I want to thak you, but thank you doesn't do justice for what you have done for me. There were times I didn't know - where or how much pain I would have when I woke up. There were times that I even wished I didn't wake up. Thanks to you, I thank God I wake up every day. Before you, I had no quality of life. My life now has quality and maybe much more. I have 2 grandkids that I thought I wasn't going to be able to enjoy. Not only will I be able to enjoy them, but be able to interact with them. There were so many times that I was disrespected, treated like a freak, and even questioned about how much pain I was really in. But never in your office, from Priscilla to you I have felt care & respect. So thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

Saw Dr. Atlas with back spasms and various areas of nerve pain. Had double laminectomy on three areas and now walking one mile after one week out of surgery. No pain meds after 4 days! Fantastic!! Excellent surgeon and staff. Couldn't be more pleased with the outcome of my surgery.

I went though 6 months of terrible pain down my left leg. There was not a day I did not cry because of it. After 2 Drs I found Dr Atlas. He reviewed the MRI and explained to me what the issue was & recommended surgery. I had the surgery done on my L4/L5. The day after the surgery, I had the normal post surgery pain which was expected, but I knew that day that he had fixed the problem. The pain was gone! 6 months later, I feel great!

Aug 2nd, 2016

Radiology reports were briefly reviewed but not explained in depth. Full physical examination for extent of symptoms was not performed. Surgery wasn't yet indicated per MRI, and he seemed disinterested in discussing other modes of treatment. He has a good reputation for his surgical skills but I wasn't treated as a whole patient.

Dr. Atlas is the best doctor I ever went to. Always on time , staff is on top of everything, and of course, provides great care.

I couldn't be happier with the services provided by Dr. Atlas and his staff. I was in excruciating pain with a neck injury. Dr. Atlas was able to promptly see, diagnose, and treat me. Amazingly, I woke up from surgery pain free! His office staff from reception to check-out is pleasant and accommodating. While I certainly hope I never need his services again, I would certainly recommend Dr. Atlas to anyone.

by Lisa C on Jun 29th, 2016

I went to dr Atlas with excruciating pain around my hip, back and down my right leg. It curtailed my ability to walk, work, sleep, sit , drive. The pain was constant and intense with no relief. I even had steroid injections and the relief was minimal and came back just as bad within weeks. He, after trying conservative treatments that didn't work , did surgery (SI FUSION) and it helped a great deal. Although I have many other problems to address, it really helped excruciating pain down my leg and in my SI joint. I would go back and have it done again in a minute. The office staff is friendly, supportive, and helpful, as is Dr. Atlas. I would highly recommend them

Superior diagnostic skills. After seeing several specialists previously, Dr. Atlas and his Physicians Assistant (Robert Hager) accurately diagnosed my condition and clearly explained my options. The office staff is professional, efficient, and friendly.

Spent over an hour driving there. Waited 1/2 hour for him to see me. He over books his appointments. Then waited 20 minutes in room till he came in to see me, didn't even take time to look at the cd with the xrays of my back that I had all he did was ask me what problem was and I also explained I was trying physical therapy and all he said was keep it up. You would think he would at least look at the xray first.

Dr. Atlas has been the best spine doctor I have seen across the three states I have lived in. He was the first doctor to suggest a less invasive procedure before doing a more invasive one. He was right! After my surgery I was back up and walking. His staff and himself are always friendly, and offer very quick service.

A crucial member of my medical team. The only doctor I trust for spine surgery. Friendly, professional, and very thorough with treatment and followup care. The staff is warm, caring, makes sure all administrative needs are done quickly. Without Dr Atlas, I would be alive but not living life.

After years of living in pain from multiple spine problems whick ultimately had me walking in a bent over position that only allowed me to look at other people's feet, I have NO spine pain! I researched other surgeons, but none compare to Dr. Atlas. My first visit with him felt like I had known him and his staff forever...they have a wonderful ability of making you feel welcome and you just know they are there to help. And help they did...Thank you for giving my life back!!

