What People Say About Dr. Michael Akom, MD
Reply
I've been a patient of Dr. Mike for almost 12 years. I had a kidney transplant 10 years ago. He truly knows his craft and genuinely cares about me and is determined to keep me healthy and comfortable for as long as possible. His personality is very easy to like and trust. He explains things in ways I can understand clearly without talking down. My wife and I both love him and his nurse Carole. I would recommend him in a heartbeat! -Tom Rogin
