Pekin, IL |
Dr Akeson has treated my son who has severe osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bone disorder) since he was born. He needed rodding surgery that Chicago Shriners would not do. I took my son across the country to the top clinic for osteogenesis imperfecta and the top surgeon in the U.S. was very impressed with the xrays showing the work Dr Akeson had done. He told me that my son was a very difficult case and that the doctor that did these surgeries (Dr Akeson) did a beautiful job. He's the best!

We took my son to see Dr. Akeson for three years for his scoliosis. Each time we were told they would brace or cast him "next time", only to have the next appointment come and no action taken. After three years we asked for a second opinion and were sent to Shriner's in Chicago. The very first visit it was determined that he needed to be put in a brace. We lost out on three years of spine correction! While Dr. Akeson is a very kind person, kind isn't enough when it comes to my child's care.

Dr. Akeson has treated my son's clubbed foot since he was two days old (he's now 3) -- and met with us before he was born to explain the treatment plan, answer questions, etc. He most recently fit my son into his busy surgery schedule to correct a broken arm. He's been at each follow-up visit, oversees X-rays and explains everything to us in detail. We are grateful to him for the care he has shown our son and family. His staff is also courteous and informative.
At the appointments he was very disinterested and a few appointments his physicians assistant came without him. One was my first checkup after my surgery
