What People Say About Dr. James Atcheson, MD
I've struggled with Hypothyroidism and Hashimotos for about 10 years, Dr. Atcheson is the first doctor with whom I treated that actually listened to me and considered how a feel rather than making decisions solely on blood work. It's so nice to feel close to normal. I thank Dr. Atcheson for that.
