I picked this doctor because she was close and the good reviews. I went on a Monday morning strictly to get a referral and to meet the doctor. Number one I NEVER met with the doctor. I did meet Juan who was nice and NP named Lisa, she was nice as well. However I NEVER saw Doctor Akhtar so no introduction as a first time patient. I told BOTH Juan and Lisa I was there strictly for a referral for an Allergy & Asthma specialist I am trying to see at SWAAA. I was told "it takes them up front a day

I signed up for A M Better Market place policy January of this year. It is new insurance in Texas. I did not know that there were no physicians in the network. But I continued to see my Doctor Dr. Akhtar. I just found out that they never got paid for the services from the new insurance company. A M Better finally promised to pay for the services. I am so thankful.

My husband just got discharged from rehab place. He is paralyzed waist down. I needed a service who will see him at home. So I called Dr. Akhtar's office. I am happy to find out they have practitioners treating older patients at home. I am so relieved. I will not have to drag my husband to doctor's office.

Dr. Akhtar has this special way of dealing with older people. Every time I bring my parents she spends at least 30 to 40 minutes examining them, where as their previous doctor would not even spend 5 minutes.

My father is 89. He is always failing to measure blood pressure and sugar. Now Dr. Akhtar fitted him with a bracelet. It takes blood pressure every hour and send to doctors office. What wonderful device. Thanks to Dr. Akhtar

I love my doctor. Her office is so nice and clean. I hate doctor's offices in shopping strip next to tobacco shop or tinted massage parlors.

About Me

As a geriatrician, I believe in following a holistic approach to address physical, psychological, and social problems surrounding the patient and family. I consider the patient and the patient's family to be key members of the health care team, and I focus on and prioritize optimizing the quality of life and functional ability for my patients rather than seeking a definite cure.
