For his compassionate and expert care, he has earned numerous accolades. According to Cincinnati Magazine and Cincy Magazine, Dr. Akbik has been voted the Top Doctor in Pain Management since 2007, an honor that is only awarded when thousands of local physicians recommend him as the doctor they would turn to and recommend to family and friends.
