Kept waiting for over 45 mins to be greeted by a doctor who disputed the MRI report and did not show any concern for why I was there and the amount of excruciating pain I am in on a daily basis. By the way, he spent maybe 5 - 10 minutes with me.

I drove and hour to meet Dr. Akhtar for the first time. I had a 2:00 appointment, got there at 1:30 to fill our paperwork. At 2:20 (already late) I was taken back to an exam room. Met with asst to get height weight basic vitals. At 3:10 I got up and walked out. Assistant said the doctor was running behind. Another hour back home, so I wasted close to 4 hours. I thought I'd wait till the next day to see if I wanted to re-schedule . . or at least get an apology. HAVE HEARD A WORD SINCE

I've had both a partial and full knee replacements with Dr Akhtar. He is the best. He is personable as well as an excellent and caring surgeon. His office staff is friendly and kind. He was recommended to me by another orthopedic surgeon ( who does sports medicine not replacements). It says a lot to be highly recommended by your peers.

The process of securing an appointment was seamless. The staff was knowledgeable, gracious and helpful. There was 0 waiting time. The nurse introduced herself, arranged x-rays and took me to X-ray. The x-ray tech made me comfortable. Dr. Akhtar was all a patient could hope for. He was concerned for my health. He explained my situation and showed me the x-rays. He gave me clear options and explained potential outcomes and worked with me on the options. The BEST EVER EXPERIENCE.

Did a right knee replacement after gel injections stopped working Small scar and great after care. Year later Dr. Akhtar did a left hip revision on a 20 year old hip replacement. Both times he was there to comfort me and listened to my fears and worries. Everyone needing orthopaedic surgery should see Dr. Akhtar.

Had SLAP tear, rotator cuff tear, arthritis, bone spurs. All fixed in one surgery. going through PT now. Minimal pain following surgery, Dr. Akhtar was very thorough in hi explanations of the injuries and the procedures required to fix them. Was always willing to spend time answering questions - both pre and post-op.

Dr. Akhtar is an incredibly skilled surgeon that helped me get my life back with an OUTPATIENT knee replacement. I came to see him after a colleague at work had an outpatient hip replacement. I was shocked at how smooth the process was and how much time the staff and the doctor spent with me during the entire process. Go see Dr. Akhtar for state of the art surgery and incredible care/bedside manner!

Dr Akhtar listens to his patients! I've been to three Ortho Surgeons, and he is, by far, the most in tuned with them. Highly recommend Dr Akhtar!

He gave me a nickel knee replacement when I am allergic to nickel and then told me I was crazy to still be having pain. This doctor did not even so much as try a cortisone shot before he scheduled me for knee replacement when I was only 54.

Dr. Akhtar patiently spent over 30 minutes discussing my treatment options. Thanks to his treatment I am back to playing tennis without pain! If you want a caring and compassionate physician, which is not always easy to find in a busy surgeon, go see Dr. Akhtar!

I found Dr. Akhtar to be very knowledgeable and kind. I trusted his advice for caring for my injury, and now my knee is fully healed. I would definitely recommend him.
