Patient Comments (3)

Dr. Achinger is fine as a general practice physician. He is not very helpful re: kidney issues and does not appear "proactive" in saving a failing kidney, offers little about diet, etc. He has low eye contact and focuses more on paperwork than the patient in front of him. Nice guy, just doesn't...more

I have had Dr. S. Achinger as my primary care physician for several years and it's been perfect. He is friendly, helpful, understanding, listens; in short, everything you want in a doctor. I had my family moved over to seeing him because of my experience.
