My experience was very pleasant. Dr. Atkins listened to my concerns, and his explanation was good. The injection which he recommended was quite painless.

I am a nurse and I did not agree with what he wanted to do and I did not feel that he listened to me.

I have visited Dr. Atkins for three different problems. He did my carpel tunnel surgery on both hands. I asked advise on foot surgery, He explained my options. I still haven't had that surgery. He and Scotty have been treating me for an infected cyst on my elbow. I will soon have surgery on the elbow to end the problem. Again he is explaining every option to me. He said the decision is mine. I respect that and the kindness of the Fox Valley Orthopedics team.

Dr. Atkins has a great bedside manner, calm demeanor. He was thorough in explaining my surgical procedure. My occ. therapist is able to consult with him at any time to confirm my therapy egimen for successful recovery. I feel I am getting the best care possible with Dr. Atkins and ATI.
