in West Chester, PA |
Dr Atkins is especially thoughtful and well prepared. On my recent visit, he had obviously done preparation on my case before I met with him. He took all the time we needed. I am deeply confident I am in great hands and exceptional care.
Broomall, PA |
Great!!!!
Norristown, PA |
He is one of the best in the field!
Wayne, PA |
Great experience, if any colonoscopy could be a great experience. More specifically I had intervention by the dock that was successful. He was on top of everything and personally called to give me results. Because of my situation I've had to return more often, family history. Every time has been positive supportive and personal touch.
in Newtown Square, PA |
I consider Dr. Atkins the best! He is very kind and extremely good and considerate. He found cancer in both my son and me. He has gone out of his way to schedule a appointment. I would not want anyone else for my children but the best.
