I had been looking for a doctor I could have confidence in and feel comfortable with for several years. My friends kept telling me to checkout Dr Akins and I hate I waited so long. When I leave his office I feel like help has really taken my problem seriously and has done his best to find what is causing my problem. The staff are kind and friendly.

Dr. Akin is a true professional who cares for his patients. At each appointment he takes the necessary time to educate you on your conditions and answer any questions you might have. It's obvious that he more than "Keeps up" with current medical literature as he is a wealth of information. Recently he referred me to another specialist. He made sure that I made the appointment and had a prompt follow up visit to explain my condition and his recommendations. Dr. Akin is an excellent Physician.
