Leawood, KS |
Dr. Aks helped my girlfriend through a difficult pain issue. He was on time, professional, considerate and caring of her needs. I would highly recommend him to anyone with any pain issue.
Overland Park, KS |
I've seen Dr. Aks several times in the last couple of years and he always is caring and concerned, but most important, he always helps relieve my pain. He comes up with a plan and explains everything to me so I know what's going on. He's the best and I highly recommend him!
Overland Park, KS |
Dr Aks is fantastic. He listened well regarding my concerns and implemented a treatment plan which is working very well. I believe he truly cares about me and is very expert in his field. I recommend him highly!
Topeka, KS |
I drove an hour to see him for an office consult that lasted about 5 minutes. He was rude, he kept interrupting me, and would not listen to me on why I was referred to him. I was in tears by the time I got back to my car after the appointment. He was just so mean. I will not go back, and will never refer anyone to him.
Lees Summit, MO |
I was in for my first visit with this Doctor. First thing he said to me when he walked in was "What are you doing on my schedule"? It never got better. I decided I would be better off finding a different doctor.
Kansas City, MO |
I don't recommend Dr. Aks or the KC Pain Clinic. I went to see them in great pain and all that Dr. Aks did was tell me I needed to see other physicians. He did absolutely nothing to treat my pain. Oh yeah, he also billed my insurance $195 -to which I owe a portion. Save yourself time and trouble and go somewhere else.
