Dr. Katherine J Atkinson, MD
unable to own mistakes, Dr. Atkinson has been my PCP for more than a decade, and during that time has made repeated misdiagnosis, some quite serious. An incident about my blood pressure was perhaps the worst, as one of a number of occasions on which she showed stubborn inability to be self-critical. I would never follow her advice without checking her grasp of the information she offered. She once offered my 15 yr-old daughter a benzodiazepine to address her anxiety.
