Dr Akatue was easy to talk to and really listened to me. She asked wonderful questions and allowed me to do the same. She gave me her full attention and I could feel that she really cared. It's refreshing to finda doctor that looks you in the eye and speaks to me, instead of my chart. I'd recommend her to anyone! She's my favorite and I've only seen her once!

Doctors like Dr. Akatue are extremely rare in this day and time. She is thorough, caring, and full of professional integrity. The care of my health went far beyond my visit as she took exceptional interest in my lab work, previousmedical records and my understanding of it all. The medical practice has an atmosphere of excellence with serenity.

The receptionist is beyond kind and helpful and attended to me right away. I was taken back within just a few minutes of signing in, and after vitals were taken, Dr. Akatue came in directly after. She was a very kindand gentle person and is very likable. She also listened to everything I had to say, which is really important to me. This is the first time that I've ever been comfortable in a Physicians office! I can't recommend her enough!
