Ten years ago, I was misdiagnosed with Meniere's disease by a Harvard-trained ENT. After having to wear Scolpamine patches for 30 days to just get through the day and suffering anytime I would lie down, a friend recommended Dr. Atkins. He and his staff are the best! After two treatments I was completely cured. I highly recommend Dr. Atkins to anyone who has balance issues!

The best place ever !!! I was diagnosed with Vertigo (BPPV) left ear, They are the only place I know of that has a Chair that performs the epley manuveaur on you and you are cured when you are done !!! no surgery, no drugs !! 90% of patients that get this treatment are cured!!! It makes me sooo sad to think about how many people a day are living with this nightmare (BVVP) and get misdiagnosed every day!!!!

I was having the worse episode of Meniere's Disease. I had been vomiting with Vertigo for 20 hours having no sleep the night before. My husband called the emergency number that was given on his office recording. To our surprise Dr Atkins answered the phone at his house, listened compassionately and called in an anti nausea pill that was easy to take. By my 3rd dosage I fell asleep, awakened the next morning feeling much better.
