What People Say About Dr. Timi Akins, MD
Reply
Dr Akins did not adequately answer our questions, gave us incorrect information (contradicted the dietitian and well-known research), refused to refer us to a renal RD (he stated "I can print whatever handouts you want, you do not need to see a dietitian", we had to call and insist), then when we asked for a second opinion (he had to release my husband to be seen by someone else in the practice), he called me (wife) and demanded to know why we "didn't trust him" and asked me to call the PCP office and have a note DELETED from the chart! He then fired my husband as a patient and the entire nephrology practice at COX refuses to see him now. We are currently working with the patient experience office, so I was hesitant to write a review, because I was hoping he or his office would resolve this with us. However, it has now been 3 months and we have yet to resolve this. We have never been treated like this by a physician before.
