HAPPY DOCTOR'S DAY, DR. DEATKINE, YOU'RE THE BEST. My MDVIP doctor's care has been the best decision I have made in my life. I truly believe that I would not be alive if I had not found him. For three years, I was unable to get a diagnosis of a major illness, of which, I was in the last stage when I saw him and I was dying. I got a tentative diagnosis first examination, pending… See more

Let me start with a little back ground information. Dr. DeAtkins took over Dr. Killan's patients, amoung those were my mother and father who suffered from diabetes with kindney and heart complications. Little did he know how difficult this task would be. They were both stubborn and willfull and for the most part in denial and thier health was already in crisis mode, I had my doubts for… See more

from Margaret in AL February 22, 2014 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

I was fortunate enough to get in with my Dr. D (as I call him) years ago. He has always been kind and thorough in taking care of my many conditions. When in the hospital, always checking, sometimes 4 times a day depending on my condition. He just had a heart to heart talk with me yesterday and convinced me (finally) to do something about my health. Shots and pills are not the solution,… See more

Have you ever ignored a red flag at the beach to suddenly find yourself in the grip of powers beyond your control? Sand scraping layers of skin, no contest between the strength of your limbs and that of the ocean, water filing, your lungs? Sorry, red flags up. No life guard is on duty.
For those of us who have multiple debilitating diseases, any day can be a red flag day. No life guard… See more

from Therese in AL February 18, 2014 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

Dr. David DeAtkine was my endocrinologist for ten years before he became an MDVIP physician. I joined his MDVIP practice in 2007 because of the excellent care that I had experienced.
Dr. DeAtkine is a very intelligent, compassionate and caring physician who has never dismissed a minor physical complaint as unimportant. His genuine concern is very evident.
My husband and I are… See more

from Albert in AL February 13, 2014 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

I find Dr. DeAtkine totally competent and caring. He takes the time to listen to my concerns and addresses each with compassion. I feel as though I have a partner in developing and implementing my healthcare programs. I have been with him for about five years and have recommended him to others and will continue to do so.

from Janmari in AL February 11, 2014 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

My doctor took care of my parents and I was so impressed with the care they received that I decided to make him my doctor too, best decision I have ever made. He is there whenever I call. I am in great health because of the very comprehensive care I have received. His concern for every area of my health and life gives me peace of mind and spirit. He is simply the best.
