Dr. Atkins was my 2nd cancer doctor, but was the 1st and only one to treat me. He sat me down and explained what was happening (he was the 1st doctor to call it a cancer) and even recorded the discussion for me to take home. I have never had a problem getting to see him or getting an answer that I UNDERSTOOD. All the staff that I encoutered or observed interacting with other patiets were sincere and outstanding.
