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.
