    Very kind and not judgemental, I felt supported.

    She has a natural approach to healing and I like that. She cares about the patient and getting to the bottom of the problem, not just masking it with pills.

    Dr. Atwood and the entire team were so kind, caring, and professional. They made a hospital-phobe like myself feel comfortable and welcome. I could not have had an easier or better experience. Dr. Atwood went above and beyond to make sure that I was comfortable, and for that I'm truly grateful.

    She was very friendly very nice, very explicit. She explained things very well. And I was happy with the treatment that I got and the diagnosis that she recommended.

  • Jun 18, 2019

    My provider was very friendly, but did nothing to help my injury. They offered some advice that I had already been following at home, even though I clearly stated that it had not been working. Finally, I said that I was very concerned with the swelling and my provider did not address the problem once.

    She really listened to what I was telling her and she was very good at examining me and diagnosing my problem. She took her time with me and I never felt like I was rushed out of there.

  • Mar 09, 2019

    She was wonderful she went right away and asked me the questions that need to be asked and she helped me with my situation and I got some medication to help my medical concern, which is helping great. I feel good. I feel better than I have in a while. So I really appreciate that and she actually recognized something that no other doctor is recognized in the last year and a half, that I'm going to see a specialist about so I was pretty happy that she actually took the time to figure out what the medical concern is that I had and she did a great job at resolving the reason I came in. I totally recommend her and I might even get her for my primary if she's available.Thank you.

  • Mar 06, 2019

    She's excellent.

  • Mar 06, 2019

    It was awesome.

  • Mar 03, 2019

    My last visit was terrible! My PCM is on maternity leave, as a result my care has ben subpar! My last visit was ended abruptly with no explaination, I felt as if I was inconvenience to her.

  • Mar 01, 2019

    We were overjoyed with our experience this day with this provider as well as her associate that was helping out and training that day. We seriously were shocked at how great the entire office was.

  • Feb 18, 2019

    Ashley was wonderful to work with and was very thourough.

  • Feb 15, 2019

    Dr.Atwood was nice and prescribed something to take for my cold. She said she would call me bk on Wednesday to see if I was any better. I phoned in and told them to tell her I was pretty much the same. I haven’t heard back from her after telling her that. I thought I would hear back, but today’s Friday and I have still not heard bk from her. I’m not happy about that.
