I love Dr. Akosa! Honestly, he and God saved my life. The first time I went to him, I was a mess. I didn't trust or want a male physician, and he was who they assigned me to. He went to bat for me right away, got the practice manager involved, totally understood where I was coming from. They offered me a female doctor but I was so impressed with Dr. Akosa, I refused! I love him. He has helped me so much to regain a sense of stability and security. I will recommend him highly to everyone!
