This was my first visit with this man and it will be my last. I have a long history with no thyroid gland and I really just wanted someone to listen to my symptoms, run the right bloodwork and find the right combinations of medicine to keep me symptom free. He never asked me how I'm feeling, questioned my use of natural thyroid medicine rather than the synthetic Synthroid, briefly glanced at my lab results and declared I was on too much medicine. Arrogant, poor bedside manner....

I have been diagnosed as diabetic since I was about 30 and I am now 76. I first heard of Dr. Akhrass from a diabetic friend I saw loosing weight. I lost from 292# down to 250# because of medications he put me on. Now I'm at 240#. The clinic he is in is run like an assembly line. Blood samples next. Then vitals and your seated in one of his 2 exam rooms. Soon he comes in. Very personable and smiling. Always explains what he is doing. I'm glad I'm his patient.

Dr Ahkrass is the kindest, most patient, and encouraging doctor I've ever known. He worked with me for years never giving up and never making me feel like I was just imagining my symptoms until he finally figured it out. Even the insurance company made me do more tests just to prove he was right-which he was- and now I'm so much happier and healthier and taking only one shot a day instead of numerous pills that just treated symptoms! If you want it done right, see Akhrass!!!!

Dr. Akhrass has a wonderful bedside manner. He offers sound medical advise without being pushy or ugly about it. He encourages me to do all I can do to take care of myself.

Please note Dr. Akhrass and his Diabetes team has been instrumental in lower my A1C . 11.9 to 6 in less than 90 days. His Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Joseph Tiscani took the lead with my monthly visit to assure my success. Keep the good work up guys I could not have done without you all.
