Ratings for Dr. Eric D. Akin
This doctor is an arrogant sob. I fell and broke my back in five places he told me if I didn't smoke cigarettes that I would not be in pain. I gave him all my medical records and digital imagery and when he walked into the room he had no clue as to why I was there. People please think twice about dealing with this SOB.
After having carpal tunnel surgeory, I had worse pain, nerve damage, and pieces of qauze working out of my wound. Dr Akin was more concerned about his "record" than my pain. His only response was he could "go back in and explore and see what was going on". I am still undergoing treatment, by another physician, and will probably never be pain free, or regain full use of my hand.
DR. ERIC AKIN HAS RUINED THE REST OF MY LIFE. IF I WAS TO LOSE MY PRESENT JOB, I AM DONE. I WILL BE DISABLED. I HAVE TO SEE A DOCTOR MONTHLY NOW JUST TO BE ABLE TO WORK AGAIN. MY LOOKS ARE EVEN DISFIGURED. I POST THIS COMMENT FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD. DONT END UP IN MY SITUATION. FIND ANOTHER NEUROSURGEON. BY THE WAY, I AM YOUNG.
I had to have c-spine surgery twice within 8 weeks because he didn't do a new MRI and missed a ruptured disc the first time. I finally got relief but thought I never would at the time. I'm sure he is very knowledgeable but he is not a great communicator.
Dr. Akin is the most compassionate and effective neurosurgeon I have ever met. His operation cured my surgery, and I hardly have a scar!!!. He has helped 2 of my good friends as well with their spine problems. He is the best neurosurgeon in Arkansas.
Dr. Akin was wonderful, but maybe he was just too busy at the time to really give good care in my situation. His nurse was the one that I spoke with most of the time, and she was too harsh in my case. I needed further spinal shots and care and she made me feel like I was crazy. I have since been seeing another neurosurgeon in NLR, and I am finally getting better.
