28/11/12 4 5 1 5 Dr. Akande was not what he made his self out to be at my first visit. I was under the impression that he was going to be informative and encouraging. How I was wrong. He was not only rude my last four visits(I only saw him a total of 5 times). He not only asked my inapproiate questions, he also made suggestions that were unrelated to my treatment. I would not recommend him to anyone. I am so appalled that a Doctors beside manner would be so terrible that I have made a complaint against him with the BBB and the North Carolina Medical Board.  Respond

15/06/12 2 2 1 2 1st visit with this Dr. was very disapointing, he assumed things without any results in front of him, I feel he judged me about losing weight , when every1 is different, not every1 is supposed to be skinny , this man is kinda hurtful, not caring about peoples feelings, if he was concerned about weight loss , he should have chosen to work for Jenny Craig.Just a very rude person, but maybe when results are in from tests he will stop judging and give me the care I need !!!!

01/08/07 5 4 5 5 I found that Dr. Akande is very knowledgeable in his field. He listens and after examining provides the appropriate care. If pain medication is needed, he provides it, but if your going just to get the pain meds don't expect him to prescribe it! His initial and follow up care is exemplary. I would highly recommend Dr. Akande!
