Self-verified patient of Dr. Robert G Atkind - Posted on December 30th, 2008
I like Dr. Atkind overall. He really listens and seems to have less ego than many doctors I've encountered. He answers lots of questions without getting impatient. I do get the sense that he's on my side and trying to remove obstacles. I'm not particularly impressed with the way he deals with patients AFTER they leave his office, however. I needed a prescription filled and I called several times over six weeks to see why it wasn't happening. At one point a member of his staff was quite rude. I ended up making an appointment just so I could find out why the medicine I had requested wasn't available. Seemed very inefficient to me.
