I was diagnosed with post partum preclampsia and had to be on blood pressure medicine. I was referred to Dr. Akbar and so happy I was. He is fantastic. He has a wonderful personality, very patient, listens, and he actually wants to help you get off your meds if you're able too, like with my condition. I'm changing my lifestyle and it's working. I'm so happy with Dr Akbar, I will definitely recommend him.

my brother loved dr Akbar he has compation for his patients but the lady that runs his office is inhuman he would wonder when my brother wouldn't show up for his office visit after leaving hospital it would be because he owed a bill he was fighting ssi disability lived with my 81 yr old mom and he had no income and she refused him so he would be in hospital again and dr Akbar reassured him he didn't care what he owed he wanted to see him and we told him what she had done again my bro passed away

On 9/22/16 Went to ER and found out I was having a heart attack. Dr Akbar looked at my EKG and did an ultrasound of my heart, to see the damage. He was talking to me the whole time showed me what was wrong with my heart, and plus I had a blood clot. Then he took me back to put a stint in my main artery and was telling me what he was doing the whole time and would ask if I was alright. I really like that, a down to earth Dr who talks to you to were you understand him. I would differently recommen
