First office visit and this man was so aggressively rude I left in tears. Probably will look for another neurosurgeon.

Dr Akeyson is an amazing surgeon and with his experience he knows what to look for and the proper steps to treat spinal issues and injuries. He attempts nonsurgical options first before performing surgery
