Dr. Watts & her team ROCK!!!

April 22, 2020 8:27 AM

Care is excellent. Visits are positive, helpful & thorough.

March 23, 2020 2:53 PM

Dr watts answered all my questions. Ordered a CXR, if abnormal we would follow up with CT. I was called before we were even home to say it was abnormal. I spoke with the dr herself and she put on the order for CT while we were on the phone and did a preauth for the medication she refilled that day. we couldn't ask for a better doctor for our son after being dismissed by another pulm from another group.

March 23, 2020 2:13 PM

love Dr Watts!!

March 23, 2020 2:06 PM

love dr watts!!!

March 18, 2020 12:32 PM

We waited over 40 mins. for our appointment. The doctor spent very little time with us. I had to repeat information frequently to her. My son was just discharged from the hospital and I felt she should have given more care to us during the appointment. She lacked interest in his issue.

February 22, 2020 6:58 AM

great experience

February 11, 2020 11:35 AM

The receptionists at the office were not very welcoming and the receptionists at the lab were not pleasant and somewhat rude, especially at the second visit. Visit cost and medication cost could have and should have been discussed.

November 10, 2019 11:00 PM

great, Watts does a great job of explaining items simply and clearly

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Watts and all staff members were amazing! I definitely felt like Dr Watts cared about my son and listened to me, she made me feel justified with the concerns I had. Loved working with her.

September 26, 2019 7:00 PM

We love Dr. Watts! She is the best!

September 24, 2019 7:00 PM

We LOVE Dr. Watts!! Don't change anything. I wish she was our doctor for everything! We have an amazing relationship. I feel like she is a friend. I love her staff as well.

August 17, 2019 7:00 PM

very impressed with Dr Watts. she took time to ask questions about my child's history and explained her approach to treatment. very happy we found her.

July 18, 2019 7:00 PM

We live an hour away from Lutheran General. We ran into unexpected traffic on the way to the appointment. We were 45 mins. late & Dr. Watts still saw my daughter.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Every visit is always excellent.

May 1, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Kimberly Watts is an excellent doctor. Thanks to her my 10 year old child is now "asthma free."

March 24, 2019 7:00 PM

I had a wonderful experience.

March 22, 2019 7:00 PM

I am glad I met dr.Watts.She was very professional.Thank You

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Watts is always wonderful. She's very good at explaining conditions, drugs and health care plans to us in a way that is easily understood. I appreciate this because having a child that is sick is overwhelming enough without all the medical jargon. Her nursing staff is also the best! They are very quick to return calls and are extremely knowledgeable. Dr. Watts and her team took what was a super horrible year for our daughter and helped us see that it was going to be ok. They helped our daughter get better and kept our minds at ease!

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Watts figured out what was wrong with X when all of the previous Advocate doctors couldn't.

January 14, 2019 6:00 PM

very informative, overall good.

January 13, 2019 6:00 PM

it was very good. love her and so does X

December 7, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Watts is always communicative, and always there for X. X has seen her 3 previous times in PICU, and she is always playing with him. Get him to take his medicine when he is feeling over whlemed. She always come back to see him after rounds to spend 1 on 1 time. She is just amazing, and I am thankful for having her in our lives.

December 2, 2018 6:00 PM

Excellent. Dr. Watts is amazing and so caring.

October 14, 2018 7:00 PM

I feel extremely confident with Dr. Watts' care, knowledge and approach of my son's health. With every visit, I feel as my son is in the best hands. As a side note, I would like to mention that some of the nurses and /or intake personal could use to be a little more personable, patient, and approachable with the little patients. Thank you!

September 23, 2018 7:00 PM

Great doctor. Very friendly and takes time to talk with you.

June 22, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Watts and her staff are fantastic. They are all very respectful, caring, and attentive. I often say I wish they could teach all doctors and their offices how to treat patients. Thank you!

April 29, 2018 7:00 PM

March 26, 2018 7:00 PM

As always, Dr. Watts is understanding and helpful in all ways regarding my child.

March 12, 2018 7:00 PM

February 27, 2018 6:00 PM

I have been so impressed with Dr. Watts. She is so professional & yet very approachable.

February 9, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Watts is an awesome doctor. she is very knowledgeable and a great listener. My son loves her. she has been so helpful

January 2, 2018 6:00 PM

We are very impressed with Dr. Watts and Luthern General. She is knowledgeable and receptive to discussion and questions. She has been easy to work with to personalize medical care for our daughter. The logistics of communication and appointment follow up has been very organized and easy. Great coordination between physician, staff pharmacy and labs.
