I agree she is a good listener but not good clinically. She wasted years of my time and her pace is too slow, I kept wondering why she isn't doing more for concussion. I had vision problems diagnosed by a Neuro-Optometrist that she dismissed. She wrote in my notes I was malingering my symptoms for disability. Unbelievable. In that case stop treating me and refer me to someone else. When she didn't know that Lasix and Furosamide are the same drug I was out of there. Go to a Board Certified Dr.

Good listener and that's about it clinically. Would not reccomend. If a Dr is easy to get an appt. with and has no board certifications maybe there's a reason. Caveat Emptor,

Misdiagnosed me. Also just couldn't care less when I had a serious concussion. Went to Penn and they ordered the proper tests, and I had the proper diagnosis, which allowed me to get treatment. If I would have listened to Dr Atkinson, I would have been in serious trouble.

She was my Dr. for 5yrs and more at Crozer and I was shock when she left. She listen to what the problem that you was having. Then she would discuss with you about what you wanted to do. I misses her because she was a friend also.
