What People Say About Dr. Riaz Akhtar, MD
Reply
He is honest and forthright! He is very experienced and explained my condition so I could understand without a battery of tests and services. I have in 6 months taken his advice and reduced my numbers in weight, fat, A1C and sleep apnea. After seeing him I was relieved after 16 years of dealing with the DuPage Medical Group. He is an excellent Doctor. I highly recommend him. Their offices may not be to your liking but the health care you will get is the best.
