Does not Care

Dr. Atkins is a lazy physician who does not care about his patient experience at all. I do not recommend him to anyone.

Five Stars

He was my advocate in Kaiser. You need for your psychiatrist to recommend the appropriate individualized care, and he did this, despite Kaiser's incentives to deny care.

One Star

Found this doctor to be arrogant and have terrible bedside manner. He was not sensitive to letting me know my diagnosis and was very accusatory. I had such a negative reaction after my last visit with him I will be changing doctors.

Good doctor

He was a good psychiatrist and gave me individualized care. Any limitations in the care he provided were because of Kaiser and their antiquated approach to providing mental health treatment. Hopefully with the ACA, class action lawsuits and State of California fines, that will change.

Nice Doctor

Dr. Atkins is great. Most of our interaction is over email. He is always considerate and quick to respond. Easy to ask him any questions even after my health care switched and he was no longer my doc.
