He is a winderful and caring man and a gentle amazing doctor. I have seen more doctors then i can count and few have any a decent bedside manner never mind a genuine caring for his patients. The disease IC is very painful and beyond difficult to live with and the treatments are not pleasant yet he approached me with gentleness and a real sense of caring for not only my disease but how i felt as a person and gave me a true sense that he would do his utmost to help me. While i have not interacted much with his staff, cortney is the person i talk to the mosr she is extremely nice,helpful and caring. Their jobs are challenging since IC is so very painful we tend to be a difficult type of patient since the pain takes over our lives we can at times be harsh i find it amazing to find such a good doctor that to ask for a nice staff seems like alot to ask for. He has dedicated to helping people like me deal with a disease that some doctors dont even recgonize as a true condition at all. If you have IC or any female unexplained pain go see him he will help you.

I recommend Dr. Akl for a few reasons: 1. He is highly regarded by my other doctors, they have commented on his schooling and specialities and referred him. 2. He has always been very imformative on the procedure(s), explaining in way that is easily understood and repeated if necessary. 3. He and his office staff has always been very courteous, kind and accommodating. My bladder problems which other doctors could not solve was soon remedy by Dr. Akl.

As a patient of Dr. Akl I highly recommend him. He performed a rectocele and cystocele on me that was a success. Prior to this surgery another urologist performed a lift that did not work. Also my prior Dr. could not seem to find an infection that I had been carrying around since his surgery. Dr. Akl did find it, put me on medication and it cleared up. I can only say good things about Dr. Akl. he is a very friendly, efficient and caring Dr. that I would recommend to anyone. JoAnn
