Kevin Brown Had Back Consultation with Dr. Robert Watkins IV

I went back to Marina Hospital and to Dr. Watkins to see if I could get some answers for my back condition. I had a disc in my lower back a few years ago that needed to be repaired and Dr. Watkins performed the surgery. I have faith in him because of how he helped me then.

Kevin Brown

For me, it was a no brainer to come back to Marina Hospital. I had Dr. Robert Watkins, who is one of the greatest spine surgeons there is to help me with back issues before. He actually was the one that took care of a bulging disc in my lower back a few years ago. I thought he did great. There were no more pain and discomfort and as I got through rehab, I could significantly see my strength come back.

This time around, though, Dr. Watkins says I have a lumbar strain. I trust his judgment and I am willing to follow his instructions because I have done it before and the results were great. You know, you have to get the help you need so that things don’t get worse. I’d like to get back to training as soon as possible but we’ll see.
