I don't always see eye to eye with my providers, but this man is a great doctor and a fine man.I am Blessed to have chosen him for my surgery and after care. I highly recommend him and his brother Paul. He is also caring for my older brother since he met Dr. Robert Atkinson after driving me to a few of my appointments. A truly caring and sincere doctor. Along with his brother Paul, they both gave me exceptional care for my procedures . Thank you Doctors Robert and Paul !

This is an update on my total knee replacement I had done by Dr. Robert Atkenson on March 3, 2016. It has been 5 months and My family and I just returned for Yosemite National Park. I consider my self very active; even at the age of 66. I am pleased to say after 4 days of hiking in Yosemite my new knee worked great. I honestly thought I would never be as active as I was 20 years ago. Our next trip is to Patigonia in South America. I give Dr. Atkenson a rating of 5 STARS. Thank you "Doctor Bob"

Had my right hip replaced by Dr. Atkenson with the Super Path procedure. Dr. Atkenson is very professional and and explains in detail, he answered every question that was asked. He will not let you leave until you feel that you(the patient) are comfortable and satisfied with the timeline of the surgery. Robert even gave me his cell # to call anytime I have a question. I give Robert and his Staff my highest recommendation. I know Robert will be my surgeon to replace my left hip when needed.

Been a patient of Dr Robert Atkenson's for 21 years. The way I describe Dr. Atkenson is you know you're going to like him as soon as he walks into the room. Dr. Atkenson has scoped my left shoulder,. right knee and left knee (twice). He has done full total knee replacements for both of my knees and has treated for multiple other reasons. I've recommended him to other family and friend who have been pleased. He's done an amazing job on my knee replacements.

Dr Robert Atkenson, over a period of about 15 years , has performed 3 procedures on my left knee. The final procedure done January 21, 2015 was a total left knee replacement. Dr Atkenson took a very cautious, but well designed rehab approach for my recovery. He knew going into surgery that my goal was to be able to ski in Colorado over the New Year Holiday. After 3 days and a total of 15 hours of skiing, I knew the surgery was a success!!!
