  • I have been meaning to reach out for weeks and say thank you! From the bottom of my middle aged, perimenopausal heart… thank you! I was in today to see Steph and wanted to thank you in person so I could hug you! She said you weren’t in but that I should reach out to let you know. So here it goes…

    What you and your practice have done for me has honestly changed my life. A year and a half ago I was at my absolute lowest and couldn’t even begin to imagine feeling “normal” or “like myself” again. You listened. You tested. You explained. And you never once judged me. Typing this to you now has me in tears, as I am filled with gratitude. I feel better now than I did in my mid 20’s! I’m down 20+ pounds, I am sleeping like a baby, my anxiety is no longer debilitating, my stomach is not a mess, my mind is clear and my heart is happy. And when people tell me, “Wow, you look great! What did you do?!” I say, “Dr. Watkins. She brought me back to life.”

    Cheers to you!

  • It is with a heavy heart that I must request cancellation of my VIP membership.

    I now reside in Florida, full time, and must look for a local provider.  I will be back in December to receive my Halo treatment and Botox. I will use any remaining funds in my bank towards a touch up on my lip filler.

    So far, I find NOTHING in the Tampa/Clearwater area that compares to aNu and don't think there's any place on the planet that will come close to the caliber of staff.

  • Hi Dr Watkins,
    Just wanted to let you know, I ran 4.5 miles on Sunday and 3.5 miles last night. NO knee pain. Haven't been able to do that since Aug 2020. Thank you thank you thank you. I'm thinking about making another appointment to get the shot in my shoulder, since that's been hurting since age 11 lol.
    Thank you so so much!
