Our Primary Care Plus Providers

Harry Chaikin, MD, FACP

"I practice primary care internal medicine. That involves being on the 'front lines' working with patients day in, day out, over the long haul. I enjoy the deep relationships that I develop with my patients as we continue to work together on their often lifelong health issues. Ultimately, in my experience, the goal of the physician comes back to putting the individual patient first this time and every time."

Harry Chaiken, MD, FACP

Harry Chaikin, MD, FACP, is a senior attending physician in the Department of Medicine, Section of Gerontology, at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center. A board-certified specialist in internal medicine and geriatric medicine, Dr. Chaikin has a specific interest in the treatment of chronic disease conditions such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, lipid disorders, and chronic obstruction pulmonary disease (COPD).

He is proudly ranked by his peers and patients among the region's "Top Doctors" in Philadelphia Magazine, New Jersey Monthly magazine, and U.S. News & World Report. He also is the recipient of numerous local honors for community service and volunteerism.

Dr. Chaikin earned a medical degree from Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, PA, where he was named to the Hare Honor Medical Society, and completed his residency in internal medicine at Wilmington Medical Center, Wilmington, DE. He is a member of the Medical Society of New Jersey and a fellow of the American College of Physicians.

Recognized as a Top Doc in 2014 by Philadelphia Magazine. This list recognizes physicians in the Philadelphia area who were chosen as the best by their peers.

James Atkinson, MD, FACP

"My goal is to listen to each patient, allowing them to tell their own story and how their living situation affects their health and how their health condition affects their lives. I like being the quarterback handing off to specialists, hospitalists, and nurse practitioners but calmly leading the team to win the game."

James Atkinson, MD

James Q. Atkinson III, MD, FACP, earned a medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, New Jersey Medical School, and completed a residency in internal medicine at Cooper Hospital, where he served as chief medical resident.

Board-certified in internal medicine and geriatrics, Dr. Atkinson followed his ancestors, James Q. Atkinson I and II, into primary care in 1982. He was honored to serve as the Burlington County Medical Society president and as Medical Society of New Jersey delegate, where he helped initiate laws protecting patients and doctors from HMOs and protecting children on bikes with helmets.

Dr. Atkinson has maintained his AMA certification of continuing medical education from 1982 with "commendation" (extra credit) in 2012. He was honored by his peers as "Top Doc" in South Jersey three times in the last 10 years, and he was elected a fellow in the American College of Physicians in 2007.

In his free time, Dr. Atkinson enjoys boating and taught the Basic Boating Course for the United States Power Squadrons.
