Called for a new patient apt a month ago, which they gave me. I had my records sent there and all. Monday 7/3/17 they called me to confirm my apt. On Weds. 7/5/17 the office called to tell me that there was a few offices that closed and they would not be able to take me on as a new patient. The DAY before my apt that I had for a month. I believe it was an insurance issue, I have medicare and they didn't know I had a secondary. Worked for medical practices in my life. VERY disappointed!!! This leaves myself and my husband without a doctor. Wake up people, keep this behavior up and you won't have to worry about new patients. And by the way, looking for another Physician and the ones I called knew nothing about offices closing. Lying, very bad public relations.

I went to mr akus. As you are supposed to do when you have questions you are to write them down so you don't forget...I did the time of my appointment I stated that I had a couple of questions...he stated "you don't question me I will tell you what you are to do...with that attitude I looked at him and said "you are fired" and walked out... I would never recommend him to anyone for anything

If you are fortunate enough to have Dr. Akus you are very lucky. Dr. Akus is a hometown guy who knows you and cares for you with attention that is personal. You do not feel like a number on a check list. You feel like you are somebody and important.
Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
