Patient Comments (1)

Altoona, PA |
Plenty of bad drs in Bradford,Pa. Dr Akhtar is not among them. My family have been very satisfied patients of his for years. He's patient, ethical, competent and has a good bedside matter. He will not over medicate. A shining diamond in a health system full of sandstone.
