I could be a poster boy for Sinusitis for having the most infections of my life. After my Claraflix, Cryo procedure two yrs ago, I had the first yr with NO sinus infections. I usually had 2-3 a season. It was an extremely pleasant feeling not to be sick for 4-5 months out of the year....yes, every yr. I'm grateful to Dr J Atkins for giving me a normal life. I just can't say enough of how satisfied I am with the outcome. I can be contacted by email if anyone needs more information.

Dr. Atkins is the real deal. He cares about his patients and provides what he advertises. How refreshing is that! I put up with sinus problems do over 30 years and after my balloon sinuplasty, relief! A life changing worthwhile decision. Definitely recommend.

About a year ago, I had a chronic sinus infection that wouldn't respond to antibiotics. Dr. Atkins suggested a sinuplasty and it seriously is the best procedure I have ever had done. I can breathe like I never was able to before and I have had zero problems with congestion in the year following surgery. He was very personable and professional. I enthusiastically recommend him.

Most offices are either really good at customer services and business practices and then their doctors don’t give you the best treatment because their concern in money and time. That, or they are more rare and actually care so much about patients that they are amazing and love taking care of people so well that the staff isn’t that great on business end of things. Well, the reason for that is because when you are in there they are truly listening and are amazing at what they do, how they treat

Dr. Atkins is fantastic, but the only drawback is some of his staff. Some of them could care less and don't return phone calls or follow up on anything they say they will.

Dr. Atkins saw my 16 year old daughter who has been suffering from severe sinus infections for the last two months. After 3 rounds of antibiotics from pediatrician, unable to resolve the issue , we were referred to Dr. Atkins. Dr. Atkins made time to see my daughter on short notice and treated her knowing that our insurance did not cover his services. He graciously treated her as he would have treated one of his own family members. It is evident that his first priority is patient care.
