in Waldorf, MD |
Dr. Val Atavas is wonderful. She is compassionate, intelligent and professional. I had issues with my mother that involved elder financial abuse, hoarding, mental illness, dementia, and uncontrolled hypertension that led to a series of strokes. Dr. Altavas was able to adjust medications reducing the possibility of continued strokes, referred my mother for further studies with on of San Diego's best neurologist, Roberto Gratianne. I would refer both Dr. Altavas and Dr. Gratianne to everyone!
