Patient Comments (8)

Dr. Akright takes the time necessary to explain tests and procedures and makes sure that you (the patient) fully understand everything. She is so very friendly and reassuring.

I don't understand why this doctor is listed as "accepting new patients" on the Humana website. I hand delivered my medical records and then faxed in the new patient packet to her office in January 2017. To date, no appointment and no contact from her office. Now they have lost the records i provided and paid for. Delma (ofc. manager), kept me on hold for 11 minutes to deliver this news. It's been 60 days and no appointment. Frightening to think what type of medical treatment they provide.

The wait times in the office are usually not long, she is caring and concerned, and the office is well-run. I HAVE recommended her to friends!
in New Braunfels, TX |
She is always truly concerned with my health and issues that I may have. She LISTENS and just does not hear what her patients have to say. I have sent at least three patients to her because of her compassion for the patient.
in SAN ANTONIO |
I have never been to a doctor before that has listened and paid attention to everything you are saying. I tell Dr. Akright she changed my life, and not by giving me more medication, but by having me quit taking some supplements and vitamins that I do not need. She also let me know that I have Hashimoto disease for the last 22 years and she is the first one to diagnose me. And her staff is absolutely awesome, I have recommended her and will continue to do so.
in Marion, TX |
Dr. Akright is the best endocrinologist/doctor I have seen in many years, she is very knowledgeable and always takes the time to talk about any problems you might be having. The whole staff is very positive and helpful, it's not often that a visit to the doctor's office is such a pleasant experience!
in San Antonio, Texas |
Dr. Akright was so caring and helpful. She took her time and got my thyroid back on track. I appreciate all of her time and help.
Wait is always over an hour. Once was nearly 2 hours Once she gets into the office for the exam, she doesn't check you out physically. She relies stricly on lab-work. I didn't care for my previous doctor but at least he felt my neck (thyroid) and my legs for circulation and swelling.
