Baldwinsville, NY |
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
