Patient Comments (2)
Elk Grove, CA |
Dr Akin was the worst OB I have ever encountered! She is dismissive, pushy, and rude. I would not recommend her. Dr. Akin is not interested in having an intellectual conversation with her patients about their health concerns, because no patient could possibly be educated about their condition. She is very pushy with IUD's. I could not in good conscience, recommend this doctor.

Out of all the Ob/Gyns in Mercy (3000 Q Street), this doctor is the most informative and helpful one.
