This so called Dr has horrible manners. He was very rude. I have never in my life been treated so badly. I do not recommend him. However..his nurse is very sweet and kind.

He is fantastic physician. He is up front and confident. I want my doctor to be confident in his decisions and recommendations. I had surgery at the beginning of the year and think it was one of the best decisions I've made ! I would recommend him to anyone. If there is ever a wait time, no worries, cause I got his full attention when he is in the room, so I know he's late due to being a doctor and caring for others. His staff is attentive and a pleasure to work with. I actually think after all these years I found a really good Ob/Gyn and am happy about my care. A big thank you Dr. Akin and his staff !!!!

He has great bedside manner and cares very much, also is straight to the point! Although I am young, he did not tell me not to have a baby or that I need to wait. Gave me my options and immediately was willing to start doing some of them. Overall I am really pleased.

by LKGibson at Citysearch on Jul 30th, 2010 on citysearch.com

Dr. Akin and his nurse, Judy, are the best! I cannot agree more w the other positive reviews on this site. I first started seeing Dr. Akin when I was pregnant with my first kid about a year ago. For starters, I really did not ever have to wait a very long time. I think there were maybe two times with all my visits where I was not seen within 15 minutes of my appointment times, so I do not think that wait time is a con.Secondly, Akin and Judy make you feel as though you are the ONLY patient they are seeing. One time, we had to wait a little longer than normal, and Judy offered us some food that they had leftover from lunch. Like we were family!Dr. Akin is truly an expert. He shared a lot of knowledge with us... like he could tell which side I ovulated from and always gave extremely detailed explanations for why he does things the way he does them, etc. He is very thorough. And for a knowledge junkie like me, that was extremely important and fun!If you are pregnant, you may get to have more sonograms than you might w other practices because they have a machine right there in the office. Exciting Yes!Although I know they are very busy, never have I felt like they were trying to hurry up my appointments at all!And I have to add that the whole staff is excellent - Cherie and his Nurse Practioner are also very attentive, encouraging and thorough in their care.Before Akin, I had seen 2 different OBGYNs and they were awkward and boring at best. I`ll never go back!I never thought I`d say this, but... I can`t wait to get pregnant again!

I have been seeing Dr. Akin for about 6 years for routine gyn issues. My husband and I battled with infertility and thought I should see a "fertility specialist ". After many failed visits with other docs, I went back to Dr. Akin and he found out what my issue was and now i`m expecting a healthy baby boy in the next few weeks. He`s so compassionate, calm, and I really enjoy going to the visits because of him and his awesome nurse Judy! I trust him totally! My husband and I are so thankful that we have him to deliver our baby. I have recommended him to all my friends and family.

I was told by several doctors that I could not have children without IVF. Dr. Akin was honest and told me that I only had a 20% chance that the tubal repair surgery would work. Dr. Akin was able to repair my fallopian tube. I now have a beautiful litt

Some folks post irrelevant reviews. They just want to promote the doctor. The one from cmatetich is almost identical to the one from ysanford. It is just rewritten. This place is for honest reviews, not for advertisement. Davebuoy is screaming to use the
