My office visit at General Hospital
Self-verified patient of Dr. Richmond Akatue - Posted on February 27th, 2009
My first visit to the General was quite stressful. Did not know the Doctor or use the hospital much in several years until my insurance changed and I was forced to go there. I was lucky to see this doctor. This man was very pleasant, respectful and easy to understand. spent a great deal of energy and time actually talking with me explaining in a language I could deal with. I understood what he was thinking, how he was planning to take care of my issues.Obviously a peoples person. I felt very comfortable with him and the nurses.
