in Coral Springs |
Dr. Akhtar was extremely thorough with her examination in a very friendly and professional manner. The office was crowded, but the wait time was not really bad. She is an excellent listener and her medical expertise is amazing. I would highly recommend Dr. Akhtar as your dermatologist!!

After waiting many months for an appointment, just got a call that it's been cancelled. Only available is 5 more additional months. Unacceptable and will be looking elsewhere for care.
Boca Raton, FL |
I waited 6 months to see her. She was running over 30 minutes behind that day and she and her assistant were rushed. Before the Doctor came in I told the assistant everything I've done and all the medications I took for my issue. She ended up not inputing it in the computer. When Dr. Acktar rushed in she was talking so fast and hurried. her plan was the same that I told her assistant that I've already tried. I told her I already did that. She said her RX was better. I refilled it , was the same

Amazing bedside manner, efficient in explaining treatment plans, very knowledgeable. Made me feel very comfortable and was considerate. Would recommend to friends and family. Can be hard to get an appointment, since she is booked so far in advance.
