Ratings for Dr. Leigh Atkinson
Dr Leigh Atkinson is an incompetent fool. His reports to the insurance companies are nothing short of FRAUDULENT!! After seeing him, he stated that I was fit to go back to work. I find this to be weird, because the neurosurgeon and Spinal surgeon I was referred to in the public health system, have provided paperwork to my Super fund saying that due to my injuries sustained in a workplace incident. I am no longer able to work! Another FRAUD employed by Workcover Queensland !
This guy is a joke, told me he didn't need to see any of my mri reports or scans, apparently he can tell what it wrong with you just by looking at you! Told me there was nothing wrong with me except that I was fat! I am 5ft 8 female and weight 63kg and wear a size 10 clothing. His report to work cover was exactly that and because of that my claim was closed. An appeal with Q-comp had me assessed by a panel of specialists who determined I had an 18% disability. Within a month of his assessment I was taken to emergency with severe pain and was operated on within a day. Total idiot who will say/ report whatever so work cover don't have to deal with your claim.
He is a very very smart person who has devoted his life to helping people ,if I could accomplish half of what this man has done in my life time life time I would be very happy of who I was , I think if you have had a bad experiences with him then it was just that you did not like being told something that you would not have a clue about , I have read some of the reviews on here and thing to myself that the people that have nothing nice to say should go and learn about it for them selves , I also think that the people that have not had a pleasant time with him is because he has no time for lies and fools who think they know what there on about , he is a very down to earth person and will tell you it straight and a lot of people don't like that but on the other hand some do , but at the end of it all I think he is a very intelligent man far beyond the likes of myself and all of this negative people .
He told me my orthopedic surgeon Dr Shihrad doesn't know anything, he argued his opinions and disbelieved my opinions. Didn't answer or resolve my pain issues. In his opinion I don't have CRPS and virtually the 2 other doctors don't know anything - spent most of my 1hr consult reflecting on me drinking caustic soda in 1961 and entering Nambour Mental Health in 1997 nothing relating to breaking my left hand in 2015 and being in severe increasing pain since Dec 2016 after a bone graft and plate to repair the damage
completely ignored problems I have with back injury sustained at work at IME for workcover again ignored issues having did independent review on me than treated me at Wesley pain management an ignored problems again do not trust this man. I have referred him off to health ombudsman over conflict of interest doing work for workcover than treating myself. He is a liar who does not care about anything except making his pain program look good how much does work cover pay this disgraceful man
I have found Dr Atkinson to be EXTREMELY helpful concerning and to really go out of his way to make sure that I as a patient who NEEDS help with pain management get ALL THE HELP I need. He treats me like a human being speaks to me not at me and explains everything . If you really are Ill and have major problems this Gentleman is wonderful. He is not a fool and he can see through fools easily I do not understand the terrible reviews as I have never had anything but exceptionally great treatment and care from this Doctor
Absolutely disgusted. How dare you put down every other neurosurgeon and doctor and say they are liars. You have 1 star reviews they have 5. U need to retire. And stop telling everyone same thing. U cause people to have depression by the way u treat them.
