Verified Patient Reviews
I was in and out quickly but did not feel rushed with the Dr. He did a good job of explaining my treatment plan.
Dr. Atkins treated me with full professionalism, & understanding. He did not rush thru his explaining my illness & he was able to examine me thoroughly with patience & care. He was also able to explain why I had what I had & why I felt as I did. Dr. Atkins made me feel relaxed & made me feel important, as he continued to explain all my concerns. Dr. Atkins, I honestly feel, one of a kind.
Doc and staff were very friendly and efficient. I threw Dr Atkins a curveball with my travel plans, and he was able to deal with that and get me going on a treatment plan.
straight forward, not rushed, highly recommend him
He was very knowledgeable and professional. The nurses and staff were great as well!
Thank you! I feel like my sinus infection is finally going to clear and we'll get my allergies under control.
Excellent plan for my medical care
My first visit with Dr Atkins and I'm very impressed with their new patient onboarding process, his courteous staff and his bedside manners.
Very very nice, the wait was longer than I would have liked but no too. If of a deals
He was great, on time, and the front office people were great too. The office is going to call my insurance and verify the test and cost before I come in for my next appt. Great!
Best doctor in San Antonio for ENT related issues. Great staff & very knowledgeable PA Lori Rollwitz .
This was my first visit with Dr. Atkins. I'm pleased with his approach so far. I have another appt in 3 weeks. Will see how that goes.
Dr. Atkins is very focused and listens. I greatly appreciated his expertise and treatment strategy. Finally a solution to my sinus problem.
He was very nice and efficient.
Great service and friendly staff!! Dr. Atkins was very informative, explained everything with great detail and answered all my questions. Told me what the plan was to deal with my situation. Overall, loved it! Looking forward to getting my situation resolved.
Very thorough and thoughtful approach. I hope I don't have to go back, but if I do I'm sure that Dr Atkins will be able to help me get better quickly.
Highly recommend Dr. Atkin, just disappointed in the wait time. Seem to be overbooked and we waited almost 45-50min for a 9am appt. When called up for paperwork I noticed there were 5 people signed in for the exact same appoint time and same doctor. I understand a little overlapping to be cost/time effective but this just seemed a bit much that early in the day. To be fair - some of the time delay once we were in the room seemed to be software not working properly as well for the staff to place info in.
Excellent, very informative
In my visit to the office I saw 10 maybe 15 people go in before me. Some were already there, that is fine but 6 people arrived after me and they still were seen before me. I arrived at 2:15pm early for my 3:00pm so I can fill out the paper work I know all doctors ask for and at that I finished well before 3 and still didn't get seen till 5pm . That is just wrong.
I met with both Dr. Atkins and one of his PA's they were both very professional and discussed my problems and and appropriate course of action. I think they recommended a very reasonable course of treatment and we will see how it works out. They were very good at listing to me and my concerns.
Just wish something could have been done to fix sinuses today instead of having testing done. But it is probably for the best this way. I am tired of sinus issues!
He was very kind and informative
He is real and down to earth - positive experience with a true knowledgable professional.
Very professional. All staff was happy and friendly. Made you feel welcome.
Dr. Atkins was very nice and took time to explain what he was going to do. They were able to do a CT scan right there in the office which was nice...he was able to go over findings right away. He was clear on his recommendations and a plan. The office was very clean. Office staff was very nice. Hector and Kristen both were very courteous.
Awesome Doctor, very friendly, and made me feel comfortable in his recommendations.
He really cares about his patients and wants you well...!
Very friendly person who showed genuine interest in my health problem.
I really liked this doctor and their office. I had a bad experience with a different office beforehand and Dr Atkins caught things the other place didn't. He was very nice and I was seen immediately both times, hardly any wait. The staff is nice and they're all very knowledgeable. I'm so thankful I found this doctor!
great.to the point
I loved every bit of it as we discussed my issues and got them taken cared of so I could breath all the better now.
Overall Excellent Drs visit
Staff was very courteous and had very little wait from time pf appointment.
I wish I would have found him years ago.
Dr Atkins and his staff was very curtious and efficient. Dr Atkins explained my sinus issues and mapped out a definite plan of action.
I thought he was awesome. Informative and right to the point. My kind of Dr.
