 |  Beware Of This Doctor  |  show details
by Lost My FATHER on Jun 25th, 2013

I would highly suggest that you do not use this doctor, do not let your family go to this doctor, as I will not go in to detail other than my father passed away 8 days after being released from the hospital by this doctor who had done a "partial" vascular surgery because he did not feel that it was necessary to do the entire surgery all at the same time.

I took my mom who is 90 years old to Dr. Akers. She had severe pain in her right leg from above the knee into her hip and into her back. She could hardly walk and could only sit for short periods of the time. All Dr. Akers did in examining her was to feel her pulse in her ankle and neck. He said he would have to do 2 tests on her and it would be a month before he could do them. I tried to get him to prescribe pain medicine for her and he would not do it. I would definitely not recommend this doctor to anyone. Obviously, I cancelled the tests.
