Patient Reviews (1)
in Winston-Salem, NC |
Dr. Akman is one of the nicest and caring physicians to his patients. He treated my mother for cancer until her death in January 2009. He truly cared about her health and at the age of 86, they became close friends. Had she not died of double pneumonia, I think she would still be with us as the cancer drug he had her own did wonders. I will always be grateful to him. Anyone who is under his care is fortunate (not for the cancer, but for the physician of course).
