If you are looking for an Urologist look no further. Dr Atkinson is a very professional, compassionate, caring and detailed doctor. I thank God we were introduced to him to take care of my husband. He listened and thoroughly answered all our questions and concerns. He is not an in and out doctor. I had to contact his nurse and my call was returned in less than 20 minutes. Thank Dr Atkinson and staff!

Very unprofessional doctor and not very compassionate. I would not recommend him to any one. Very pleased with his staff, just not with him.
