Patient Comments (3)
Flatwoods, KY |
spent lot of time answering questions prior to surgery. surgery went great and all of my friends ask who did my knee. I was up and walking way before all of my buddies who have had knee replacement and my scar looks better
Pikeville, KY |
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.
