Wonderful doctor! Dr. Akan cured my hives, and prescribed the correct combination of medications to alleviate all of the itching almost immediately. She asks pertinent questions, and is a great listener. A very thorough physician. I am glad I found her.

Dr. Akan was wonderful! Friendly & warm, really listened to my concerns and so helpful with my lifelong allergies. I had never seen an allergist before, hate going to the doctors, but she got me on the right course of meds to help me breathe easier! Can't say enough good things about her.
