I had Dr. Atkinson complete my vertical sleeve gastrectomy in July of 2015 at Spring Valley Hospital and in less than a year I have lost 90 pounds. I am a 5'4 female and I weigh 167 lbs currently. Dr. Atkinson gave me my life back, he has incredible bedside manner, he is very ethical and concerned with his patients, I highly recommend him to any obese individuals who are looking for lasting results.
