First, he gives you a hand-written receipt for everything. My insurance company accepted it, but hassled me a lot because it was hand-written. He needs to get with the times, and use a printer for proper paperwork!Second, I only needed a tiny "thing" removed from the side of my head, just behind my eye. It was about half the size of a pencil eraser, but Dr. Atkin made a cut nearly 4 inches long!!! And it bled so much; I could have sworn his assistant was going to call for an ambulance! Third, his stitching was so poor there is a horrible scare! I spoke to a plastic surgeon, and she was very surprised to see that the puncture marks from the stiches were still so visible 8 months later; not to mention the 4inch scare itself. I only found out later that a plastic surgeon could have performed the surgery and my insurance would have covered it. My advice, stay away from that butcher Dr. Atkins! See a dermatologist for diagnoses, but see a plastic surgeon for the surgery!
My 15 year old son has been seeing Dr. Atkin for acne treatment and recently had a mole removed for cosmetic reasons. I have been very impressed with the way he talks to my son directly and with calm compassion. We have been able to get in quickly every time we've called. My son was not at all nervous about the surgery and we were very pleased with the thought and care that Dr. Atkin put in to the incision and stitches. The scarring is minimal and will blend in with the natural lines of my son's face. I was even comfortable enough to go in and have a skin cancer check done on myself - not a ton of fun - but Dr. Atkin made it ok.
I have to say to all the people that come on the web site like I do to find a Dr. and read what people say about them is that Dr. Atkins was a great Dr. the office staff was wounderful and the Dr. helped me understand what was wrong with my skin. I think that the people who came here to write some of things they did is they want a free ride in life and want everything for free. the sad thing is you are putting a good Dr. down and all he is trying to do is help you.... I want to tell you all that I would refer. Dr. Atkins to my friends and family and I would see him again.... thanks
