John Mobley Had Back Consultation with Dr. Robert Watkins IV

I hurt my back badly and I had a consultation scheduled with Dr. Robert Watkins at the Marina Spine Center. I’m glad to have gone to him for help. He’s great. The staff there is also accommodating and kind.

John Mobley

I had to see Dr. Watkins because of an injury. I hurt myself while playing and even if it didn’t seem as bad as other injuries in the moment, as time went on, I started to feel this pain in my back.

It turns out that I had bruised my spinal cord. Dr. Watkins, who is a spine expert at the Marina Spine Center showed me the X-ray and he told me more about my condition. I really appreciate the way he carries out his consultations. It is obvious that he would want his patients to make an informed decision. For me, I think I’m going to have to stay put for a bit and figure out how to work through this. My team is also very supportive so that’s a relief.
