Dr. Atkins has been seeing our daughter for a year and a half. He has been very responsive during crises and has been a constant, solid presence in her life. Our daughter trusts him and he has a unique way of allowing her to express herself yet steer her in the right direction. A few times we felt he was not listening to us as parents but this changed in time. Our daughter has depended on him. We also like his more conservative approach to prescribing medicines.

Dr. Atkins has been nothing short of incredible. He has helped our daughter so much. He has such an amazing way of respecting her needs and her individuality but also understanding that there is a family around her that loves her, cares for her and wants the best for her. And he helps her to understand that. We are so grateful to him for helping find the right medication and dose for our daughter's conditions and thank him always being so available.

Dr. Atkins has been working with my family for the last 4 years. He is professional, compassionate and wonderful with children. I would highly recommend him and his entire office of professionals.

Dr. Atkins has been invaluable in helping to identify the medications that are right for me. I have seen several psychiatrists over the years, and Dr. Atkins has been by far the most competent and receptive. He does not prescribe medications as a "quick fix", and is great at working with you to create an individualized treatment experience. He is also knowledgeable in other treatment areas, and is helpful in recommending services that can be used in combination with medication (e.g. yoga).

No replies to phone calls, no one ever picks up the phone. Calls always sent to a vm that never gets returned. Increased fees. Providing meds that I don’t feel patient has been properly diagnosed for.

I was disappointed in Dr. Atkins' care. I didn't find him to be particularly compassionate. I only saw him for about a year and he increased his fee numerous times over that short time period.

Tried calling Dr Atkins multiple times over the course of a 8 or 9 days. I never got anyone to answer my calls or return my voice mails. Each call went to an answering machine. My last attempt I let my call go to the office coordinator and wouldn't you know I got an answering machine here too. This one let me know that they would be out of the office for several more days. 5 star rating ? Any Dr that doesn't return calls isn't worthy of any stars. Pathetic.
