Dr. Akey’s passions include developmental pediatrics and nutrition. He stresses the importance of a healthy diet to all of his patients and their parents, as they are often the ones with ultimate control over what their child eats.

He also stresses the importance of a healthy family environment, especially to parents with adolescents and teenagers. He believes that close, loving families who provide their children with a solid moral foundation give their children a better chance at succeeding later in life.

When Dr. Akey isn’t providing warm, knowledgeable care for children, he enjoys working out, being involved at his church, and spending time with his wife, children, and grandchildren.
