      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
