I would never recommend Dr.Alingbola to anyone. He was always late and he dismissed many of my questions. I felt like I had no OB the whole time. I ended up seeing my foot doctor towards the end because my appointments with him seemed useless. Terrible bedside manner and made you feel stupid for asking anything! He ended up being the doctor that delivered my baby. I thought this would be a positive thing - even though I wasn't thrilled with his service I felt comfort seeing a familiar face! Boy was I wrong! He was a nightmare through the entire labour and delivery. Missed the fact that my cord was wrapped around my son'a neck until it was time to push so the vacuum type thing had to be used on his head and I had to get him out fast! 23 minutes of pushing and he was out. The whole twenty-three minutes Dr.Akingbola was awful. He even rolled his eyes at me when I said I was seeing stars and felt faint. I kept pushing even though I felt this way and he just rolled his eyes. My son was born happy and healthy. It was the next part that was horrifying! I needed A LOT of stitches ! He started them and told me he would finish when he gets back from doing a c-section. I waited almost two hours for him with my legs up just waiting. The nurses were getting conceded since my placenta was still in there. One nurse left and came back with him because he forgot he had to come back to finish my stitches ! He asked me to push out my placenta and I had to energy and couldn't so he used his huge hands to just pull it out! So painful and then he finished my stitches. It wasn't until two days later after having a nursing student check my stitches that a long-time nurse realized my hands, legs, and feet had puffed up and my body was rejecting the stitches! She checked the stitches and a look of horror appeared on her face. She told me she cannot touch me and needs to get a doctor immediately. She went and got another nurse (30 years of being a nurse) first who held my hand through the rest of this nightmare. The amazing Dr.Jana came in and was shocked -she just kept apologizing for Dr.Akingbola and kept asking me if it was a mess student that did these stitches. When he left and came back to finish he started in the wrong spot so there was a large gap that was missed and the cheese string affect occurred with my skin and I tore all the way up to my rectum. She had to fix it right then a a there and gave me laughing gas, I remember screaming into mask ask she cut off all the exsess skin and have me about 100 more stitches. No freezing or anything was possible. Just the laughing has and the most amazing nurses ever. It took me almost a year to recover and the stitches were in such awful spots that I could barely move without some taring. It was a nightmare. Dr.Akingbola saw me a few hours after this all happened and he knew I had been restitched but didn't know why and just assumed I was moving around to much and just looked at me and said don't do that or that's bound to happen. The nurse cut him off and told him to go talk to Dr.Jana immediately and he did and I never saw him again. This will be two years ago in March and I am terrified to get pregnant again because of all of this. I understand doctors make mistakes but this was just unreal. I would never recommend him to anyone.

After struggling with heavy bleeding,constant cramping and ongoing pain ,I was referred to Dr. Akingbola. Thank you. Because of you and the suggestion of having an ablation and D & C, I am back to my old self. You listened and you did what was best for me. I would recommend him to anybody. I always felt comfortable from the time I entered the office and dealt with Cathy till the time I left.

I was referred to Dr. Akingbola because I had a large fibroid in my uterus. His first suggestion, after I'd had a biopsy that came back clear, was to have a hysterectomy as well as remove my ovaries. I asked him why he would take my ovaries and he said "so you'll never have to worry about getting ovarian cancer". I told him I had neither a history of breast cancer nor ovarian cancer on my maternal side. He said it would just be easier. For who?? Definitely not for me because it would have thrown me into immediate menopause and I would need HRT. I argued with him that I was partial to my lady parts and wanted to keep my ovaries if they were healthy. He talked down to me like I had no idea what I was saying. I asked my family doctor for a referral to a new OBGYN and I asked him what his stance was on removing my ovaries. He said if they are healthy and viable why would I take them out. I went with my new doctor and he gave me a TAH in April. He said my ovaries were beautiful and healthy and no need to remove them. I think Dr. Okingbola needs to understand that women enjoy feeling like women, and that he should listen with respect when a woman voices her concerns.

I have nothing but positive things to say about the care I have received from Dr. Akingbola. He took me on as a patient with my second pregnancy which ended up being identical twins. After my 18 week Ultrasound showed markers for Twin to twin transfusion, Dr.Akingbola was quick to refer me to the high risk prenatal program at Mount Sinai. My twins were very high risk. Because of his knowledge, experience and expertise...I delivered twin girls! I recently needed a cystocele repair as well as some reconstructive surgery and repairs after 2 pregancies. Dr. Akingbola did an excellent job...I am very happy with the recovery and outcome and highly recommend him.

I went to Dr.Akingbola after I had already seen 3 OBGYN's. Wasn't to happy with his bed side manner. I'd had a hysterectomy before and was having some bleeding still off and on, he fluffed it off as it'll go away. A cyst was found before I went to him and the 3rd ultra sound he said it had disappeared. Well a year later and another ultra sound by my family Dr showed it to be still there. When I went back this time, if I hadn't of said I was worried about a cancer scare, and honestly today who isn't scared about that, Dr.Akingbola wouldn't have done anything. Just would of fluffed me off again.

I have seen Dr. Akingbola for all 3 of my pregnancies and have referred him to multiple people! He is incredibly knowledgable and always willing to answer questions. He referred me to both a Pediatrician and a Pediatrician cardiologist during two of my pregnancies when there was concerns about my baby's health. He is a very caring doctor who made the effort to come and visit me after all my babies were born even though he was not the doctor who delivered (this is hospital policy and has nothing to do with doctor). We're pretty sure we are done having children but if I did have a fourth, I would return without hesitation!

Dr. Akingbola was amazing with me! He spent time answering my questions every appointment. I was induced when we was the doctor on call and I'm so glad it was him. I had to have an emergency c section but he kept me calm and checked on me the following day. I highly recommend him !

I was referred to Dr. Akingbola two years ago due to ongoing bleeding issue and irregular pap smear, he found the problem right away and recommended surgery. He performed the surgery at Lakeridge and saved me from potential cervical cancer. I am grateful to be recommended to this obgyn after so many years of suffering and seeing different doctors who couldn't figure out the problem, as a single woman i found him to be helpful, answered my questions, took time to explain things to me, showed me test results and explained them in an understandable way. I highly recommend him whether you are pregnant or not pregnant, he understands the female body.
