Ratings for Dr. Ken Atkinson
Had a gastroscopy with Dr Ken Atkinson. As expected, I was nervous about the procedure. From the moment I arrived all the staff were so warm and friendly and put me at ease. Dr Atkinson spoke to me as well before. He was very informative, personable and comforting. I don't recal anything that happened during the procedure and had zero pain or discomfort before, during or after. What a great experience for a medical procedure.
It's impossible to make an appointment w/ Atkinson. The receptionist will just not answer the phone, not to mention that their automatic phone system is completely flawed. Call the telephone number > listen to the automated message for the extension number >enter the extension number > hear the phone ringing > wait for the receptionist to answer but nothing happens > automated message system automatically loops you back from the start Rinse and repeat a few times until you randomly get an option to leave a voice message or receptionist picks up. I think it's time for Atkinson to get a new office clerk and reprogram their automated message system.
I have been a patient for 2.5 years now and could not be happier! I have a complex case and did not respond to various medications and Ken & Shauna did their very best to find a treatment method that worked for me. Excellent staff and very knowledgeable - Now with my follow-ups I am in and out of the office quickly and never need to wait.
Had a recent colonoscopy at the New West Surgical Clinic with Dr Atkinson. From start to finish could not have been treated better. Since it was my first, I was quite apprehensive but my worries were needless. All the staff were kind and thoughtful, and all my questions were answered. Dr. Atkinson explained everything as it was happening and I would recommend him and this surgery centre highly.
Been with him for about 5 years now and he genuinely cares and takes interest in your general health. The best thing, though, is that I don't think I've ever had to wait past my appointment time in his waiting room, and I'm usually out of there prior to my appointment time even begins (I get there 15 minutes early). Every other medical office/clinic I have to go to I know I'm in for a 30 minute wait at the least. When it comes to his quality of service, I am confident in his knowledge, experience, and recommendations. He is relatively open minded to trying different things and definitely gives my own perspective a lot of consideration.
