What People Say About Dr. Akash Makkar, MD
Reply
Dr. Makkar has been absolutely amazing with my daughter and I honestly wouldn't want any other Cardiologist for her! Our very first appointment he knew she had been misdiagnosed according to symptoms, but he also ran the necessary tests to confirm it, which no other Cardiologist had done within the years prior! He is definitely very knowledgeable, gets right to the point and does everything he can to help the patient. Thank you Dr. Makkar and staff, I have the utmost respect for EVERYONE!
