Told me my daughter was depressed and needs a psychiatrist and maybe I have already been taking her to one. This was after he joked around with her for a few minutes. I laughed and after a few more comments I said we are done here and walked out. She was already diagnosed with exercise induced asthma a year ago. I took her to another dr and they did a breathing test in their office which showed she had breathing issues and had an asthma attack. Glad I found a new doctor!!!!!

When my son was 13 his class assignment was to write an essay about his hero. He chose Dr. Akhter, because he truly believed that Dr. Akhter saved his life. Dr. Akhter certainly made my son's life much better by getting severe asthma under control.
