Review of Dr. Akhter

- in Hinsdale, IL |

I have been going to Dr. Akhter for many years, and highly recommend her. She is a top-notch physician on several levels: First, her range of expertise is huge, from routine care to complex surgery. She is a seasoned physician, with decades of experience to draw upon, and she keeps up with new developments in the field. Second, Dr. Akhter is very personable and genuinely caring. She remembers her patients and their issues and has a calm, confident approach. She is one of the very best.

Review of Dr. Akhter

- in plano, IL |

I was with my previous Dr for over 35 years and was told they will no longer be taking my HMO insurance. Truly devastating. My insurance gave me Dr Akhter's name. I wish I would have found her 35 years ago. I didn't realize what I had been missing with my other Dr until my visit with Dr Akhter. Dr Akhter literally listened to all of my concerns and set my fears at ease. Did I mention my daughter was also lucky enough to be a patient of Dr Akhter. Im now thankful that my Dr refused my HMO.

Review of Dr. Akhter

- in Il |

It has taken me several years to find a obgyn/surgeon like Doctor Akhter. I finally found a doctor who listened to my concerns and helped me come up with the best solutions to improve my quality of life. Doctor Akhter takes her time and shows the upmost care and professionalism.

Review of Dr. Gaunt

-Illinois |

Amy is nice, but very limited in overall knowledge. She would probably be an excellent doc for someone without any complications. I switched Drs with my current pregnancy and feel much more supported and not as just another number. I wouldn't say she's bad, just not well versed in a lot of the complicated cases.

Review of Dr. Cheng

-Chicago, IL |

I have been going to Women's OB Gyn Associates in Downers Grove for 20 years, since I was 18. Dr. Cheng is friendly and takes the time to answer my questions. The office is a no frills type of place with simple paintings and basic furniture. If you're looking for a luxurious office, then this may not be the place for you. I enjoy coming here for the professional attention and their quality of care.

Review of Dr. Cheng

- in Downers Grove, IL |

Dr. Cheng is awesome. She is so kind and personable. I felt like she really listened to what my concerns were and did not try to rush me through the appointment. The day after my labs..I was called first thing the next morning to let me know the results. Also, the staff is so nice and attentive. I would recommend her to anyone and I actually have other family members now switching to go to her!! Oh also...she was very gentle and provided a pain/discomfort free exam.

Review of Dr. Akhter

- in Hinsdale, IL |

Dr. Akhter was an outstanding OBGYN in every way possible. I had a very complicated, high risk delivery, and she was by my side the whole time. She explained everything that was happening with compassion and patience. She treated my whole family with respect. I am so grateful that I have a healthy baby boy because of her expert care.

Review of Dr. Akhter


Dr. Akhter and her staff went above and beyond - whether it was working persistently with my insurance company to obtain all the necessary approvals or investing extra time to do the type of surgery that would provide the best/easiest recovery for me. I was in good hands through the whole process. Dr. Akhter and everyone else I encountered in the office are all compassionate and caring.

Review of Dr. Akhter

- in Lisle, IL |

I felt blessed to have such a great doctor taking care of me. Dr. Akhter did amazing job with my surgery. My recovery was outstanding; up and around the same day. I felt blessed to have such a great doctor taking care of me. She is truly remarkable doctor and professional that I respect and trust. She took time to listen and to make me feel valued and respected, treated as I would want to be treated. She never seemed to be in a hurry.
