary. When my blood pressure was slightly elevated at my annual check-up, he advised me to do a follow-up exam in three months to determine if meds were necessary. They were not.
It went ever well.
Seen the PA she was very understanding
Dr. Watkins and the nurse who treated me where outstanding. There professionalism and bedside manner are beyond excellent. However, the time leading the visit was truculent and egregious. They refused to email me the address to the location because on the website the Tucker address was listed. The Tucker information is still listed under the Our Provider tab. Whoever it is that answers the phone at the Decatur locations has a supercilious attitude and is the most unhelpful person I have ever had the displeasure of interacting. When I was waiting outside until the office open, I had some belligerent nurse yell at me from her car speaking to me as if I was her child. Once they entered the office they never even let anyone of us sitting outside in our car know that they were open. An simple open sign on the entrance door will help to resolve this issue since they don't feel the need to inform clients. The staff need to learn that it is not what your say to people it is how you say it and the intention behind it. You can call someone sir all day and night but you intentions and attitude makes it sound as if you are calling them a dummy. They could really use some training on customer service or they need to got a resume class and get a new job.
It was very enlightening and informative and he is a wonderful doctor.
I was replacing my former PCP with Dr. Clyde Watkins Jr. In my first visit Dr. Watkins seems to be understanding, sympathetic, and had empathy for my and my condition. Hopefully we get along like my previous previous before doctor was with him 17yrs hated to leave him but he was no longer in network.
Excellent & thorough as usual.
Its was great and very attentive
All problems were addressed.
He is a very professional doctor who knows his patients and works with us to improve our health and develop more healthy habits
Most effective dr. I know. He takes his time and listens to what you are saying &cares about how to get you to feel better.
I was well pleased with my visit. I recieved a high degree of professionalism from yhe moment I entered the office.I would not hesitate to highly recommend anyone needing first class medical assistance.
Very accommodating, they worked with me. Even though, I went to the wrong office
Very very good
I am very comfortable with Dr Watkins regarding any medical questions I have concerns
I have been a patient of Dr. Watkins for about 5 years and today was the first day that I was not seen almost immediately. Today's patient volume seems more than usual, but I did not mind the wait. Dr. Watkins is very compassionate, patient, a great listener, and highly ethical. I never feel rushed during my visit and he is very thorough. I appreciate his review of past office visits and his evaluations and diagnoses based on his reviews are spot-on. His office staff is very pleasant and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Watkins.
I was looking for a new PCP and I think I've found one we have a sure connection.

It was very good for a first visit, I thank the Dr. for his advice, see you in 3 months.
Wait time needs to get better. I had 10:45 appointment and it was 11:30 before Dr. Watkins saw me. The quicker I can be seen the better. If I'm 45 minutes late will you be as accommodating?
Very cool doctor all my vista are great I really love his professional opinion and work habits.
He is pleasant and thorough. He explains as he examines. All questions are answered. He listens...

He answered all of my questions using terms which the patient could understand, explained his findings, he also gave good advice. He did not hurry as most Physicians do. I would highly recommend Dr. Watkins, anytime to anyone.I was very impressed and satisfied!.
Dr. Watkins is always concerned with me as a person and not just a patient. I would recommend him to others with no hesitation and feel that they will love the atmosphere of the office and the professionalism of all the staff and doctors.
it was great
It has become the norm for me to be there for almost two hours. I got there at my scheduled appointment time (10:15), and didn't leave until noon. I spoke with the scheduler about avoiding the long wait, and it was suggested to come among the earliest appointment times. I scheduled an 8:15 appointment for the next time. We'll see.
I consider Dr. Watkins to be reputable, honest, and accurate with the care I've received from him. I appreciate his office for squeezing me in in such short notice. Thanks!
Dr.Clyde Watkins Jr,appears to be a excellent doctor.I was very impressed with his medical profile on the internet.Once I was put in the examination room I felt like the wait was extremely long.However I am planning on keeping him as my primary care physician.
This guy is a great person first.But he's an excellent Doctor. I trust him with my life.
My experience with Dr Watkins has been one that quick and to the point
