Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The Staff is the best. I called in the morning for an appointment, they asked if I could come in at 1:30 that afternoon. Dr. Akus listened to everything I said, he asked several questions and listened to my concerns. The staff explained the referral process and were friendly and concerned about my health and well being.

Absolutely Fabulous. I called to schedule an emergency appointment for mom who was very ill. The staff said to arrive as soon as possible. Dr. Akus and his staff spent 45 minutes with my mother. This was incredible. The office is very old school and takes the time for each patient needed. Which is greatly appreciated.

I do not have a bad thing to say about Dr. Akus but his staff is another story. His receptionist answering the phone is rude and cuts you off before you even get a chance to speak. I have had many interactions with their staff in the past working for other physicians office and it completely ruins a Doctors reputation when his staff behaves in this manner. I am sure he cares about his patients and their needs but his staff does not at all. I hope that they are fired and replaced by people who actually enjoy their jobs and make it a more pleasant experience for his patients.
