from Marianna in AL March 1, 2018 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

I have been a patient of Dr. DeAtkine, for many years and have always held him in the highest esteem. He is one of the most considerate,if not the most considerate, doctors I have ever been in contact with. If there is a new med that he feels will be better for me there is no hesitation at all in taking this step. The kindnesses of both he and his staff will always be remembered by myself… See more

David DeAtkine changed my life for the better when I joined his MDVIP practice 15 years ago. No more endless waiting room waiting. No more frustration trying to interpret multiple doctors opinions. And Hello to personalized, knowledgeable care...even including home visits when needed! Bravo, David DeAtkine!

My story is DrDeAtkine is always available to meet any of my needs. He is very personal always asking about my family I deeply appreciate and trust his advice. His staff is also the very very best !!

from Elbert and Marilyn in AL February 28, 2018 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

Dr. DeAtkine and his staff are very caring, knowledgeable, kind, and always willing to go the extra mile to help with our health needs. We know we are good hands with our Dr. and his staff.

from Jim in AL February 28, 2018 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

Imagine a doctor that slows down and sincerely asks you about how you are doing . . . and how your wife is doing . . . and how your parents are doing. And truly listens. And then acts. That is Dr. DeAtkine. He is a throwback to an earlier age of family doctors, but armed with a clear sense of modern practice and possibility.

from Leland in AL February 28, 2018 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

Both Rita and I have complete confidence in Dr. DeAtkine as he balances our health needs. Over the years, he has not only served as our doctor but had become a friend.
We salute Dr. DeAtkine on this special day.
Thanks Doc!

My Dr DeAtkin has kept me alive for the last 11 years and kept me flying the entire time. Couldn't have asked for a better Doctor.

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.
