Dangerous doctor

I would NOT recommend this doctor to treat ANY problem you have.This doctor is so incompetent that it borderlines on criminal.I was fortunate enough to realize this on my first appointment with him.I don't know if he was on drugs or drinking,but something was VERY,VERY WRONG with him.Stay away from him if you value your health.There are too many GOOD doctors out there to have to deal with this LOSER.

Excellent Physician

My little life was falling apart with my dad's health. Dad had been let go from the VA Hospital due to budget cuts (injuries not war related--Pearl Harbor veteran), & we were referred to Dr. Akins. That was 1986, & Dr. Akins was more than I could ever hope for. He took great care of my dad. Dad passed away in 1995, & I still see Dr. Akins as my physician. Dr. Akins will forever be in my life & in my heart for the unending care he took of my dad. My husband also sees Dr. Akins. Dr. Akins is a great physician. The staff is warm & knowledgeable. I'm so grateful.
