I saw Dr. Akbar when my regular family physician at the same practice was out of the country. She was awesome! She took time to answer all of my questions and explained her responses thoroughly. She is very knowledgeable. Not once did I feel rushed. She is pleasant to talk to and has a sense of humor. I wouldn't let inaccurate info from insurance company deter me from seeing Dr. Akbar. Clarification among physicians and insurance reps can be resolved. I would recommend her to anyone!

I will not return. Dr. Akbar told me she could not simply draw blood for a cholesterol level check; that my insurance requires a full physical, with colonoscopy, mammogram, etc. I received a response today from my insurance stating this is not true.
