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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.
in Frisco, TX |
I would recommend Dr. Ata to anyone with Parkinson's Disease. He has completely changed my life.
Dr. Ata was the first doctor to get my migraines under control which was life-changing.
