I have been in his care for 3 years, he is extremely caring and knowledgeable. I could not possibly recommend him more. He is the greatest!

Dr. Akbar cared for my mother and her heart for almost a year. When she was in the hospital, he would explain things to us in ways we would understand, and would draw diagrams for us to help us how the heart should work and how my mother's was working. He gave my mother amazing care. After she passed away, he help my family deal with the aftermath of the process.

I am afraid he switched me from Bystolic to Byvalson for a reason other than medical reasons.

Doctor Akbar came to assist in my diagnosis in the hospital this past weekend and he is the most professional, dedicated doctor I have ever dealt with. Even though my illness was not heart related he came back and checked on how I was doing. Great Doctor.

Dr. Akbar is one of the most professional and caring Cardiologists in the North Texas area. He is also board certified in Internal Medicine and has excellent training in some of best and busiest hospitals in the Northeast. I am thankful to have him here in Allen, TX.

Dr. Akbar is a kind hearted doctor. One of the few remaining doctor that puts his patients health first and isn't just interested in money. He spends as much time as you need in order to make you well. Since most of my health issues are pulmonary related, I use him as my main doctor and have been very happy to have a good doctor that doesnt just treat me like a number. The office staff is quite friendly as well.
