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.
