I see Dr. Alkins for a serious pulmonary problem. I like him. He's always listens to my concerns and answers my questions. My only complaint is, he's the only Crouse Pulmonologist in Syracuse. It's very hard to get an appt. if you need to see him before your scheduled appointment. Since his practice went to Crouse Practice, he can't admit you or see you in the hospital. I don't like that idea at all and that rule goes for all Crouse Practice doctors. Who knows you better than your own doctor.

Had my first appointment with Dr. Alkins this morning. I found him very personable, caring, helpful and a good listener. Unlike my former pulmonologist he took my concerns about constant fatigue seriously. He made several suggestions including a possible change in my bp medication, plus is referring me for sleep study. I feel confident that he will continue to work with me until this problem is resolved. I will certainly recommend him to friends seeking a pulmonologist.

He is clueless when it comes to serious medical conditions. I was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's. 1/4-1/3 of Parkinson's patients have sleep disorders. I have REM Behavior Disorder, and had it years before the P diagnoses, and he never discussed it after my sleep study. Getting my sleep medicine from him was like pulling teeth because he didn't believe I had real issues. Doctors like him who don't listen to their patients make me very upset. I don't see him anymore.

Disappointed. Dr. Alkins was recommended from the Crouse Sleep Lab to see regarding insomnia I have been dealing with for some time. After three appointments over six months, another unneeded polysomnogram, he recommended a very minor tweak in my BiPAP machine setting. When I attempted to re-focus the discussion from apnea back to insomnia, the conversation was dismissed. This was followed by a "we'll see you again in a year to see how it's going". There may be areas he's good with but not sleep
