He & you all are the best!!
The doctor spoke so fast that I could only rremember a smallportion of what he said. I assumed he would give me a sheet when I checked out stating everything said. unfortunately, I got nothing.
Felt he was a little disengaged. Good testing - Maybe we just didn't jive personality wise. Seemed to give patented answers.
he explained things right to the tee and that is what I wanted to hear. NO beating around the bush.
Great doctor maybe needs a little better "bedside manner."
Could not have been better!
I was confident in the provider's care for me.
Dr. Akst is the absolute best. A life saver in my opinion. He takes time to answer and explain all of my medical questions and I certainly have an inordinate amount off questions.He takes the time needed to calm me and gives me the confidence to move forward and I truly feel blessed to have him on my side.He is an amazing Doctor and I do recommend his practice to all.
Doctor was very good and explained my options and follow up needed
Both the dr. and the nurse were very nice.
Still haven't received information about my procedure [...] and report was not available [...] almost 3 weeks after procedure, to provide to another physician I had an appointment with. Would be helpful to have a quicker turnaround.
Dr. Akst and [...] provide amazing care, as does the rest of the staff every time I visit. My concerns are heard and I am treated with respect. I recommend this clinic to everyone!
Always pleasant to speak with my provider. I feel at ease when I leave his office. ALWAYS.
