Patient Comments (6)

While I have only a few minor issues with Dr. Akins himself, I abhor his entire staff. They are rude and combative and THEY run his practice - you would think that they are the Dr. They have no compassion on the sick and they certainly display that openly.

Used to have confidence in this doctor but it seems that everything has gone downhill. His staff is rude and unprofessional. Many things have been missed or brushed off and I cannot remember ever being told it's time to check blood work or even any questions if I have had any other routine care...more

He fired me as a patient because I couldn't come to see him on time. But, HE is the reason I could barely move! He didn't know how to handle my thyroid and nearly killed me, had me on way too much. Thyroid levels are hard to understand and few docs get how to do it. It was a good thing though...more
