Dr. Atherton is a busy mother of 4, the youngest two being twins! Her and her husband made Longmont their home in 2010 and have enjoyed planting their roots here ever since. They love Longmont and have enjoyed meeting new people and familiarizing themselves and getting involved with the community. Most recently Dr. Atherton stopped by the local YMCA and did a brief lecture on plantar fasciitis, the common triggering factors as well as discussed early treatments and the importance of proper exercise shoes. On April 25th she will be participating in the annual Longmont Channel 9 health fair. Make sure to stop by and meet her if you haven’t done so already!
Last week Dr. Atherton was recognized for her outstanding service when she received the Caring Angel award from Mckee Medical Center. She provides her services at the wound care center there on a weekly basis. The Caring Angel program was started in 2009 as a way to recognize and honor physicians and employees at the Hospital. Patients and family members complete the nomination form to recognize the exceptional care they or their loved one received during their stay at Mckee. One of Dr. Atherton’s patient’s nominated her stating that she was “very caring, knowledgeable, personable and professional”. What an honor! We are so blessed to have great physicians like Dr. Atherton on staff at the Foot and Ankle Center!
