What People Say About Dr. Russell Atkin, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I would recommend, he has a lot of experience even though I would prefer a female with the same experience for reasons of embarrassment with some issues. Wait times to me are irrelevant, Actually the longer I have to wait, the more I know the MD is taking the time needed with a patient before me and not jarred by staff managers which is pathetic these days so, waiting is never my concern.

Highly recommend this excellent ob-gyn physician to young and older alike. Takes the time to talk over all medical history (goes over all medical issues..doesn't rely only on the history forms the patient completed); also, makes recommendations outside his ob-gyn capacity based on how the patient presented in the initial interview. Explained his plan of action in an understandable manner; encourages asking questions. I was a new patient who had to have bilateral ovaries removed at age 70.
