*Dr. Atala has a good bed-side manner and genuine care for my other children.


I like *Dr. Itala, he is always so thorough. We love him.


Very kind.




After waiting close to 3 hours he return and greeted us as if he had just met. He did not realize we have been waiting for him to return.


Dr. Atala is by far the best urologist I know, and Eva (my daughter, patient) has unfortunately had to go through quite a few. We finally found him after multiple local doctors in Charlotte who could never figure out what was wrong with her health. Atala pinned the problem immediately, scheduled testing, and planned a solution. The amount of time he spends with us every visit is impressive and he is always thorough. I trust him fully in his knowledge, and he listens to what I have to say as a parent. It's a true testimony when a child looks forward to and even sometimes counts down the days to when she can go visit her doctor. Atala is a big deal in our house.


I was very impressed with *Dr. Atala and how he cared for my daughter and wanted to find the cure immediately.


*Dr. Atala was great!


He explained everything in details. We understood how and why because of him. Very thankful for a great doctor.
