Patient Comments (2)
Framingham, MA |
Not open to conservative methods, surgery first option, not willing to explore other treatment options. Do not recommend at all.

Thanks, for the space to express we, the patients, to speak of how wE feel about Dr. Atkinson. Although I've seen him once, and he is a, gentle man blessed with the gift of empathy and compasion yet he is straight forward and to the point on care. He is honest and minces no words. He took all the time I needed to answer all of my questions and I never felt rushed. I'm grateful I was referred to him. Nothing else would have measured up. Sincerest blessings.
