John Lynch Had Cervical Microdiscectomy with Dr. Robert Watkins IV

I've had little episodes here and there that eventually turned into this first kind of big one I've had. So, naturally, I was starting to get more and more concerned. I took the issue to Dr. Robert Watkins who assured me that we will find a solution that would work.

John Lynch

I had hurt myself on the field. Of course, I did. I had an MRI exam done and Dr. Robert Watkins at Marina Hospital looked over the results to find out what was wrong and how to fix it. I trusted Dr. Watkins because he had treated me before coincidentally also because of a neck issue. The thing with these injuries is that for many people they tend to get them to almost act like it never happened. And I get that, it’s an inconvenience that nobody wants.

Me, for example, I felt alright even after the injury, or that was what I was telling myself anyway. It’s important, I think, to have a professional check up on you though just to be sure and not have a painful surprise sneak up on you in the future. Yeah, I’m not big on hospitals but I have only good words to say about Marina Hospital. They are very professional but also act like human beings. The last thing I’d want is to discuss my issues with a robot.