This was my first visit and didn't know what to expect. I was in and out in record time yet treated with great customer service. Looking forward to my follow up next month when I meet the doctor.
I felt Dr Atkins and his staff were knowledgeable and professional. However, while being seen, I felt a bit rushed, especially; during the time when Dr Atkins was in the exam room. Overall, a good first visit. Will wait until after more appointments to form lasting opinion.
Very positive experience
Professional, courteous, and quick. Staff was great.
So different from what I am used to. Dr. Atkins wasn't in a rush to finish the appointment. He sat down and answered all of my questions. Staff was very friendly and accommodating as well.
Dr. Atkins and his staff are friendly, approachable and down to earth. The exam was quick but he spent significant time going over the details
Dr Atkins is very knowledgable and professional. He is very thorough and you are always seen on time.
Dr. Atkins and his great staff are very helpful and caring. Highly efficient, yet very personable.
My wife was very pleased with the overall quality of care provided by Dr. Atlins.
This was my initial appointment with this specialist. He was thorough, a good listener, and answered all my questions. He performed what I consider to be the appropriate diagnostic procedures for my condition, and I left there with clear and adequate information for a proper follow-up. I would recommend Dr Atkins others suffering from sinus problems.
I thought it was more of an ENT then a sinus/allergies office. But Dr. Atkins was great. He did ref. me to someone that help me with my ear problem!! so I was very Happy!
Unfriendly and spent very little time with me. Website and commercials all advertise a great new procedure for dealing with sinus problems, but in actuality it appears that procedure only applies to a small percentage of patients. I felt he had no new suggestions to offer me for dealing with my sinus issues and allergies. ALSO - VERY IMPORTANT - they do an in office procedure (I think a CT scan?) and it is very expensive and they give you no indication of the cost ahead of time. Make sure you ask them what the cost will be.
Dr. Atkins does not diagnose or analyze problems superficially. He has a keen analysis of problems and offers new solutions. Wonderful patient interaction. Compassionate and sympathetic.
I was totally impressed by his willingness to listen to all the previous experiences with dealing with my sinus problems. In office CT was performed quickly and treatment proposed. Amazingly efficient office. I have already recommended him to others who have suffered for years with these issues and did not think anything could help them.
We'll see back in three weeks but I'm very hopeful
Dr. Atkins fully explained what was happening throughout the process and handled my problem quickly and with little fuss. I will go back for other problems I did not have time to address on this visit.
Dr. Atkins was professional, but seemed like he was in a big hurry. It was difficult to ask questions and pretty stressful, to be honest.
Always professional and informative. Staff is a joy to work with and the wait time is almost non existent. Definitely recommend.
great, would definitely recommend. Very knowledgeable, confident, and listened to my symptoms
Friendly staff and clean facility. Both Jennifer and Dr. Atkins were friendly and informative but it seemed like Dr. Atkins was in a rush. He was informative to my concerns but I need time to digest information in case I have any questions. I'll be back in a couple of weeks for an allergy test.
Staff and doctor were very professional and helpful.
Very through and gave me a plan of how he was going to treat me in the short term to a long term.
Dr. Atkins will have me as an ENT patient for life. At my age, I see many doctors, but this one knocks it out of the park every single time.
Very informative, friendly
Dr. Atkins and his staff were really helpful and seemed genuinely concerned. The wait time was minimal and the staff was highly attentive. I have been to a lot of doctors due to my persistent sinus problems, so it was encouraging to have Dr. Atkins care and have some potential solutions to explore. They were able to call in a prescription right away and schedule a follow up appointment.
Very professional. Very efficient. Very up-to-date. Very knowledgeable. No personal connection whatsoever. Nothing and no one is ever perfect.
Very easy to take to. Considers his patients needs and gave treatment options.
I felt relieved very trusting that my problem will be resolved
He told me what was going on and was really thorough. I appreciate the manner in which he handled my case
A+ Excellent service!!!
I really felt cared for and safe. He was thorough and he has a great sense of humor.
Thorough, pleasant good treatment plan
Personable and on target
I had a great experience with everyone I encountered at Texas Sinus Center. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. The nurse,Jennifer was extremely kind and explained everything in great detail. Dr.Atkins was very knowledgeable, and certain he will find a solution to all my sinus problems. I like that he is innovated and searches out what the best treatment is for each patient.
Everyone was very nice.
