I had a mild case of bronchitis over the summer and got an antibiotic which cleared up the illness yet a few weeks later I noticed my tounge burning all the time so I went in to see doctor and he didnt know what it was and sent me home and told me to rinse with biotene mouth wash first dry mouth. The next day I called and he told me to go to the emergency room. I decided to go to my normal family doctor, 2 and a half hour drive, and it was just a yeast infection.

Makes eye to eye contact. Encourages questions. Gives outside referral if necessary. Does not make patient feel like they are being rushed.

Dr. Akhtar has been my primary care physician for the past 10 years. He is admirably kind, well rounded and empathetic. When I have appointments with him, every visit feels like I’m just visiting a friend. He is very personal and a great physician for individuals, or your entire family.
