Dr Akins is the best!!! Had he not listened to me and passed me off as too young to have severe heart disease, I would probably not be here today. When I first began having chest pain at the age of 46, he looked at my complete medical and family history and decided to take me to the cathlab without first making me do stress test . My “widow maker” artery was about 95% blocked. He stented it and I immediately felt better. I thank God for Dr Akins and his God Given ability to make the correct decisions for me and my health. Now I will be able to see my daughter graduate from college and go to medical school.

Dr. Akins treated my husband who suffered from a heart attack. During our hospital stay, 6 days, he was concerned with his overall health. Dr l. Akins made sure my husband and I were well informed and had the necessary medication he needed. This doctor is a great physician.

Dr Akins was not only concerned about my heart health, but my overall health. That is patient care. He asked to be informed of my treatments from my other doctors, so he can do what is best for me.

Dr. Akins treated my mother, father and family for many years. i became less impressed with him over the years because my mom would go in with legs the size of tree trunks and he would say, well, she's 88 years old. She ultimately had a 2nd heart attack a couple of weeks after meeting with him and getting a good bill of health. We changed Drs. as a result and she is doing better than ever; with no swollen legs and less than 1/2 the medication she was on with Akins.
