His tone is harsh at best. I never saw him in person. While attempting to recover from a head injury he thought it would be a great idea to grill me like a prosecutor for some reason about a complaint letter I had written to Piedmont Mountainside on my poor experience in the ER.The $9100 bill for a CT Scan when I was never examined by the ER dr and he wasn't very alarmed that although I needed lots of addtl med care for a lacerated tongue& broken tooth I certainly was and still am! Wow!
Dr. Atkins is willing to sign medical orders without having actually seen or heard from a patient. After making his decision, and upon the patient not agreeing with it, he defended his decision with all the bedside manner of a gorilla, and, without actually listening, stated that he had made his decision and nothing anyone said would change it.
