Testimonials from patients of Dr. DeAtkine

from Hugh in AL March 12, 2018 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

Experienced a hospital stay only weeks after becoming his patient and he was incredible in supervising my case. There are three family members who use Doctor D and we agree that he is the best investment we could possible have in our health.

from Barbara in AL March 9, 2018 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE


1) Is he a detective, since he asks me lots of questions? (A few of which I don't like to answer)
2) Maybe he is a psychologist because he can sense when I am troubled. And unlike most doctors... I never feel rushed.
3) Certainly he is a scientist, since he is so adept at analyzing my physical state and offering solutions… See more

from Sharon Deep in AL March 5, 2018 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

Since meeting Dr. DeAtkine over 10 years ago, my whole attitude for routine type 1 diabetes doctor visits has change. The care provided by him and his staff has been excellent and life changing.

Excellent diagnostician, great listener, unpretentious, pragmatic, respected by… See more

from Helen Claire in AL March 3, 2018 for David DeAtkine Jr, MD, FACE

I met Dr. D when I owned a shop. He came in with his wife for Christmas cards and I told him I needed him as a doc but I heard his bedside manner was less than desirable. His wife fell in the floor laughing and then I became his patient some 15 or so years ago. BEST CHOICE EVER. He has seen me threw a few bad times. But most importantly he doesnt discount my aches and pains. He listens. The… See more
