Dr. Akin and his staff have been taking care of my family and me for about 15 years. We have experienced nothing but the highest level of care. It is very clear that Dr. Akin and his staff are genuinely concerned about our health and they have demonstrated on many occasions that they will do whatever is necessary to be available, even with very short notice. I highly recommend Dr. Rush Akin.

Dr. Akin does not give up until he figures out what your health problem. He is from the old school of doctors where they listen to their patients and take to heart what the patient says. Most of the younger doctors I have dealt with are really clueless in my opinion.
