I was extremely happy with my visit with Dr. Akin. I appreciated her patience in explaining my situation to me. I appreciated her knowledge of her business and her compassion and explaining to me everything I need to know regarding my knees. I appreciated her gentleness in treating my knees and her knowledge in helping me in a decision for future treatment of my knees. I appreciated her taking the time to explain everything to me as well as listen to all my questions and answering me in a timely and fashionable manner, putting me at complete ease with my visit with her. Thank you for Dr. Akin!

Ashley carefully and clearly explained the results of the x-rays. She then manipulated rather vigorously the upper and lower right leg (the right knee is the one injured) to better determine the cause of the pain. There was no pail at all. From this she felt very confident there was no ligament tissue damage. She then suggested an injection of a pain killer and a wait and see approach, which I happily agreed to. Much better after even 2 days.

My knee was causing severe pain. X-rays were taken but I never received the results of what they showed. But evidently, Ashley did. I was given a cortisone shot, which was a LOT less painful than I thought it would be. She also prescribed an anti inflammatory medication. Both treatments have worked wonderfully. She was the answer to my prayers for pain relief.

Dr. Akin (Ashley) is a skilled, highly intelligent and knowledgeable orthopedic specialist. Dr. Akin is very articulate and explanatory, And just as importantly Dr. Akin is very real, compassionate, caring, and personable. It's obvious with every interaction that she cares about what's best for me, and cares about what I want, and will try to make those intersect whenever we can.
