Justin Atkins, AGACNP-BC - Our Provider at Dr. Shima Hadidchi MD Family Practice

Justin is our office’s Nurse Practitioner, board certified in Adult-Gerontology Acute Care. In his role, Justin is uniquely qualified to manage the acute and chronic medical conditions of our diverse patient population. Like physicians, Nurse Practitioners are licensed to diagnose medical problems, order and interpret diagnostic imaging, perform advanced procedures, prescribe medications and make referrals.

Justin received his Master’s of Science from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, with a specialization in Hospital Medicine. During his advanced practice education, Justin worked extensively with Nephrology, Gynecological Oncology, and Cardiovascular Intensive Care at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was recognized by the Vanderbilt Center for Gerontological Nursing Excellence for his compassionate work with his geriatric patients.

As a member of the Society of Hospital Medicine and the California Association of Nurse Practitioners, Justin works diligently to stay current on treatment protocols and guidelines, which allows him to provide the best care possible to his patients. We are proud to have Justin on our team, and grateful for his thoughtful, evidence-based approach to treating our patients.
