Tom Akland, DO, FAAP is excited to return to the region after almost 20 years of practicing medicine in the Midwest.  After graduating from Niskayuna High School, he attended Hope College in Holland, Michigan where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree with honors. Following graduation, he spent a year volunteering at a rural health center in Appalachia. Dr. Akland then received his medical degree from the Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his pediatric residency at Michigan State University in Lansing, Michigan.  He is board certified in pediatrics.


After residency, Dr. Akland worked in Kalamazoo, Michigan for five years before helping to found a pediatric group at a rural health center in Plainwell, Michigan where he has worked for the past decade.  Dr. Akland is a respected physician leader and clinical professor.  His work to increase healthcare access to impoverished children earned him a special recognition award from the American Academy of Pediatrics.


Dr. Akland loves making trusted connections with children and their families as they take their journey from infancy through adolescence.  When he is not doctoring, he enjoys spending time with his wife and their two daughters, helping out on the family farm, running, and puttering around the yard.
