Dr Atkinson is incredibly awesome! He has been where I needed him when I needed him to care for my Mother. He even showed up in the ER to see her. There isn't another pulmonary doctor that rates as high with me as he does. His bedside manner is wonderful and he's very down to earth and doesn't talk down to his patients or their family members.

Could not schedule a visit for at least TWO MONTHS, after a one week stay in the hospital for my exacerbation of my COPD! Was told they only make asap appointments for new referrals ( Meaning new patient for their business)! Will not return to this office for care. I could cannot see any doctor in this group for an ASAP appointment regarding my condition for follow up care after a hospital stay.