My wife who is an OT and works with PT's got a recommendation due to the success rate of patients who came to the PT's for treatment after treatment by Dr. Atlas . He ordered me a new MRI and reviewed results/pictures with me and explained the options. I had a laminectomy and after 6 weeks post op feel a whole lot better. This followed 8 epidurals thru Rothman and being told surgery was not an option. Dr. Atlas's office handled all the insurance and hospital set ups. Listen to the recommendations of therapists as they see which doctor is best. I hope you heal well.

by eric holder on Jul 1st, 2015

I had an extreme pain all the way down my left after standing for five minutes. It was diagnose by Dr. Atlas as a bulging disc pressing against my sciatic nerve. I elect to have surgery which went wonderfully well and I am now totally without pain. I never felt as comfortable and confident with a Dr. and staff before as I was with Dr. Atlas and his staff. thank you for everything you and your staff did for me.

I always swore I would never let ANY doctor touch my spine. When it appeared that I had no choice, I interviewed several before selecting Dr. Atlas. He did not try to sell me on the kind of surgery he would perform but he spent a great deal of time educating me in detail so that I fully understood the approach he would use and I had NO doubt that he was the doctor I wanted working on my spine. The results have been spectacular, and my evaluation was fully justified. Further, has kept my wife in the loop at all times, and she shares my views.

.Dr. Atlas has treated me for neck and back pain for the past few years. I am currently pain free thanks to his care. He has surgically repaired bad cervical and lumbar discs. I was most impressed with his reluctance to rush into surgery. He first exhausted other options such as PT and injections. I have no reservations about referring family and friends to Dr. Atlas for any related problems.

by Joanna Davidson on May 23rd, 2014

Dr. Atlas has made me straight again! I have been battling Scoliosis since I was 9 years old. I had surgery back in 1986 and had Harrington rods installed and over the years my remaining discs became completely compressed and I was experiencing extreme pain from sciatica and spinal stenosis to the point I could barely walk or stand. I went to several doctors and Dr. Atlas was the most thorough and confident stating he could make me at least 70% better and for the amount of pain I was living with that gave me great hope. I went with my gut feeling and picked Dr. Atlas for this very complex surgery and am glad I did. I have received exceptional care from Dr. Atlas, his staff and Virtual Memorial Hospital in Mount Holly, NJ, before, during and after my surgery. I’m still in physical therapy recovering from surgery and Dr. Atlas always has made time for any questions, concerns, etc. I have had. He has even called on his personal cell to ensure I was feeling ok while I was in the hospital. I would recommend and have already recommended my friends and family to Dr. Atlas.

Hi, I was suffering with chronic and debilitating back pain for about 2 years. It had gotten to a point where I couldn't walk or stand. This is when I finally agreed with my family dr and had an MRI. It wasn't until I had the MRI that I came to terms with how bad it actually was. The Radiologist told me I needed to go straight to the ER for emergency surgery. Here is where I met the wonderful Dr. Atlas. Needless to say I was scared but Dr. Atlas eased all of my fears and explained every single detail. He advised this was the worse herniation he has seen in his career but he assured me I was in great hands and the surgery would be the only option. I am now 3 months post opt and I have to say that i am grateful to Dr. Atlas and his team!!! I am back to 100% with no pain. He literally gave me my life back. I would recommend Atlas Spinal to anyone! If you want a caring and knowledgeable Dr, who is a Top Doc in his field choose, Atlas Spine.

After 4 back surgeries over 20 years, I finally found a Doctor who actually relieved my back pain! I knew immediately after I woke up that the surgery was a success. I'm now 50-60% pain free. I felt so good that I was able to go home two days after my back surgery. Now I'm looking forward to pool therapy to get my muscles back in shape. And I'm looking forward to a much better life! Every time I see Dr. Atlas, I want to hug him for all he has done for me! You no longer have to go to Philly to get outstanding back surgery. BTW, the Virtua Memorial Hospital in Mount Holly was unbelievable. Super clean. The nursing staff was very professional. They couldn't do enough for me.

by Joanne S on Aug 28th, 2013

After several years of suffering with multiple back issues and consulting with "the best " doctors for relief, Dr. Atlas was recommended to me. He was truthful with me from the very start. I had to choose between the pain and the weakness in my leg which was causing me to trip and fall too often. Without explaining the long version of my story, I chose to deal with the weakness in my leg. He explained exactly what he would be doing and the outcome he expected. Six weeks post surgery, and the expectations were reached prior to this time. The pain has returned with increased activity as Dr. Atlas warned me. But the dangers of the leg weakness have been thwarted. Perhaps at my 2 month visit we can come to terms with some of the pain. I was warned of Dr. Atlas' " lack of bedside manner" prior to my first visit, but the warning was unnecessary. I found him to afford me all the time I needed to thoroughly understand what he was proposing. He sometimes speaks too quickly, but has no problem repeating or rephrasing what he says. He's given me hope where I had very little. A "Top Doc" in my book!

