Dr. Atkins and I spent a lot of time going over my care and progress. He agreed with the direction I was going in, I've researched about my illness and he was very supportive of me and my thoughts and the direction I wanted to go in. He gave me good information and answered all my questions supporting me fully. I am so relieved to have a doctor who will listen to me.

Very happy with Dr Arkins. He spent a fair amount of time talking to me explaining my situation and I appreciated it. He told he we would start with plan A and if that didnt work he had a plan B in mind. I feel like he really cared about my situation and would try his hardest to find a solution

Dr Atkins was recommend as the best to address my vertigo, but after waiting the six weeks for an appointment to see him, I now have to wait another six weeks to get the test he wants before he will order the treatment. I hate to think how long I will have to wait for that appointment!

I drive in from Lakeland to see Dr. Atkins because he is such a talented, caring doctor. His staff has always been prompt to return calls and take care of issues I've had as well. I have always been quite pleased with his care.

Dr. Atkins if the finest doctor I have ever had the good fortune to know. He is 100% tuned in to any/every question I have and believe me "post cancer" patients have a ton of questions, concerns and fears.

Please don't assume that my vocabulary is inadequate to the task of understanding my doctor. Thankfully, Dr. Atkins doesn't talk down me. I have already recommended Dr. Atkins to several people, and will continue to do so.
