I had a great experience with Dr Aks and staff today during my epidural procedure! Professional, no nonsense direct and to the point!!! During procedure very informative and his nursing staff is the best! St. Luke's South is the best organization with the best doctors, nurses and professional admin staff!

Negative Comments

Dr. Aks treated me with epidurals when my issue was actually muscular. The doctor then recommended I go to a neurosurgeon even though nothing showed on my MRI indicating it would be surgical. This doctor basically wanted to pump me full of pain meds without actually getting to know me or what my issue was.

General Comments

Don't go here unless you want impersonal treatment and a general lack of attention shown toward you.

"The front desk folks are pretty busy talking among themselves, but the true medical staff are outstanding."
Fair and Accurate Diagnosis
"Pretty much one size fits all here, but since I needed the back epidurals, it was my size. He did not even address my neck/shoulder issue so I had to make a separate appt."
Spends Time with Patients
"He moves fast and has a terrible bedside manner, but the pain in my lower back is gone for about a year after the injections."
Appropriate Follow-up
"None!"
