When I met doctor Henry Atkinson for first time I was really bad I was not able to walk I just pull my leg and I take to many strong tablets from GP and this destroyed my body, after six months in Doctor Henry treatment I stop taking pain killers,he really change my life for better and now I can walk properly I don't take pain killers , is the great person and best doctor I ever see in my life. I recommend to everyone to go and met him ,
From the moment Mr Henry Atkinson introduced himself to me in the waiting area at Highgate hospital, I was impressed. He was courteous, confident and charming. His subsequent efficient examination and expert diagnoses of my knee only confirmed that I was in the presence of someone who really did know what they were doing! His insistence that I had an MRI scan to ensure that he was on the right track added humility to this list of virtues. From diagnoses through a number of less invasive treatments over 10 months to my eventual decision to have an operation Mr Atkinson added honesty, compassion and a genuine wish to ensure this patient got what he needed. The operation was expertly carried out and on the day of the operation I spoke with members of his surgical team who had nothing but praise for this kind man's expertise. I am still recovering from the operation and things are already much improved. I have already advised a friend to see him and I would have no hesitation in advising others to do so.

Very professional consultant. Excellent empathy with patient. Satisfactory treatment and outcome for my medical condition. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Atkinson.
I have been under the care of Mr Atkinson for almost two years during which I have received exemplary care. I saw Mr Atkinson initially after my knee injury. He discussed the implications of the MRI scan, gave me a diagnosis, discussed options for rehabilitation and repair, and gave clear, accessible advice on how best to help my knee recover functionality. He took time at repeated visits to explain the surgical options and choices available to me, and the likely outcomes from proceeding (or not proceeding) with surgical repair. I felt fully informed, and involved in those discussions, and it was clear that the decision to proceed (and the pace to proceed) was my choice. Following my decision to go ahead with surgery, Mr Atkinson took time to explain the procedure, to be honest about the recovery period, to offer reassurance about progress, and gave clear advice about how best to ensure my knee returns to as optimal function as possible. During my actual stay in hospital, Mr Atkinson was clear and reassuring in describing what would happen prior to surgery, and returned to ensure I was recovering well after my procedure and again the next day. I felt at all time in very experienced, skilled and kind hands. The kindness mattered immensely: that I was not just another procedure, but a person with a knee that stopped me living my life fully, and that he was determined to help improve. Following surgery, he have gave wise counsel about rest, was clear in what sort of exercises would help (and what might not), and helped ensure I got access to appropriate physiotherapy to support my recovery. I am not sure I can think of any way in which my care could have improved. Mr Atkinson was reassuring, wise, supportive of my choices (for example, my dithering about whether to proceed with knee surgery because of home renovations was greeted with sympathy about needing to ensure the timing is right). He made me feel reassured about surgery, and the procedure, and I received all-round excellent care. During my appointments with Mr Atkinson I have always felt listened to, reassured, and part of a joint decision-making process (no pun intended, but I'll take credit for it). Mr Atkinson is clearly a very skilled surgeon, understands how injuries and procedures might affect patients, takes time to articulate things in a way that laypeople can understand, and is kind. I am immensely grateful for the care he gave me in order to help return me to a normal lifestyle. Thank you.
