After seeing another orthopedic surgeon at a University setting, it was refreshing to find a doctor willing to spend time and do a thorough physical exam. After my surgery, all my friends who had similar surgeries could not believe how much faster I recovered and how small my scar was

After examining me and reviewing my history, Dr. Atkins told me my pain wasn't coming from my hip. There was obvious swelling and at times I had to drag leg because pain was so severe. He didn't believe I had a labral tear. He didn't believe anything was wrong. I left there in tears. 4 months later I had hip scope. 10 things were repaired in my hip. Surgeon said I must have experienced excruciating pain. Dr. Atkins treated me as if I was faking it. I have the OP reports to prove I wasn't.

He operated on my son's hand several years ago. He set expectations for healing, he was very kind, considerate and professional. The outcome was better than expected! I am making an appointment for myself for knee treatment.
