Mark was very kind and professional with me! I am new in Austin (coming from Paris) and I'm happy I found a doctor like him here; He knows how to listen to his patients, his team is super efficient, I really enjoy my first appointment with him, he is very reassuring as well. He did my annual check-up like a boss;) I will keep him as my main gynecologyst and I highly recommend him! Hannah

Dr. Akin was very knowledgeable factually about my concern. However, perhaps due to my apt being at 4:00 (close to closing time) I feel my visit was rushed. I was cut off several times by the nurse when trying to explain my concerns. Additionally, I addressed several areas of concerns directly to him that I wanted examined, and he only addressed two during the exam. He did not give me clear follow up instructions for after the visit. I do believe Dr. Akin could be a great doctor, however I believe the 4:00pm patient deserves the same patience and courtesy as the 9:00AM patient.

He was very attentive and kind. He takes the time to sit and talk to you before your exam. It was nice to see a doctor who cares enough to spend time with you and not just rush you through your exam.
