she was extremely knowledgeable, but she seemed a bit cold and in a rush. She also seemed to become extremely flusteres when our 6 month old grabbed her necklace. I got up and grabbed my baby because of this as her tone with him was inappropriate in that moment.

We LOVE Dr Atkuri. She is the PCM to 4 of our boys, the oldest wanted a male dr. Dr Atkuri is always so attentive, she is great with responses on my chart. And, is efficient but, thorough throughout the appointment. All of our boys are so lucky to have her to help us keep them healthy. The staff and her nurse are great too. It is hard to get through to the clinic if you call the main number because the call center doesn't like to patch you through but that really isn't the fault of the clinic.

From the front desk, to the nurse, to the doctor all the way to the young lady who took our payment, my expectations were surpassed. I was so glad and relieved to have such great care. We are new in town and I asked for this doctor to be my daughter's primary. She went above and beyond, she was a great listener and a fabulous bedside manner. It helps so much because I know my daughter will have less anxiety about going to the doctor if necessary again.

Dr. Atkuri has given our children the best care over the past six years. She is attentive and has always included us in the care decisions for our children. Dr. Atkuri noticed things in our own kids that we didn't and made sure they received the best care. She has always been available for our concerns and has helped us navigate illnesses with our children with ease. I'm short, I am grateful to have trusted her with my children's healthcare and would recommend her to anyone.
