I always have a hard time connecting to doctors. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Atwood. He was polite, respectful, and patient. He listened to me and didn't make me feel like I was crazy. He took his time to explain everything and did not rush through the visit.

Spoke frankly about my health. I liked that we didn't waste time.

I saw his fellow first, Samara. She was excellent as well. They were courteous and quick and respected my wish to get out of there as soon as possible to pick up my son.
