Patient Comments (4)
Anyone who gives Dr. Akin less than 5 stars is out of their mind and were probably just drug seekers that didn't get what they want when they saw him. He isn't the kind of doctor that will toss addicting pain medications at anyone who walks through his door and is at a reputable place like Johns Hopkins, and not like those other places that are basically drug dealers. He is kind with amazing bedside manner, and the most important thing is that he listens and doesn't rush you. Highly recommended.

Dr Akin is a wonderful doctor. I received injections for a herniated disc, he made me feel super comfortable during the procedure. I feel he had compassion on me with the pain I was going through and he actually cared about me not like most doctors where you are just another number. I dont feel comfortable around most doctors but I felt comfortable with him. For that I say thank you doctor Akin!

I just started with SmartPain in March 2016 after being with the same pain management doctor for years and adoring him, but I needed nerve blocks, which he didn't offer. I immediately felt very comfortable with him. He actually takes the time to get to know me, listens to my concerns and clearly wants to help. He has been extremely patient with me and answered my 73738 questions. Love that their schedule is super flexible and no wait! So relived to find Dr Akin and know that I am in good hands!
