29/07/09 4 5 5 5 Excellent Doctor. Non-judgemental about anything you tell her. Never stops being helpful. Will look into anything that is bothering you. Discounts nothing. Thorough. Obviously maintains currency on everything in her medical book. In comparing her to the rest of the province, it is worth not moving out of the area just to have her look after my health problems.  Respond

04/05/09 4 4 5 5 I am so happy I have her as my doctor. Dr. Akcakir is thorough, attentive and very knowledgeable. If there are follow-up tests or requirements, she personally calls to be sure you have the right information. Agree that waiting a little (usually 10-15min) to have such good care is not an issue.  Respond

01/05/09 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing with Dr. Akcakir for several years now. Is she always on time? No, but she has been far better than virtually any other medical practionner I have ever dealt with and she rates a 5 in my book. As to being helpful and knowledgable, she is excellent. I have lost count of how many times one friend has told me that she wished she had a doctor like Dr. Akcakir.  Respond

27/02/09 5 4 5 5 There are so many great things about this doctor. She is extremely interested in preventative medicine and very thorough in diagnostics and bench marking. Punctuality is really irrelevant when seeing her because you know she has just come from another appointment like yours, where you get a very involved diagnosis and treatment, and especially as she always fits me in if I have to have an emergency appointment. Well done Doctor!  Respond

31/01/08 5 4 5 5 Dr. Akcakir is an excellent family doctor and I would highly recommend her to anyone. All the previous comments about her politeness, attentiveness, and follow-up are accurate. I would also like to add that I have been referred to several specialists over the years, and am always told by these specialists how lucky I am that she is my doctor. She is also highly respected by her peers, and she is the first doctor I have had where without fail, the treating specialist actually makes these comments immediately upon seeing the name of the referring physician.  Respond

29/01/08 5 3 5 5 Dr. Akcakir has been my doctor for 5 years now. She is extremely attentive, thorough, compassionate, and LISTENS! This is why she may often be a few minutes late for your appointment, but it is never too long a wait. The wait is worth it. She is completely focused on your file at the time of your appointment. I suggest that you be prepared with your questions and let her know at the onset of the appointment what you plan to discuss, that way she can better time the appointment. She is by far the best doctor I have had.  Respond

Always apolgizes if late which is no wonder considering how busy she is. She is competent,knowlegeable, and does follow-up and if there is some doubt about a diagnosis. She will go to the ends of the earth to find out what is wrong. She is my niece's and her husbands Doctor also and they love her. I wouldn,t doctors change for the world  Respond

17/03/07 4 5 5 Sometimes Dr Akcakir runs a little late, but once you are being seen by her, she devotes her entire concentration to you.. listens.. (REALLY LISTENS!!) to what you have to say, and acts accordingly. She refers to specialists when necessary, and does terrific follow ups on new medications or courses of treatment. She looks after many members of our family, and truly practices family medicine. Besides that, she is gentle, considerate, and sensitive to special needs.  Respond
