Priest Holmes Had Neck Consultation with Dr. Robert Watkins IV

I really admire the ways in which Dr. Watkins works. He wanted me to see all the ramifications my injury could have on the long term. It was important to him that after our consultation I understood the impact that this injury has on my life.

Priest Holmes

I’ve been in a lot of pain because of an injury. My neck is the worst but my back is pretty bad too. It’s been like that ever since a head-to-head collision. It was rough. After that, I immediately started working with Dr. Robert Watkins at the Marina Spine Center since he is one of the best spine surgeons. He was thorough and cautioned me about what the effects of this could be on my well-being and on my career.

He also helped me understand what would happen if I got injured again. I liked that he was so focused on what the damage might do years from now because then I can maybe find some ways to prevent it from happening or to keep it in check somehow. He wanted to make sure I understood all the options that I had.
