5 star rating.

Dr.Derene Akins is an excellent doctor. My sister and I both have been seeing her for years. I will be heartbroken when she retires. She treats you with upmost respect and is very compassionate. She never makes you feel rushed. When she is in the room with you, her attention is a 100% on you. I wanted to do a 5 star rating, but my phone only showed 4. Best doctor I have ever had.