After 119 days of complete leg numbness, massive pain and 5 other spine surgical consults I found myself meeting with Dr Atlas, this was my last stop! I can not say enough good things about him and his staff. Dr Atlas took the time to listen to me and review all options available for my treatment. He made sure that surgery was the best decision for me my health and his own safty during the procedure. He explained every little detail to make me and my family comfortable prior to, during and after the surgery. Four hours later I was up and walking around the hospital with no assistance and more importantly with no pain. I could not be happier with a doctor. Aside from Dr Atlas, his staff is one of the best office straff's I have ever dealt with. They are all friendly happy faces all the time and extremely accomidating to the paitents needs. i have never had to wait more then 2-3minutes in the waiting room. Shannon and the girls are the best and they work for the best! Dr Atlas proved that you do not "have to go over the bridge to the city" to get the top notch care from a specialist thats needed. Dr Atlas will have all of my recommendations for years to come!

The care I received from Dr. Atlas and his staff was nothing less than professional. Dr. Atlas provided me with a concise diagnosis within moments of my first consultation. His genuine concern and empathy were both comforting and relieving. I felt confident in his competence and his diagnosis of my condition. I felt no concerns about the surgery and was never worried. Shortly after the surgery Dr. Atlas visited with me by my bed side and reviewed the procedure. Dr. Atlas and his staff kept me and my wife well informed every step of the way and never left us wondering what would happen next. Dr. Atlas' staff are warm and personable as well as competent in every definition of the word. I hope that I never need another spinal surgery or surgery in general at all for the rest of my life, but if I do I would not have anyone other than Dr. Atlas and his team of professionals perform it.

I had a lot of pain in my back going on 4 years & I felt like I was out of options. I was getting the shots in my back but after about 6 weeks the pain was back. I couldn't stand for longer than 10 minutes & walking was really difficult. My wife was tired of me complaining about my back. I had to do something about it. Dr Atlas was recommended to me from a Dr. So I made an appt. with him. I had all my x-rays & MRI films. Dr Atlas said I had Spinal Stenosis. After he explained the surgery that he would do after he looked at all my films. The staff schedule my surgery in Janurary & everything went good. I have no pain & I can do things now around the house that I was neglecting before. My wife is happy that I am not complaining anymore. It is amazing why did I suffer so long, but I had to find out about Dr Atlas . He is a Great Guy & a Great Surgeon. If anyone is suffering with back pain don't wait make an appt. with Dr Atlas.

My mother had back surgery with a neurosurgeon thoracic back in 2001 for a herniated disc. She has never been the same since this surgery and has always had pain, frequent falls and her left leg dragging. The pain and symptoms became worse and her family doctor ordered and mri which showed that she had cord compression. Her PCP told her to make an appointment to see Dr. Atlas. She called on a Thursday and was given an appointment for Monday of the following week. When we went to see him he pulled up her MRI films and told her he needed xrays and gave her a script and sent us to Larchmont Imaging. He told us when we were done with the xrays to come right back to his office. He then reviewed the xrays and discussed her options. He told her because of the cord compression, that if this was not fixed, she would eventually become paralyzed. We opted, of course, for the surgery. Shannon had the surgery scheduled for 2 wks later and had all of the appointments for her clearances scheduled (3 different appointments) Then came the day of the surgery and Dr. Atlas was AMAZING!!! He met with us before the surgery and then again after the surgery. A few hours after surgery, the feeling returned to her toes which had been numb and the pain down the left leg and along the inside of her legs was gone. I told him he has magic hands! In closing, Dr. Atlas and his staff are the most professional, caring people that I have come across in a long time.

Dr. Orin Atlas is the most kindest and patient Doctor that I have ever met. He has helped cure my horrible back and leg pain. He is very patient and spends as much time with you as you want. He gives you options that are available for your condition and patiently helps you pick out what is best for you. His staff is awesome. They assist you and are courteous and get you an appointment quickly. You get to see him exactly when your appointment is. Dr. Rob is also the most kindest and patient Doctor that I have ever met. If you want a back and surgeon doctor that you can highly trust, you must visit this office. I will never go anywhere else. They ease your concerns and are, in fact, concerned about only your best interests.

