Athmar is a great doctor - very relatable and thorough in her explanations!

Dr. Athar is so wonderful. She listens to what you say. She also will sit back and look at you, she does not spend any time she is with you typing in the computer, you are her only focus. Too many Drs are more interested in their computer than the patient. I would recommend her to everyone
