Dr A was my doctor for 2 years.Never had a serious illness in that time, just got monthly preperscribed meds from other docs. But ended up with a serious ailment. Went to him. He looked at me across the room, and pronounced I did not have a skin ailment. No exam, and even tho I asked for a scraping for parasites, he refused. He gave me meds,later I found out he shorted me 2 full days of the meds, I did not get well. Problem got worse. I called to let him know and was told "not to come back"

Dr Akisanya is not my doctor, thx God. I meet him around my gma bedside while she was in the hospital. He asked us do she have a dnr, being that my gma was not in a coma r dumb a tear roll from her eye. He told us she is elderly and she has alot of things going on. Dr should never have a meeting around their patients bed. Then my mother n law got sick being that we are military we didn't know who her dr was, as we sat there until 10pm dr came n and yes it was him and I slid out of the recliner.

Very good Doctor & Staff, but waiting time is ridiculous. Have waited 4 hrs & left still not seeing Doctor and at the least 3 hrs to see main Doctor. They will set appointments up at 9 am knowing the Doctor will not be in until 10:30 or 11:00. If you have complaint about wait time or disagree with what's going on instead of talking about it WITH you will be ask to leave & not come back. But Nurse Practitioner is Fantastic
