Caring Doctor! show details Caring Doctor!
by Kim S on Apr 19th, 2015

This is one very caring and compassionate doctor. Bonus is that he is an extremely smart doctor. He took his time listening to my problem and did not over prescribe which has been my experience with other docs. If anyone is looking for a family doctor, see Dr Athalye. He is a busy doctor but I don't think my family and I can trust anyone else. As long as he is practicing, (which I hope is a long long time) we will be his patients.

Dr Athalye came highly recommended by a family friend since we just moved to Scottsdale. So my family and I established with him. At our first appointment as my wife has MS, he sat down with us and very patiently discussed her entire medical history. He did not rush us. No other doctor has ever done that. They are satisfied with paperwork we fill out. Not this one. He discussed all the medical options we have, called us with our labs and was absolutely wonderful with our two kids. I don't think we will be needing a pediatrician. Dr Athalye is going to be our FAMILY doctor. If you need a doctor who cares and really knows his trade, this is it. Dr Athalye, I wish more docs were like you. Thank you!

Dr. Athalye is one great doctor. Kind, patient and extremely smart. No beating around the bush here. He will outline all your options/scenarios and walk you through everything. He will not prescribe you unnecessary meds. I recommend him very highly.

I generally don't write reviews but I will this time. My family and I are so grateful to have found Dr Athalye. I have a special needs teenager and he was so caring and patient with him. We were waiting on a specific lab result for my son and we were very anxious about the results. Dr Athalye called us at home after hours to tell us the results. He is one of the most compassionate people I know. And an extremely intelligent doctor. We had gone through 4 other doctors before we were referred to Dr Athalye by a family friend. If anyone needs a doctor who knows medicine, this is it.

Dr. Athalye is an amazing doctor. Takes his time and is very compassionate. Plus, the fact that he follows his patients in the hospital is a huge bonus. It's slightly harder to get an appointment with him now than before - probably because he's becoming well known for being such an excellent doctor. My parents were his patients, followed by my wife and I and now I can't have anyone else see my kids but Dr Athalye. If anyone needs an internist, I very highly recommend Dr. Athalye.

After seeing multiple doctors, I am extremely happy to have found Dr Athalye. He is patient, understanding and very caring. He is a busy doctor but that's with good reason. It is hard to find doctors who know what they are doing and actually care. I have been to many a doctors who have had time for lengthy appointments but none them were able to accurately diagnose my illness. They were prescription fillers. I needed a doctor. Dr Athalye just did not give me medicines and send me on my way. He was more interested in diagnosing my illness and treating it. He wanted to plan my recovery. Now that's a real doctor. I would very highly recommend Dr Athalye. And today, because of him, I am able to enjoy a quality life with my husband and kids.

THE WORST DOCTOR EVER. show details THE WORST DOCTOR EVER.
by BOB on Jan 10th, 2014

Patient Mill plan and simple. I had three appointments with the guy and he maybe spent a total of 5 minutes with me. If you need anything fixed or changed, don't expect for him to do it out of the "kindness of his heart,"- be ready to break out your wallet (even if he writes the wrong dosage on a prescription!).

My family has been seeing Dr Athalye for the past year and we are so grateful to have found him. He is compassionate, honest and an excellent doctor. He ALWAYS takes his time with us and treats my family like we are HIS family. When my father was diagnosed with lung cancer, Dr. Athalye was on vacation, and he still called us directly and spoke to us about the diagnosis and options. While he was in vacation!! Now that's who I call a real doctor. They don't come like this anymore. Thank you Dr Athalye.

I had a rare illness and had been to several doctors around the world. Seen specialists of all kinds. No one was able to diagnose what my condition was. Then I finally met Dr Athalye. This was a boon from the Gods. He was able to diagnose my condition instantly. I got treatment done which required medication for just a few weeks. I would highly highly reommend Dr Athalye. He is worth the wait......You want a knowledgeable doctor who can diagnose your problem then this it.

by Guest on Feb 13th, 2013

Dr Athalye only schedules 10 minutes for each patient, exactly 10 minutes. If you are late you are out of luck. No other doctors in the same office will see you even if you cannot get an appointment with Dr Athalye -- a policy I never encountered while visiting other doctors' office. The office manager is extremely rude and threatened me by citing the law which she interpreted incorrectly. Although I have been a patient for years... I am changing doctor.

Sep 19th, 2012

Dr. Athayle has been my Dr. for some years now. He is always attentive, caring and professional. Whenever, I do have questions he is always ready to answer them and doesn't rush me if I'm still not understanding. He takes the time to make sure that I'm comfortable in my understanding of my health. I had a 3 day stay in the hospital awhile back and he was there each day checking on me and working with the other specialists as a team. I would recommend Dr. Athayle to anyone looking for a really good family Doctor.

Jun 24th, 2012

I have a feeling this practice is one where the MD's are alloted about 10 minutes per patient. Dr Athalye spent all of 5-6 minutes with me, then recommended a diagnostic test that he would have known would be harmful to my health if he had only listened. Everyone can have a bad day so I'm not saying this visit was typical. Be advised Scottsdale Family Health is a high volume practice, and if you don't mind being treated like a number, it may be okay for you.

I have NEVER had a worst experience show details I have NEVER had a worst experience

They employee young ignorant boys for their scheduling staff that dont listen or pay attention to what patients are asking for. I requested a physical exam appointment when I got there, the 2 front office ladies, did not smile did not recipricate when I said good morning, very rude and bossy. I got there 25 mints earlier than my appointments once the nurse took me in the office after checking my vitals she said so you are here for and orientation I replied by letting her know that I was there for an physical exam she told me to let the Doctor know when he comes in, waited in the office exactly 35 mints and when he came in he mentioned the same thing as the nurse that I was there for a orientation & I replied by telling him no I WAS there for a Physical, Dr. Athayle replied by saying that the front office had only scheduled him for a 10 minute visit with me and I would have to make another appointment for any other concerns I may have or I could take it up with the office manager.I asked to speak with the office manager they told me that he was not in, I called later that day left a message for the office manager Mr. Quin, he has not replied at all.So now my insurance has been charge, I have paid my $25.00 co pay and none of my concerns have been attended to still in pain and have to find a new doctor make appointment and hope this nonsense does not happen again.Doctors these days DO NOT care about patients!! Its all about money and they are SO scared of insurance companies!!

Jan 12th, 2011

Dr.Athalye,pronounced Ottley,runs his office like a walk-in clinic,booking every 15 minutes and rushing through appointments. In a year and a half he never did a complete physical or mentioned a follow up. He is very brusque. For example, when he diagnosed a very painful illness, he said, "you have --, it's a progressive and incurable, take Nsaids, and ran off to see his next patient. He never even bothered to recommend a specialist. I was shocked at his insensitivity. If this is the kind of care you want, by all means see him.

Dr. Athalye comes highly recommended within the physician community. Being a physician myself, I find Dr. Athalye to be an astute and compassionate physician. He is the primary care provider to several of my colleagues and their families. We are very fortunate to have a physician of such high calibre in our midst.

by drlkb on May 18th, 2009

As a just retired physician, I research my choices through other medical professionals to find that doctor who treats many of my colleagues. He is a friendly, pleasant and warm individual who enjoys his practice and has a good grasp of his material. Generous with samples and detailed advise, he would not hesitate to refer to other specialists with whom he would work as a team. Convenient location to Scottsdale Health Care Center - Osborn, his office is comfortable and well appointed. He has helped my through some serious health problems like a lighthouse on a stormy shore. I do not hesitate him to recommend him to be your family physician.
