    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.

Fantastic Doctor

I have been going to Dr. Akins for about 11 years now and refuse to see anyone else. He takes the time and sit and talk with you and really listens to your issues and tries to help. If one medication doesn't work, he will try something else. Before giving you a new medication he will explain all side effects, etc.

Finally a doctor who listens

I drive 2 hours to see Dr. Akins. I have been a nurse for almost 20 years and he is the most caring and responsive physician that I have met. I trust him completely and know that my health is in good hands with him. He always has time to explain things and discuss options. He listens, speaks honestly and spends as much time as he needs to spend. He's the best doc I've met.
