My wife has been a patient of Dr Esen Akpek for ten years and she literally saved my wife's eyesight as my wife has Sjogrens syndrome, she recently was operated by her and she did a marvellous job We could never find a better doctor, she is very pleasant, friendly and correct she will explain everything in detail to her patient. I have been married to my wife for 50 years and now i'll have the opportunity to see my wife face to face for the next 25 years, as I am a European citizen and now retired we are moving back to Europe but will visit Wilmer eye clinic every year to check with Dr Akpek my wife's eyesight. I owe Dr Akpek my gratitude for life. Any negative remarks about the quality of Dr Akpek can only be written by a negative person. May God bless her and her family.

Worse doctor, ever: Rude to patient and staff; uncontrolled anger is clear; e.g. does not acknowledge pt in room; does not greet; dismissively cuts you off when you try to explain any discomfort or even why you are there. Grabs your head to place for examination with force and anger (be quiet! she screams). Tilts your head for drops roughly and without telling you what she is putting on or doing. How can Hopkins accept these manners? And she is no genius; she missed tests and diagnosis was off.

Dr. Akpek is a superb physician and was the only surgeon experienced and capable enough to restore my mother's vision. She is bright, decisive and demands the best from all of her associates at Hopkins. She and her team are at the TOP of their game.

Dr. Akpek helped a patient I worked with from Saudi Arabia. She is one of the most caring and compassionate physicians I have ever worked with. She was able to restore vision in one of this patients eyes after years of being told there was no hope. Trust in her and she will do everything humanly possible.

You will be seen by a technician, an Ophthalmology Fellow and Dr. Akpek. Akpek is outstanding whether in diagnosis, research or teaching. She is thorough and you can trust her to tell you everything you need to know to get a good outcome. I've been with her about 10 years. She is by far the best eye doctor, and I've seen plenty of them.

She is a very nice person and seems to care, but she is not clear about issues and she missed a very significant eye problem that I had. I hate to say it, but I do not recommend her for eye health.

Dr Akpek is very decisive. If you need a hug and a long list of options for your situation you are in the wrong place. I don't want a doctor who can't make a decision. I want a recommendation for my situation that offers the best outcome and that is what she offers.
