Dr. Atchison is a wonderful surgeon. He did my total knee replacement in 2012 and did an amazing job! I highly recommended him. He was very informative and listened to me. A rare find in today's world. I can't thank him enough for my new life because of him.

Seemed very knowledgeable, but would not due to lack of experience in specific procedure. Was rather late (nearly an hour) and spent less than 5 minutes during the "visit". Very vague about other options, and stated he would provide other MD references that could treat condition along with better procedural experience, but never received a call and had to go back to square one. Not impressed.

Dr. Atchison is an excellent surgeon. Process and surgery center help ensure favorable outcomes. That said, it is a cattle call, and more patients seen by the Physician Assistants than not. You're hiring a surgeon and everything else taken care of by staff. Also, don't miss your pre surgery class and begin exercises before surgery. Problems with insurance paying for both an anesthesiologist and anesthesia nurse so was out several thousand dollars with my knee replacement. Check before.

Late and very overloaded, busy. Also, short with very little explanations of disease and processes. Not much personality, either. Did not go back.
