Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Akhtar ""Trying to figure out what ails someone greatly sparks my interest. I take great pride in solving a mystery. I feel that we are on the earth for such a limited amount of time, and that if I can contribute to making my patients' time on earth happier or easier, I have done my job. Every day I am thankful that I am given the honor and privilege to practice medicine, and that people are willing to entrust me with their health, and share with me their deepest secrets." - Nadeem Akhtar, M.D."

Dr. Akhtar fixed my tendinitis in my wrist using TENS therapy! I had gone to a hand surgeon and got a steroid shot in my wrist and it did not help. It got bigger and it was still painful. When I left Dr. Akhtar with no more splint. Thank you, I will be calling you if I have pain ANYWHERE!
