Ratings for Dr. Katherine Atchison
An amazing family physician! Since 2005 when she took me into her care, I have traveled from far and wide to have her as my GP; she now cares for my husband and children and we wouldn't have it any other way!! My kids love their chances to see Dr. Atchison :)
Dr Atchison is a great doctor & a great person. She is a very kind, compassionate doctor which is rare these days. I have fibromyalgia & she is the first doctor who understands this illness. I appreciate everything she does to help me. She is a great doctor & a great human being.
I wrote earlier about another doctor making up lies to her about me, while I did my own researched showed him he's done this before and she says stop there "Once your my patient, you are always my patient!" I BAWLED!!!! she is the most kind hearted understanding doctor I have EVER had. She gets me. I suggest seeing her as a walk in at horizon either in sylvan or red deer (because she can't make appointments if your not her family doctor) but she's amazing and I wouldn't trade her for anyone else!!
Where do I begin. I was in a series of bad car accidents since I was 18(now 27) so I've been on painkillers for a long time. I got. Pregnant at 25 which I was taking Tylenol 3s (mind you by this time I had only seen her a couple times) those were not working so at 38weeks my blood pressure went high so another Dr. And I decided to induce me. I had the baby ( I also have been on depression medications and anti anxiety meds because of trauma I had experienced) anyways, she was so nice after I had my son she said she would take me on as a patient we got my medications worked out.. my grandpa had a heart attack. He the strongest man I kno. Dr. A got me my backs cans my bone scans but didn't get the ones from the chiropractor.. needless to say I ended up on a program here in red deer ( I told her about it she stopped prescribing my meds right away) .. Now, this new pharmacy I went to they would talk about me to other people (I know because they were my friends ) totally unprofessional. I told this dr. I wanted off of his service come June 1st because he wasn't helping me he made me feel useless. Oh and at this certain place make sure they grab all the urine cups out of the window when I put mine there there was one in there and a lady went in right after me. He told her I was seeing different Dr.s (I was only seeing the ones at horizon) anyway I don't deal with that other place anymore. This new place is amazing .... I am very hurt that she doesn't even want to see me anymore I don't know what to do. But she's an excellent dr. I recommend her 1000000000%
I have to say I dont go to her anymore she was a good doctor very caring and sometimes helpful ..But she did send me to someone that I didnt need to see that is what change me..Now I have found amazing doctor that takes is time and really listen to you and cares ..Never had a doctor phone me when they are on holidays to just tell me all my test come back good..To me that is a Doctor....
