Samir Azer, M.D. – Jul 22, 2021
Excellent, excellent, excellent – Dr. Akbari is one of the best doctors I’ve ever visited. She is thorough and knowledgeable and, best of all, was willing to experiment with anti-angina treatments until she got optimal result. Dr. Akbari is exactly as others have described her – empathetic, curious and an excellent listener. Witty, too. Any way to clone her for the good of society? Her assistant, Carla, is also stellar.

David R. – Jun 26, 2020
I have been one of her patients for a decade. She has a lively, inquisitive mind and is quick to solve problems other physicians cannot. One of my other doctors once told me that Dr. Albariño was “the smartest person” she knew. What more could you ever want?

Dr. Akbari is one of the best doctors I've ever seen. She takes the time to get to know you and listen to you and helps you really understand what's going on with your health. She has a great sense of humor, is approachable, knowledgable, and really cares. Her and her staff make you feel very comfortable, and her offices are super clean. I've always had positive experiences with Dr. Akbari and her office.
