I took Rabbi Atkins' halacha course on brit milah last summer, in anticipation of my own son's birth. 

As a urologist, I had done many secular circumcisions but was very deficient in both the halachic

teachings as well as the ritual/flow of performing milah.  Rabbi Atkins was very patient and thorough

in his teaching and obviously has a great passion for both the subject and performance. 

I feel that his course was invaluable.  It made my son's milah a more deeply significant event

and has allowed me to provide a needed service here in my own community.  I would unreservedly

recommend Rabbi Atkins and his course for anyone interested in performing milah.
