Dr.Attaway has been my primary care physician for several years and I am very pleased with him and his staff. Very understanding and accommodating if special circumstances occur. He's a great listener. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

listens to what I have to say and truly seems to care how I feel!
Lilburn, GA |
Dr. Attaway has helped me tremendously, whether I appreciated it at the time or not. This is the doctor you want to stay with. Listens, works WITH the patient to come up with a solution, and he hasn't failed once as my doctor for over three years now.
Bristol, TN |
Dr. Attaway has been my doctor for over 10 years. He is very supportive, takes times to listen, and is very knowledgeable. Even though I have moved away from area, I continue to see him as my primary doctor. He is ALWAYS available to talk if I have concerns! WONDERFUL doctor!
in Snellville, GA |
I've been seeing Dr Attaway since he moved to Killian Hill. He's friendly, he LISTENS, and he never rushes you out the door. Sure, I'd like to be able to call and get an appointment RIGHT THEN, but that doesn't happen with any doctor, especially good ones.
in Lilburn, GA |
Constantly late on refilling prescriptions- even before weekends and at times when I have called the office multiple times a day for severa days, he and his staff have written my dad'a prescriptions multiple days late every time for three months. We have not heard so much as a gracious word from him since my mother died in July, or an apology for putting my dad through withdrawals during her funeral. The pharmacists at Rite Aid have also noted how late they are and now know me by name.
