Dr. Akhtar's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Akhtar "I am a Board Certified Physician in Family Medicine and Geriatric Medicine. I see patients age 18 and up. 60% of my patients are Geriatric patients. I am a primary care provider (PCP) for large number of patients. I usually have another physician and 3-5 nurse practitioners and PAs in my practice. I see patients in my out patients clinic, multiple hospitals, and nursing homes. Beside caring for my patients I am involved in public speaking for nurses and healthcare professionals to improve lives for seniors. I also attend senior fair and provide free vaccine and health screening for seniors. My goal is to keep my patients and families healthy, and keep the seniors out of hospitals and nursing homes. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Akhtar "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."

Dr. Akhtar Says:

Patient surveys are good. But, some time some fraudulent entities would put in false & negative remarks posing as real patient. These are mainly home health agencies. Most of these agencies bill Medicare for the care they did not provide. And they want physicians to verify their false claims. If physicians refuse to sign false orders and claims ..they get upset and write negative review about physicians posing as patient.
