Scott Akers, M.D., to assist with neurological evaluations 

 AkersTo better serve the needs of neurological patients at King’s Daughters Medical Center, physical medicine and rehabilitation physician Scott Akers, M.D., will assist neurosurgeon Clark Bernard, M.D., every Wednesday with patient evaluations.

“Through these evaluations, it can be determined whether a patient is in need of neurosurgery or therapy. If surgery provides the best patient outcome, he or she will receive an appointment with Dr. Bernard. If rehabilitation is the answer, I can begin designing a treatment plan for that patient,” said Dr. Akers.

Dr. Akers is trained to treat neurological rehabilitation conditions including stroke, brain injury and spinal cord injury. 

“My involvement with Dr. Bernard allows more patients to be seen and thus leads to more patients being treated. Whether the decision is surgery or rehab, our goal is to help these patients regain functional ability and to enhance their quality of life,” added Dr. Akers.

Dr. Akers completed medical school (1998) and an internship (1998) at the West Virginia University School of Medicine, Morgantown. He continued his medical education by finishing a residency (2002) at the University of Kentucky, Chandler Medical Center, Lexington.  

Drs. Bernard and Akers can be reached at 613 23rd St., Suite G20, Medical Plaza B, Ashland, or by calling (606) 329-1770.
