Avondale Estates, GA |
Really bad experience overall. Would never recommend to anyone
Roswell, GA |
Dr. Atefi is a great doctor. I appreciate his many years of experience. I had been to two other GI doctors, and neither of them took the time to diagnose me correctly. Thanks to him I feel so much better now.
New York, NY |
Terrible experience - after going to Dr Atefi w/ obvious major stomach/digestive issues - he offered no help other than to watch my diet. Didn't want to do a colonoscopy as he only mentioned the 'new recommendation' was to have one every 5 yrs - not considering my situation at all. I switched doctors and it was INCREDIBLE difference. New doctor got me in for a colonoscopy and we discovered issues I was having. Stay away - don't waste your time here
Cumming GA |
I have been with David for 10 years and I just have to say His so caring and both Millie and Tracey are wonderful and very sweet. We just love Millie she has always helped us with everything and even with our assistant program to get our medication approved. They both are get on keeping him going. Both offices staff are wonderful. Thanks guys for everything Millie and Tracey you ladies rock.

Se. Atefi found my cancer right way just by doing my colonoscopy. He order ASAP Ct scan and he called his nurse in the Cumming office that I saw him at Alpharetta and she scheduled my Ct scan with in the hour. Millie even called me the next day to see if De. Atefi called me and gave me the results she is a sweetheart. Dr.Arefi called me at 8:00pm and even spoked to Dr. Steis to get me in his office ASAP. He took time from his busy schedule to help me.

Worst doctor I've ever been to. 5 minutes appointment and even after I showed him my endoscopy report with gastritis he asked me what was I doing there. He prescibed a common medication in a piece of paper and that was it. And very expensive!
in Cumming, GA |
Absolute worst experience ever! Dr Atefi did not listen to anything. It was plain he did not review any information sent over by the hospital. Totally uncaring. He did absolutely nothing to treat me for my Crohns Disease. Gave me free samples for ulcerative colitis. I had to return to the emergency room because he did not give me the necessary prescription for medicine to continue treatment for a flare-up. The staff was discourteous, condescending and rude. They do not return phone calls
in Johns Creek, GA |
I had a colonoscopy done and Dr Atefi did not have all the equipment needed at the location so he could not do the entire colonoscopy that I had gone for. His diag was my Colon had colapsed and he could not pass his instrument to check completele and that I should schedule a follow up fo rthe next steps. When I went to the office for follow up, he said Everything is fine no worries Then when I pointed out what he mentioned at discharge time, he said Oh I am so sorry I did not read all.
