He always takes the time you need and I'm not rushed through like he doesn't have time for me. He always explains. I never have a problem getting in when I need an appointment and I'm never had long waits in the waiting room. I have found his staff friendly and helpful and they quickly refill meds, forms etc.

Staff is intolerable. They are rude and condescending and never go the extra mile for patients. They act as if you are bothering them if you ask questions.

Dr. Akins spends whatever time necessary to provide the best possible care. His staff however, can be rude and condescending. There's been several roll-overs of staff in recent years and it doesn't improve. Several support staff act as though it is their practice, not his.

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 (colonoscopy, mammogram, stress test, etc.).

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 because it allowed me to get to the doc I am seeing now, who is very good and has me on the right dosage. My hair is finally grown back in and I have energy to live.
