On the weekends, you'll find Angela busy spending quality time with her husband and daughter. During hockey season you will find them and many Gwinnett Gladiator games.
Cici is our social butterfly taking care of the front desk operations. She is the usually first face you see and more than likely, after your first visit, Cici will greet you by name upon entering the door at Watkins Total Healthcare. She truly enjoys the healthcare field and thrives on helping people and seeing our patients get free from pain and get well.
Cici has 3 teenage children and in her free time, you will find her outdoors…camping, hiking, enjoying the beach, or perhaps riding her Harley.
Debbie joined our team in September 2014 and is responsible for our patient’s schedules and also helps out in accounts receivable (A/R). Coming from a background in the banking industry, Debbie fits right in. Debbie loves her job and being a part of the team at Watkins Total Healthcare.
When Debbie is not in the office, she can be found enjoying one (or more) of her many hobbies which include: ceramics, puzzles, gardening, reading, and of course, college football.
Sandy has worked with Dr. Watkins since 1993 and has served patients through most every area of the office. She currently heads up our medical records department.
One of the things you will notice about Sandy is each day she wears a different pin. Over the years she has acquired quite a collection from all over the world and for all different occasions. Each pin has a story and is a great conversation piece with our patients.
