What My Patients Say

Excellent. - IM

I like him because he explains everything where I can understand. Plus he responds to my email when I have questions. Thank you for having him on staff. - JH

For a while I never had a permanent doctor but my last couple of visits have been with Dr. Akoto. I'm glad he's my primary care (physician) and he makes me feel so comfortable, answers all my questions and is very friendly and professional. - EB

Superb quality of care. Dr. Akoto is knowledgeable, caring, even when under time pressure, takes time to answer all my questions - provides on-the-spot changes for medications when physical changes warrant. - SL

Dr. Akoto is the best and most knowledgeable doctor whom my family and I have ever experienced and been treated by …. He really healed me. He is just great. - MH

Dr. Akoto is very understanding and a great doctor. He takes the time to explain everything and follows up as needed. He answers emails and will email you if he has information for you. He is an asset to Kaiser Permanente and I am blessed to have him as my primary care physician. - RB
