Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Akin is not only a great cardiologist, but an excellent teacher. I appreciate very much his open and low-key manner. It’s clear he believes in educating the patient, then helping me (instead of telling me what to do) make the right decision.

I’ve been with Dr. Akin since well before Centerpoint was built. He’s been my only cardiologist and I would never consider another one unless he retires. Very smart man, humorous personality and I always enjoy visiting with him. And most important he’s kept my heart healthy!
