We were referred to Dr. Albakri because of my husband's memory loss issues. Dr Albakri read the MRI and said that my husband did not have Alzheimer's disease and that he had had strokes. Dr. Albakri prescribed medication and therapy to treat strokes. Dr. Albakri was wrong. His misdiagnosis, and the medications prescribed, prevented my husband from getting into an Alzheimer's clinical trial in a timely manner. He did not take responsibility for his mistake. His mistakes ruin lives.

Dr.Albakri Does not like to be Questioned. If you do not agree with what he says your time is shortened and he just wants to reschedule you for another time for another test.There is an average 45 min wait just to be brought back to exam rooms then another 30 min waiting on him.Last visit I left office very frustrated and he did not really seem to care.

Dr. Albakri was very personable and explained absolutely everything that was going on and what he thought it was necessary to do. I would definitely recommend him!

Less than 1 star. My mother is 75 years old, blind, unable to walk with vascular dementia. We made several appointments with the Dr. and only saw him once. Numerous times we were told we could only see him on certain days. When we made the appointment (a month at least ahead), he didn't even show up. Instead his PA would push pills at us. This Dr. doesn't care. He is terrible and his staff is worse. We wait at least an hour after our appointment time. I am furious with these people. Now she cann

Dr Albakri has a great bedside manner. He is one of the most thorough doctors I have seen. He keeps check on your condition to make sure you are not getting worse or if there is anything else that can be done to help eleviate your symptoms. He takes his time and explains everything. I have been with Dr Albakri for about 5 years and wouldn't think of changing to another neurologist. When my mother recently had a stroke I bring her from Polk City to see him.