The entire staff was completely professional and answered all my questions.
Very pleasant and professional.
Dr James knows the issue right away and he is very clear explaining the problem you have. He tells you your problem like he is in your shoes. This shows very high experience levels. I trust him.
The staff was very nice and the nurse was excellent and very polite. Doctor Atkins was very professional, but very friendly.
The doctor and staff are are very nice and knowledgeable. The office was comfortable. I would definitely recommend this doctor to others.
It was good. Entire staff was professional and seemed to know their line of work. Follow up is set for 3 weeks. So far so good!
Staff and Doctors very friendly
The visit went well. Dr Atkins gave me a lot of information. It has been a week and I still have not received the follow up information explaining charges for the surgery he recommended though. I explained to him that my insurance would be ending at the end of the month and there was an urgency to get this matter resolved before then and I expected to recieve information quicker so I could make my decision.
Despite being late for my appointment I was seen by Hector within 10 minutes. Everyone was extremely pleasant and helpful. Dr. Atkins is very professional and listened to me as I explained my problems. After he examined my sinuses, a scan was done right there in the office. He acknowledged my problems and I was given a program to follow. The visit was worth a 30 minute drive from Fredericksburg and I will continue with Dr. Atkins in the future.
I was seen promptly, staff were wonderful.
Dr. Atkins explained his treatment plan and I was hopeful that I will get the results I am looking forward to help with my sinus problems.
One of the very best for sinus problems.
Excellent. Took time to recommend Drs to me since we are moving back to San Antonio. Always a pleasure to visit.
He listens to what you have to say and is extremely up to date in his field. He performs cutting edge surgeries in his office.
Appointment was great, he was clear and concise and I'm fully confident that he will get to the bottom of my sinus problems and help clear them!
Whole office very efficient and friendly.
He's the Best!!
very pleased, he listened to me, he explained my situation thorougly, he gave me options to consider, very professional
I thought it was all very professional and Dr. Atkins left me feeling reassured he was going to make me better. Kudos on his assistant Hector, very intelligent and made me feel well taken care of. I really loved that they didn't send me out for all the different tests they did on me, what a time saver, not to mention, stress saver.
Great and friendly visit. Thank you!
Found the entire staff to be most helpful and Dr. Atkins easy to talk to and understand. I would recommend his office for your needs.
Very well pleased with the staff and Dr. Atkins. Very satisfied with his procedure.
Best Doctor I have ever been to. By a long shot!
It was a good experience. I look forward to continue to have him look into my issues.
The staff were very polite, professional, and helpful. Hector was very nice and totally knowledgeable about his job. Dr. Atkins answered all my questions, provided all the information I needed to know, and made the whole experience a pleasure. Other doctors' offices need to take a lesson from the Texas Sinus Center.
Awesome. Very professional
It was brief and fast so I didn't feel like I was able to get all my questions answered.
Really nice Dr and staff...
The problem did not require an extensive examination so the prognosis and treatment were performed rapidly which was good. The doctor was just a bit to hurried though, in explanation and question answering, wanting to move along to the next patient. On the other side of the coin I appreciated not having to wait more than 30 minutes to see the doctor.
personable and covered all of the bases to figure out what is causing your problems. I was very satisfied with my visit.
Specialist at what they do. They are direct, to the point and don't waste your time. Very professional and appreciated.
Greatly appreciate a well run office.
Was able to accommodate my need for a prompt solution before the end of year.
He knows what he is doing. I explain my situation and right away he explain me what to take and for what reason. I need to come back so he can check my progress. Definitely recommend Dr.Atkins.
The staff was very friendly and efficient. Dr. Atkins did a great job letting me know what to expect at my next visit and what I needed to do to prepare for the next visit.
Very pleased thus far.
That was one of the best office visits I have ever been through. It was very clean and everyone was professional.
Fast, Professional, and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him. I usually hate going to see any kind of doctor but I had a great experience here! I am well on my way to feeling so much better!
I found him to be quite knowledgeable and easy to understand. I've been dealing with allergies and sinus problems for years and have lived in several states and have been to several ENT's. He definitely listened and offered a game plan. I can't thank Jennifer Welch for referring me to him. She was right. He is good!
Dr. Bauer is thorough, pleasant and well educated and I feel very comfortable with him in charge of my care.
