Specialties

Dr. Barbara Y Akoto has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Not recommended.

Staff is rude and unprofessional. Wait times are atrocious. When the Dr finally does show up for your scheduled appointment, she has a bad attitude, like she is daring you to say something about how long you had to wait. Today was the last straw. I needed a refill on a medication and my pharmacy contacted her office yesterday early morning. This is how they have refilled my medications in the past. When I called Dr Akoto's office to inquire about the medication, I was told in an insulting manner that the pharmacy never contacts them for refills, even though the pharmacy has done this at her office in the past. Then I was told I needed to make an appointment before I could get a refill. Because this medication is a benzodiazepine, I could see the reasoning behind this. I made the appointment for the following Monday (this is Friday today) and requested enough medication to make it through the weekend until I could see the Dr. on Monday. She scoffed at me and said the Dr. doesn't do that. I asked her to ask the Dr if it was okay to stop this medication "cold turkey" like that. She acted like I was bothering her, told me she would ask the nurse, and then hung up.Never called back. Now I am facing the weekend without my medication. I am an RN, and I know that you do not just stop benzo's like that, it is dangerous to do. I have 2-12 hour shifts coming up, and I really am hoping I don't experience withdrawal symptoms because I have been on this medication for 3 years.

Won't go back

Rude and condescending. Has a sign-up saying no services without proper attair -- which makes me wonder about her commitment to the ill. She didn't listen well. was argumentative. And did not do a complete history, even though it was our first time seeing her.
