Upper Marlboro, Maryland |
Dr. Akpan came recommended to me by my cousin who is also a physician, who had a near death experience but was diagnosed and treated by Dr Akpan. She is extremely knowledgeable and a patient listener. She is good with adults, seniors and children. She cares and puts her expertise to work helping the community. I have highly recommend her and will continue to do so.

Dr. Akpan is a great doctor. Dr. Ayo is amazing! The man at the front desk, however, is awful. I actually asked him why he never smiled or behaved in a friendly manner. He responded, "I'm not here to be nice. I'm here to do a job and take care of patients." I politely informed him that being friendly and answering questions politely is a part of patient care. He just shrugged and told me "that's one person' opinion." It's unfortunate. He's why my ratings only go so high.

Dr. Akpan is a loving caring physician. However, I feel she has too many patients and can't provide all of us with the service we require. She is very delightful and cares about you deeply, but tend to forget once your presence is no longer there. I front desk staff should be replaced, it appears to me they only give special treatment to their own native people. Some days they are nice and some days they can be short and rude. You have to wait for 2 to 4 hours to be seen.
