What People Say About Dr. Natasha Akhter, MD
Reply
Dr. Akhter is part time and her patients were not made aware. Her schedule is horrible. Her notification of information of her practicing status, new office location, and scheduling is horrible. There is zero regard for patience time with this physician.
