I love Dr. Atkins she's so easy going, my kids love her. She listens and thoroughly goes over everything with you, I was so excited when she moved from Dr. Chandra's office because I hated going there. The atmosphere of her office is so laid back and family orientated they never make you feel like you're bad parent or it's your fault our kids get sick. The front desk and CNAs are always so cheerful and never have attitudes.

Absolutely useless doctor. My child would have died if I had listened to her...I took my child to her 3 days in a row and told her that he had fever and he looked ill. She kept telling me that it is a virus. Finally, I took him to the ER and he had double pneumonia- he got admitted to the hospital for one week and got antibiotics in the iv. I am also planning to complain about her to the medical board.
