Patient Comments (14)
in Terrell, TX |
Dr. Ata and his staff are amazing. I only began seeing him in late May 2017. Each and every staff member that I came into contact with treated me with such kindness & compassion! Thank you Cortney, Sheena, Christa, Casey, Brian, Nicki, Mr. Gleason, Pam, Shannon & Beth. To Dr. Ata, you have changed my life in so many ways in such a short time. Thank you for your kindness and compassion. Thank you for giving me hope for a better life!

Dr Ata seems knowledgeable but he has no work ethics. His office visits are timed to 5 minutes maximum. Even my first visit was 5 minutes. And then he is concerned why are not coming more often? For what? 5 Minutes for quick chat? He does not even answer questions sincerely. He tried to force me to get MRI done which I did few years ago and it was normal. He was rude about me refusing it. He has bad attitude toward me as a patient.It is very hard to talk to his nurses.His system is horrible!!!

Well educated and compassionate
THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSE. AFTER SEEING YOUR REVIEW, IT LETS US KNOW WHICH AREAS WE NEED TO IMPROVE.
in Greenville, TX |
Dr. Ata and his staff have been nothing but AMAZING when it came to addressing several of my neurological issues. They are all very personable and make me comfortable at all of my visits. I trust him 100% with my health and would highly recommend him to anyone I know!
in Greenville, TX |
DR ATA IS VERY THOROUGH. I ALWAYS FEEL VERY WELL TAKEN CARE OF.
in Frisco, TX |
My experience with Dr. Ata has been more than exceptional. He is very through on explaining conditions, diagnosis, MRIs and any medications that you have questions about. I would strongly recommend Dr. Ata if you want a doctor that properly explains your conditions and what steps that are needed to improve.
in Greenville TX |
I would highly recommend Dr. Ata to family and friends. He is very thorough. He listened and discussed his plan with me in detail. I had been to other Neurologists prior to seeing him to no avail. Dr Ata was able to diagnose and treat my condition within a few visits. His staff was very helpful and courteous as well.

I had been to SEVERAL doctors about a sweating in one spot on my body and all they would say is Hu... thats weird. But you're young and healthy. It's nothing to worry about. So I stopped going to Dr.s for it. Until my mom forced me into Dr. Ata's office. He took the time to listen, do tests, and did not give up until he found the schwannoma tumor in my back. He sent me to the leading thoracic surgeon in the area. With out his persistence, I don't think it would of been found.
in Greenville, TX |
Dr. Ata tried to force a medication on me for migraine headaches that I do NOT even have! When I said I didn't need it, he tried to find another reason for me to take it. He also blatantly lied to me about my lab results, which I wouldn't have known had I not gotten a second opinion. He ran me through several expensive tests and tried to force more, using scare tactics. Turns out,all but one were unnecessary. Run from this guy!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR FEEDBACK, IT HELPS US TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF PATIENT CARE. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT OUR OFFICE AT ANY TIME TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT, AND WE WOULD BE HAPPY TO GO OVER ANY LAB ORDERS, TESTING AND MEDICATION CONCERNS YOU MAY HAVE IN GREAT DETAIL.
in Greenville, TX |
he doesn't seem to want to explain what is going on with you, you feel like he's in a hurry to get you out of his office, tried to ask him a question and all he said will talk about it at your next appointment which was in six weeks. call his nurse to see if I could see him earlier because still having pain said she would get back to me and never did.
WE APPRECIATE YOUR FEEDBACK, WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR WAYS TO IMPROVE PATIENT CARE. WE APOLOGIZE IF YOU FELT RUSHED, THAT IS NEVER OUR INTENTION, BECAUSE IT IS OUR PRIORITY TO MAKE SURE OUR PATIENTS FEEL COMFORTABLE AND CARED FOR IN ALL ASPECTS IN OUR OFFICE. MY STAFF AND I LOOK FORWARD TO THE CHANCE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH A MORE SATISFACTORY MEDICAL EXPERIENCE.
in Dallas, TX |
From day one, Dr. Ata had no intentions on addressing my health issues whatsoever! He felt an obligation, and compel to keep the tread going! Which is to keep the real truth, and disturbing statehood, status, and conditions of my health overall: top notch secret, and hidden! Due to his guilt of innocence, and fears tactics, he sent me a letter of discontinuation of services!
WE APPRECIATE YOU LETTING US KNOW ABOUT THE EXPERIENCES YOU HAD IN OUR OFFICE, AS WE USE ALL INFORMATION TO IMPROVE PATIENT CARE. I AM VERY SORRY THAT YOU HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE, AS THAT IS NEVER OUR INTENTION. I WISH YOU NOTHING BUT THE BEST GOING FORWARD WITH YOUR MEDICAL CARE.
in Frisco, TX |
As a 100% disabled U.S.Veteran I was seeking treatment for anxiety and spinal spasms results 3 spinal surgeries. He gave no indication that he knew the first thing about what could be causing the spasms,informing me that he wasn't qualified to give an opinion on a necessary medication for the suffering, I had noted on my health form that all my ailments were combat related. He walked out of the office without acknowledging that I was even there. He made me feel ashamed to be a veteran.
WE VALUE YOUR OPINION AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LETTING US KNOW ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE. I WANT TO FIRST START BY SAYING THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY, WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS OUR GRATITUDE. OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY IS PROPER PATIENT CARE. WE STRIVE TO MAKE SURE OUR PATIENTS FEEL SAFE AND WELL CARED FOR. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT OUR OFFICE TO SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO ADDRESS ANY CONCERNS YOU MAY HAVE ABOUT YOUR MEDICAL CONDITION.
