When I went on Medicare my previous Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor told me he no longer accepted that insurance. I was referred to Dr. Atkins. They told me he was very good. I agree with the other reviewers that he is a kind, considerate, supportive, and skilled practitioner. The Office Staff is friendly and efficient. He is not a "bone cracker". He gets results through gentle, targeted adjustments. I was treated after an auto accident and his adjustments greatly reduced my pain and prevented permanent damage. I was very comfortable with the professional atmosphere and would highly recommend him.

Instead of taking new ex-rays, he had me come in twice per week. When the surgeon saw my discs they said they’ve never seen a disc flatten to a point. No wonder I literally crawled out of Atkins office. I knew then I’d never come back. My injury had become so bad I had to use crutches to walk. I guess that wasn’t a big enough hint. Peter Atkins told me to walk it off. Shame on me for going to him. Shame on him for not following through with ex-rays that would have shown 3 blown discs and should have never touched me. Cash cow I was!
