from Janice March 30, 2017 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

Dr. DeAtkine is currently my doctor. I have been his patient since he joined MDVIP. Dr. DeAtkine was also my mom's doctor since he began his practice in Birmingham. She eagerly followed him to his MDVIP practice.

My mom had several serious health issues. Dr. DeAtkine was always so thorough. He was very kind and patient with her. She was so proud that he was her doctor. She… See more

Exceptional!! Knowledgeable, Compassionate, Available, Goes above and beyond!!! All of these describe Dr. DeAtkine and his team. I honestly don't know how I could handle my health problems without him. The money I pay MDVIP is by far the best money I spend every year.

from Patricia March 29, 2017 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

Caring for a medically non-compliant diabetic husband and a 93-year-old blind mother with dementia for several years could have put this 65-year-old type I diabetic into an early grave. Thanks to exceptional medical advice and excellent medical care from Dr. D. during these years, I'm laughing, healthy, and looking forward. Dr. Deatkine gets MUCH of the credit for keeping me in tip top… See more

Every year, I'm more grateful for David's personal attention to me and my family. When I joined his budding MDVIP practice over 12 years ago, he made a promise to provide personalize service. He continues to surpass my expectations...even making house calls! Thank you, David!

from Donna in AL March 26, 2015 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

I have been a patient of Dr. DeAtkine for many years even before MDVIP. I tell everyone he has saved my life many times. He works well with other physicians when I must see a surgeon. I never wait in his office and when I have a problem I can reach him anytime. I thank God for Dr. DeAtkin and his office staff.

from Annie L. in AL February 26, 2015 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

My husband and I, along with many others in my family are patients of Dr. Deatkine. He has always been very punctual, concerned and attentive to our needs. Donald, my husband, has had some serious health problems and Dr. Deatkine has quickly had the diagnostic procedures done, thus saving his life on a number of occasions. He has a great bedside manner and listens to us which is very… See more

from Patricia (Trisha) in AL February 18, 2015 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

Dr. David DeAtkine GREATLY contributes to my emotional well-being as well as to my physical health. As caretaker for my mother, in her 90s, and my husband, who has frequent and serious medical problems, both of whom are also MDVIP patients of Dr. DeAtkine, I have occasions of immediate need for contact with a trusted medical advisor. Dr. DeAtkine provides assistance, advice, and excellent care… See more

from Nena in AL February 26, 2014 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

In October I was having shortness of breath. One morning I fainted and Dr. DeAtkine wanted me to come into the office. I had just had hand surgery 3 days earlier and we wondered if I was low on fluids following surgery. I went to his office and he offered to admit me to the hospital for tests or try a bag of fluids to see if that would help. I chose the fluids. As I left the office, he… See more

from Karen in AL February 24, 2014 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

Dr. DeAtkine has truly made my life and my husband's life easier. He is always just a phone call away. He responds promptly and always listens to what we have to say. He shows compassion and is genuinely concerned about our wellbeing. If either of us needs to see him, 99 of the time, he sees us the same day. Rarely do we have to wait. He and his staff are fabulous.

Thank… See more
