Dr Akpassa was my doctor at Good Shepherd Medical Center in Marshall however i am also an employee of there as well. Dr Akpassa is one of the best hospitalist we have. As one of his patients in the hospital, I believe i recieved the best care possible in a timely manner & he took the time to talk & explain to me everything that was going on, gave me several options, guidlines, and was also available for any questions or comments I had. I highly recommend him to anyone!
