    How was your appointment with Dr. Hughes-Watkins?

    Nov 20, 2021
    Elise consistently gives patients that which is most lacking in medicine today - time! The waits can be long - because the system packs in appointments - but I view it as an affordable premium for receiving high-level care and attention to details. If you want your provider to spend time with you - you have to expect to wait. If you want a short wait and an equally short visit - then there are probably plenty of other doctors happy to oblige. Our entire family sees Dr H-W, and we all appreciate her knowledge and her personal attention! Absolutely worth the wait!!
