This was not my original obgyn back in 2012 but she did deliver my son after an emergency came up and my original obgyn was not able to. Dr. Atkins throughly explained to me how to position myself and push during labor and it was a great first time experience. She saved my son from preeclampsia because she was there to deliver him and I am grateful for that and thankful to her for that. She even checked up on me the next morning. She's a beautiful woman who saved my son's life. Thank you!!!

Dr. Atkins wasn't available, so I ended up seeing her NP. I was hoping for a nice experience with her NP since I've heard great things about Dr. Lori, but she was impatient, insensitive, offensive and sarcastic. Didn't enjoy the experience at all, I will be looking for another OB.

Did not receive the care and attention I was expecting from Dr. Atkins. The exam felt very rehearsed/routine, and I did not feel like my questions were given the appropriate amount of attention or consideration they deserved. I brought up concerns with serious symptoms I was experiencing which she casually dismissed-jokingly asking her medical assistant if they'd personally had similar symptoms. Incredibly unprofessional and bordering malpractice. I felt unimportant, uncomfortable, and dismissed

Dr. Atkins and Dr. Farnetti are WONDERFUL. All of the nurses and staff are awesome and make you feel at ease. If you are looking for an OB who will just schedule an induction or C section, than this is NOT the doctor for you. Dr. Atkins likes for things to happen naturally and will carefully monitor you throughout your pregnancy. She wants what is best for you and baby, not your or her schedule. If you want the BEST-make your appointment today. Yes, she is busy and there is a wait- WORTH IT!!!!!

Very unorganized office. Called to make a new patient appt. and the front desk gals were swamped overtime I called and did not know what consisted in a new patient appt. Then I called to cancel the appt. I was placed on hold 2 different times for 10 minutes max in which I had to hang up. On the 3rd time calling when Desiree picked up and asked "could you hold please" i said " no, i was just giving you a courtesy call to say I will not make my first appt. and will not being going to this practice

Dr Atkins is an AWESOME doctor and so is her midwife, Farneti. However the front staff is often rude. I called with a billing question and the front office rep, Abby was very rude and condescending. She interrupted me and overtalked me numerous times. When I told her I would escalate the issue to Dr. Atkins, she replied non-chalantly "no-biggie". Although I like Dr. Atkins this coupled with the long wait times, I'm seriously considering switching doctors even though I'm pregnant.

Dr. Atkins is a very personable individual. I didn't feel uncomfortable going to visit her. She listens and answers any questions you may have in detail.

I strongly reccomend Dr. Atkins because she made me feel as if she truly cared about my health but also my life as a whole, she gave me a sense of assurance that I was in excellent hands. Dr. Atkins is a fabulous doctor and an extremely smart woman. I am always beyond comfortable at my appointments with her and her!! 10/10 would recommend!

This practice is all about money - not patient care. Dr. Atkins seemed peeved and incredibly rushed during my visit. After a quick exam, I was told I needed surgery for uterine fibroids and that this would be performed in her office. I told Dr. Atkins that I am an RN who works at an outpatient surgical clinic and that we frequently put women to sleep for such surgeries. Dr. Atkins, however, was persistent that this be done in her office. I got a second opinion and I didn't even have fibroids!

I saw this doctor once. She seemed knowledgable, but she was quick to tell me I needed surgery. She was not very agreeable to any other options. She did not do the labs that I requested. I was unable to reach the office staff to get my results. Before I even got results the office was calling me to schedule surgery. I asked to know my results. My ultrasound results were misplaced, so I had to wait for those. No call back except to schedule surgery. Disorganized and poor communication
