My mothers dr for years ! Dr Atkins has misdiagnosed everyone of my family members that have lived in Yates center ! He can't diagnose anything until it's too late and then sends his patients to Topeka , never to come home again ! It's awful ! My mama use to tell me , don't let him send me to Topeka because everyone he sends there for tests never come home ! Her worst nightmares came true ! She had cancer threw her body and he( Atkins) just kept giving her blood transfusions and never having her tested for anything else ! Unbelievable! Once she got to Topeka , she was told to get affairs in order ! They sent her to the nursing home in Yates center , where I flew from Oregon to take care of her ! Atkins would not even come by the nursing home for the whole week it took me to get her out of there . Then I went by his office to talk to him a couple of times ! Once his nurse said ohh yes , I will go get him , but NO ! Again unbelievable ! I took my mama and flew her back home to Oregon with me where she passed 20 days later ! 30 days is all I had because of a dr who cannot diagnose a cancer that's someone had ! Again unbelievable ! I had breast cancer , I was diagnosed and given the proper treatments , ( not from Atkins) ! I do believe that if she had been with any other dr. She would have been diagnosed properly and I would still have my mama today !! Worse Dr ever ! I've had uncles and cousins and several other relatives that had the same thing happen ! His answer to everything is send them to Topeka , right before they pass !!! Again unbelievable !!! From: a severely heart broken daughter, niece, cousin !!! P.S He needs to be done before anyone else passes away from him not diagnosing them !!!
