Dr. Atkisson is wonderful! She is kind, compassionate, and really listens to you. Her staff is amazing. I've had many psychiatrists throughout the years and by far, she's the best!!!

Dr. Atkisson can run a little behind, but the short wait is worth it. She never rushes you out the door to get to her next patient. She listens to what you have to say. She is so great. She figured out what was wrong and life is so much easier now. If you are having trouble, I wouldn't go to anyone but her.

While Dr. Atkisson and her staff are friendly, she is never on time. We have waited for EVERY single appointment by 40 minutes to 1 hour over scheduled appointment time. On our last visit, she took patients out of order without even asking if we would mind waiting to be seen. We left after waiting 40 minutes. Shes a great physician.... if you don't mind being treated as if your time and schedule is less important than hers and apparently less important than the other patients in the room!
