Dr. Akinsola saw my daughter today for the first time. I have to say he has such a great disposition and manner about him. He is a great listener as well as communicator. He listened to my concerns with ease andthen calmly provided his feedback. I would even go as far as saying out of all the pediatricians my daughter has had, his attitude and bedside manner has been the most joyous. From the time I walked in the office until the time I walked out, all of him staff were truly welcoming and hospitable. I will definitely recommend him to others and I will most certainly be back! We have an appointment next week that I am very much looking forward to. Also, I was seen almost right away...Two thumbs up on that!

Dr. Adebayo at first sight was so pleasent. He made us feel welcomed and at home right away. My son was super scared the moment he walked in, crying and asking if he was going to get any shots. At theend of the visit he was high fiving Dr. Adebayo. My son had been in the hospital this past year for half a month due to health reasons so going to doctors is always hard. Dr. Adebayo addressed all of my concerns and made sure to follow up in regards to my sons hospitalization to make sure there was no residue. Coming from Miami, FL having the same pediatrician since my sons birth and having to let go and find a new trusting one was a hugh issue for me. I have 6 months in the city of Atlanta and this is the first doctor he sees and I am extremely satisfied with the decision I made.
