Great Doctor!

I had Dr. Aaker at Lakeside hospital and he was one of the few doctors that actually seemed to care about how I was feeling and wanted to get me treated. Despite the ER that was overran with patients and he was the only doctor on duty, he has great bedside manner and diagnosed my condition quickly. I hope I don't have to go to the ER again, but if I do, I hope he is my doctor!

I went to ER for a simple bladder infection, and he couldn't diagnose it. $1000 later and no relief--went to an Urgent Care the next day that asked me why I waited so long to come in.
