Dr Akin and Staff

I had been diagnosed with POS prior to contacting Dr Akin's office and had been struggling for years to get pregnant. The staff at this clinic are compassionate, professional and honest. In life there are no guarantees. I got pregnant with twins on my 1st try with IVF but lost them at 23 weeks due to incompetent cervix. Tried again within 6 months and now have a beautiful baby girl. We have one more egg and are about to try again. I would recommend this office to anyone, changed my life completely!

Highly recommended

Dr. Akin is a very kind, thorough, and compassionate physician. Very intelligent and knowledgeable. He is the only board-certified reproductive endocrinologist in Lexington, KY. I have had 2 successful twin pregnancies thanks to him and his wonderful staff. Likewise, my sister-in-law in the mother of 2 children due to his excellence (after 5 years of infertility and several treatments by her general Ob-Gyn). If you are struggling with infertility and want to maximize your chances for success, I would recommend skip the other docs in central KY and go straight to him. I highly recommend in vitro fertilization with Dr. Akin if you can put it in your budget (it's expensive).

Dr. Akin and staff were incredibly kind to us. Really did love the office, however with multiple rounds of IVF none of our embryos ever took and unfortunately Dr. Akin was unable to give us a reason why. Went to another fertility clinic and within minutes our new doctor diagnosed me with polycystic ovary syndrome. Extremely common and obvious. Was very disappointed, a lot of money and heartbreak we went through when I could of been treated from the get go. Unfortunately we would not recommend this office. Luckily at the new fertility clinic we are expecting our first child!
