I have been a patient of Dr. Ateshims' for 10 years. He is an excellent physician, and caring human being. It's almost like we are extended family. You will usually have to wait past your appointment time; which I am willing to do, because he doesn't rush his patients and gives everyone his full attention. When a issue occurs that requires sending me to another specialist, I know he will continue to monitor my care. Best of all he always greets me with a smile and a hug.

He was attending physician while my wife was at Abrazo Arrowhead. He saw her ONCE in two days, was very dismissive toward her concerns, and became even more unhelpful (if possible) after we requested a second opinion. Definitely would not recommend.

This is one of the worst doctors I have ever had. I continued going to him for about 10 years just because I hate change. Plan on spending several hours here for your appointment. Hes NEVER on time. He does not listen and he doesn't explain very well. all he cares about is the payment. He rushes you in and out so fast you wonder how it could possibly take so long to get in and out. Wait an hour + even if early. and if he spends 5 minutes with you, it will be longer than most. Not even 1 star!!!!

Dr. Ateshim is the best. He listens! He humanizes the process of managing my health care in the best way; while making sure all of my health issues are given the best care possible. When I see him I know the first thing I will get is a hug, because he considers his patients more that just symptoms and illnesses. The office waits are usually long, and I know this; because he doesn't hurry his patients and I know when it's my turn I won't be rushed either.

Dr. Ateshim is a great dr and takes time with his patients. His limited office hours can make getting an appointment difficult. The only complaint is the frequent long waits in the office, realizing this is usually because he does take time with patients.
