“I'm receiving excellent care from Atou. I'm very impressed and lucky to have her as my caregiver. She takes her time with her patients which is rare these days. I highly recommend her to anyone."
“Atou is an excellent practitioner. Her knowledge, positivity, and professional explanations helped me understand and accept my illness. I am on the path to improve my health and well-being because she took her time and walked me step by step through the treatment I needed. When she is talking to me she makes me feel comfortable as she never judges my past decisions, but explains the possible outcomes if changes are not implemented. She is very carrying and talks to me, answering all my questions. I am very happy to be able to have her as my provider.”
“She is absolutely the best. She is knowledgeable, caring, and helpful. She listens to your concerns and discusses your treatment with you. She truly cares about her patients, you don't feel like a number at all. I would recommend her to anyone! Her knowledge and people skills make her a true find!”
"Atou has been my nurse practitioner for over two years now! As a matter of fact, I was first treated by her when I was 4 weeks pregnant & they discovered I was hypothyroid. I was terrified! As a first time mom & now having to be tested monthly after a new diagnosis, I was simply scared out of my mind. Atou took the best and most amazing care of me AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, my son in utero. One can say she was my son's first nurse! She's INCREDIBLE!"
