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.
