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.

Dr. Atkins is an excellent doctor. He listens well, is extremely knowledgeable and a great diagnostician. He is one of very few doctors that know and understand vestibular migraines!

Initially, I got a phone call after testing and no followup with medication called in -- I wasn't even sure what it was being called in for, and when the initial medication didn't work, I called to let them know and got a different med prescribed -- again, not sure what we were treating -- so I didn't fill that prescription and called to male a follow up appointment to find out what we were treating...and had to pay for it out of pocket rather than Florida Blue covering a follow-up visit for some reason. But then the appointment there was fine!
