This Doctor was the single person to complain to the Arkansas Health Department to complain about a harmless plant that helps countless ppl who don't want to take the far more dangerous drugs that this Doctor wants to prescribe to you. Kratom is the plant I am speaking of, look it up for yourself and you find nothing about any dangers and tons of ppl who take this plant and it improves their lives. This quack cares nothing about your health, he only wants your money. Dishonest as they come.

From information I've obtained this doctor is following the same path as other doctors who only are in the profession for money. By recommending kraytom for the list of dangerous drugs his patients are only limited to the most dangerous drugs,

Dr. Atkinson has a very myopic view of people and medicine. He treats his patients with methadone and suboxone (highly addictive prescription drugs) yet is responsible for banning Kratom, an herbal supplement with a wide-scope of treatment applications. He has limited the treatment options for the entire state of Arkansas. Since he mostly treats addicts/recovering addicts he views people taking herbal supplements as trying to get high. He sees addiction pathology everywhere he looks.
