I went to Dr. Akkary for a neck lift. He did an amazing job. My results are better than I ever dreamed possible. On top of doing excellent work, Dr. Akkary was a caring and concerned doctor. The surgery center is clean and in excellent condition and the prices are more than reasonable. I highly recommend Dr. Akkary and his surgery center.

Dr. Akkary and his staff are very knowledgeable and professional. I had a lot of questions about the various types of weight loss surgeries, and Dr. Akkary patiently and thoroughly explained each one and addressed all of my questions so I could make the best decision for me. He's the kind of doc who takes this time for all of his patients, and it is so reassuring! The office staff have also been very friendly, helpful, and responsive. Love the convenience of their newer location as well!

I absolutely love Dr. Akkary and his staff! Everyone is very kind, my questions are always answered and they are great to work with! When he did my surgery he was very pleasant and took the time to explain everything to my family pre and post surgery - they were also very pleased with him! I highly recommend Dr. Akkary to anyone that has been thinking about surgery - he will find what fits you and your lifestyle the best!

I have been seeing Dr. Akkary since 2014. The first day I was given his cell number...that has NEVER happened before at any other doctor's office. He is genuine and compassionate and really only wants to help you succeed. I have called him so many times and he has ALWAYS answered my questions. He has performed 2 surgeries on me and I wouldn't go anywhere else! I trust him and his staff completely. They will listen to all of your concerns and explain everything completely!
