What People Say About Dr. James Atchison, DO

While I wasn't Dr Achison's patient I accompanied my daughter during her treatment for CRPS. Under his care she progressed from a wheelchair back to a normal life. His skill, understanding of this disease and empathetic approach gave her back her life.

Dr. Atchison has been incredibly helpful and got me through the toughest and most painful period of my life. I have Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) in both feet. I was afraid I wouldn't walk again. Thanks to his treatment, program & routines he introduced to me, I am successfully managing my pain without any opiates. I now walk, drive, peddle a bike & work full time. I couldn't be more thankful that I found Dr. Atchison. He knows his stuff, doesnt rush appointments, and is very likeable.
