I am probably one of Dr. Akram's earliest patients in Reston. Dr. Akram is EXELLENT, I would recommend him to everyone. He listens well, accomplishes much in a short timeframe and doesn't waste your time, he gets right to the point, diagnoses accurately, and was able to quickly help me whereas others had failed over many, many years. Dr. Akram seems to have the latest and most current education to use in helping you. I greatly appreciate his help, I am at a completely different place now than I was a year ago, or five, ten years ago for that matter.

Did not address concerns. Very short - does not get to the true issue, doesn't listen to concerns about medications. Charges a RIDICULOUS amount of money for every little thing. 15 min appointments are $175. Any medical letters are cut and pasted from other patients with little true relevant information about patient and cost a fortune. Find someone else.

Dr.Akram has been my doctor for over 7 years. He is kind,compassionate,and he really cares about his patients. He is extremely knowledgeable about medications and takes the time to answer any and all questions or concerns. He REALLY listens to what I say,and I trust him completely. He has treated my son who went through a serious depression and has also worked with my mother who is having great difficulty with her memory since her 77th birthday. He is simply the best and I highly recommend him.

I have seen Dr. Akram on-and-off for years now, and he has never disappointed me in his ability to listen, correctly diagnose, and properly prescribe. He is very easy to talk to and you can tell he truly cares about/remembers the details of his patients. Recently he saw me the next day after I called him in need of his services without hesitation, something I really appreciated. And immediately my outlook and quality of everyday life began improving. Highly recommended.

I've been seeing Dr. Akram since 2011. He always has a way of explaining things to make me feel better about my mental health issues. Even though I see him every three months, he is all the therapy I need.

Dr. Akram is wonderful! He is an excellent listener and throughly explains his diagnosis and advice. He was the first psychiatrist I have seen, so I was very nervous, but Dr. Akram made my visit very pleasant. He is easy to talk to, and I felt completely comfortable confiding in him.

Dr. Akram is an excellent physician, and counselor. His knowledge of Psychiatry is above reproach; subsequently, his questions are perceptive, detailed enough to extract the information he needs to make accurate assessments of mental health. He is also very attuned to body language, inflection of voice and attitude. He never prescribes more medication (if any) medication then needed, and always wants to be an active participant in his patients mental health team, and wants feedback from his pati

Dr. Akram has always treated me with both compassion and professional, medical acumen. He is well educated and adept in the treatment of anxiety and depression, and takes care to incorporate a patient's personal environment (family, work, life events) into his assessment and treatment. Dr. Akram has also exceeded expectations by going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure my continued care and well being. He is by far the best psychiatrist I have ever seen- I highly recommend him.
