He told me that my condition would require one surgery and I'd be healed for life. WRONG! Four surgeries later I'm needing a fifth surgery to REPAIR what he did wrong! He even admitted to doing it wrong and said he should have done this and that in the first surgery. So now I've been turned down for surgery by two major hospitals because they refuse to go in my back after Akin left it in such a mess. I'm 28 and having to deal with this for life now. I'm left with no control over my bladder and borderline paralyzed in my legs. Please don't waste your time with this man.

Claims after I have had many other diagnoses with many doctors stating issues L-4 and L-5 , Spinal Stenosis plus three disks that came out and went part way back in that I have a perfect spine and he wishes he had my spine. I have to question how he is in practice. I suffer in pain. Fine if he cannot treat, but I do have issues that have been clearly diagnosed. God will find me help just not with him.

Doesn't Care
Back in 2004, in Little Rock, AR, I was referred to Dr Akin because I had a herniated disc, at the L4-L5 level. I was experiencing a great deal of pain, with muscle spasms, which totally incapacitated me. 2 to 3 times a month, for a period of over a year. When Dr. Akin found out that I was an RN, who worked in the Emergency Department, he accused me of "trying to get disability". And did NOT help me. At All. That was 9 years ago. I still have terrible pain. I still have a herniated disc. I STILL AM WORKING AS AN RN IN THE E.D.!!!!! I did not then, nor do I now want to be on disability. I just wanted help. Which he was not interested in giving. If you go to him, BE AWARE!!!!!
