I had a wonderful experience with Dr Akhrass and his staff. Dr Akhrass took the time to explain to me and my husband my condition. He made me feel very comfortable, considering the fact that I was very scared. I would highly recommend Dr Akhrass to anyone in need of an excellent electrophysiologist.
