Taylor Atkinson, PA-C
- Physician Assistant
Taylor joined OAK Orthopedics in July 2017. She graduated summa cum laude from University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point. After playing collegiate basketball and participating in genetics research, she went on to complete her master's degree at Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin.
Taylor enjoys working on the surgical sports medicine team at OAK with Dr. Tom Antkowiak. She specializes in the shoulder, knee and hip but also sees a wide variety of other patient problems. Her approach as a provider is to establish a trusting relationship with patients and their families, providing education regarding anatomy and their diagnosis. Then together with the patient, she creates an appropriate individualized treatment plan.
One of Taylor's professional passions is assisting patients in decreasing their pain and improving their function in order to live a more active lifestyle. She spends half of her time seeing patients in clinic and half in surgery. She also provides care for many of the local high school and college athletes. She is the team PA for Providence Catholic High School. Additionally, she provides orthopedic urgent care coverage.
In her free time, Taylor enjoys playing basketball, lifting weights, traveling and spending time with family and friends.
