Dr Akin is the first doctor I have ever been to who gets you in fast and spends time with you, answering all of your questions. I wish I had found him 40 years ago!
in Lynn Haven, FL |
Dr. Akin and his staff are very caring and helpful. I recently had a health problem, they worked me in their schedule and I needed a referral to another specialty doctor, so they made me an appointment with that doctor the same day. I call that quick, efficient service. My husband and I have trusted them with our health care for over thirty years.

I have been a patient of Doctor Akin for many years and I would recommend him to my family and friends without hesitation. He and his Staff are always more than willing to help with whatever health needs I have. Doctor Akin has always taken time to explain my test results and give me medical advise using common sense responses to my questions. His Staff is second to none and always friendly and efficient.

Dr Akin truly cares about his patients. I never feel like I am being rushed out the door. If he does not know what is wrong, he sends you to an expert in that field of medicine.

I moved here from tennessee and wanted dr atkin for a dr. Me and my wife applied but was turned down. They said it was because of too many patients but I think it was because I am over weight. I am sad because of a office manager that don't like my looks

Dr.Akin cares about me as a patient and gives the type quality of care of would hope to receive anywhere I go. He hasn't changed how he practices medicine even though technology has forced some changes. It is about me and my care