I went to Doctor Atlas with back and leg pain that I had been suffering with for years. He took the time to explain my condition and recommended a surgical procedure that would cure my condition. Today I am pain free.

I was unable to stand in one place for more than 5 minutes and could not walk more than a block without severe pain. I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. It is now almost 4 months after Dr Atlas operated and I am free of pain. Everyone involved was extremely helpful

I had a spinal fusion in the cervical area after experiencing loss of strength and feeling in my hands, after reviewing the MRI, Dr. Atlas expressed a sense of urgency to get it rectified. It is now week three post surgery and I have all my strength back and getting better every day. The staff was wonderful as well. Very curtious, show attention to detail, and are reliable on documentation needs. I would highly recommend Atlas Spine, and Dr. Atlas to anyone.

I had a Level 1 Fusion on my lower spine (L-5). Dr. Atlas was wonderful in explaining the surgery details and what to expect after surgery. It has been 6 weeks since my surgery and my back feels better than it has in YEARS! I know I will never be 100% better but I feel 100% better than I did before surgery! Dr. Atlas staff was wonderful in setting up all my appointments (MRI, Dr. Appt., Hospital appt., etc..). I would highly recommend Dr. Atlas in the future.

AMAZING! For years I sought relief from what other doctors said was "an intractable pain - incapable of any relief". When I initially saw Dr. Atlas I immediately felt something I hadn't thought of in years - HOPE! Prior to meeting Dr. Atlas I was wheelchair bound, in horrific pain, feeling utterly worthless. Every day I prayed my life would end so I could know peace.Dr. Atlas performed surgery on my spine, inserting what are known as a Harrington rods from my neck to my pelvis. Dr. Atlas would joke at times saying "pelvis; rhymes with Elvis...I'm all shook up!". Oh well, he got me to smile. Life is so different now - no more pain, no more wheelchair. Last weekend I ran in the Princeton Half Marathon - my time wasn't great, but I finished. Dr. Atlas took my loser lifestyle and turned it around to make me a winner. Every day at my job - even my boss, will look at me and say "you're a miracle, a real miracle."

Dr Atlas takes the time to get to know you as a person. He is extremely sympathetic to the life altering effects back pain has regarding quality of life, ability to function, and do the things you love. He shows interest in his patients emotional health working to continue one's ability to maintain as active a life style as possible with out causing further injury. I trust him to always do what is best for me. In fact I have taken my son to him as well and as everyone knows, to put your child in the hands of any Dr. a Mother has to have complete belief that said Dr. will treat your child as though he were his own. I think that speaks volumes as to his dedication to his patients and their well being.

No one, until Dr. Atlas, diagnosed my problem correctly and recommended the appropriate treatment. Thanks to Dr. Atlas I am now out of pain and can continue living a very active life. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone!

I saw Dr Atlas for spinal stenosis. He walked in the room and said "you need surgery and if you're worried about dying on the table don't be ridiculous" He never went over my other very serious medical conditions or the fact I am on Coumadin. He also said after all of that, that he didn't even look at my MRI films. I wouldn't lt that man treat the worst person alive!!!!!

As numerous trips to the emergency room, and being sent home with pain pills, this doctor took the time to evaluate and perform emergency surgery on my husband that safed his life. My husband had an abssess on his spinal cord that could have burst and this was the one and only doctor that took the time to discover the problem and fix it after at least 3 trips to the er. Dr. Atlas's follow up care far exceeded any expectations. Thank you Dr. Atlas because of you I hope to have an other 28 years with him

Dr. Atlas - I would recommend him without hesiation to anybody how has a spine problem. He took the time to explain the procedure to my wife and myself in terms that a lay person would understand. Even better he would be a person that you would sit down with and drink a cold beer with. I can't say enough about how great of a person he is. God bless him. John Scott

Dr. Atlas was terrific! I have seen countles doctors over the years and Dr. Altas was superb. The office staff was kind, courtious simpathetic and attended to my needs. My appointment with the doctor was insightful and hopeful; he suggested waiting on the tumor surgery due my neurological disorder, but sent me for a "new" type of PT. the Pt worked and I am actually walking now with the aid of a forearm crutch. I would definately see Dr. Atlas again if needed and strongly reccomend him.
