Thomas S. Atkinson, MD

About Dr. Atkinson

I specialize in Cancer Care. I became a healthcare provider because of the potential to affect positive changes in my patients' lives. My patients can count on me to provide extraordinary care because I believe that every patient is special, with unique needs and circumstances. I understand the importance of communication in our partnership. My mission is to help my patients heal and achieve the best health they can by serving as a guide through the often confusing and intimidating maze of cancer care.

In 2021, I was elected as a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. My clinical interests include Integrative Oncology, Palliative Oncology, and Geriatric Oncology. I have published in peer-reviewed journals and presented at national conferences in the field of cancer care.

My little something extra

I've been a musician since my teens, and in my free time, I write and record experimental electronic music.
