She decided that she no longer wanted me as a patient after I sought a second opinion on my care plan from a Dr that specializes in IBD. I called her office to request a referral to a hemotologist at the suggestion of that other doctor. Her assistant told me that she would not refer me because I was no longer a patient. I attempted to switch to another provider in the practice and I was told that if she wouldn't see me, no one else in the practice would. They said she would call me to explain. I received a letter stating that we were unable to maintain a satisfactory relationship and she would no longer see me. No call, no explanation. I have been a patient of Digestive Specialists since 2015, I began seeing Dr Akram in 2019. I feel so let down by the way this was all handled. Now I have to find a new practice for myself and my daughter. It's just shameful that a doctor would behave in such a rude, inconsiderate and unprofessional manner.

My visit was a warm and carring environment. Dr. Akram was open and available for questions. She called me the evening of the procedure and again four days later with the biopsy results. The oncologist and surgeon she referred me too were also considerate and very helpful.

I wouldn`t recommend her to anyone. She never seemed to care about me . She had no empathy for me. She only spent 1 minute with me when I had appointment with her. I am very disappointed.

I normally see another doctor in this practice, but needed to be seen sooner. Dr Akram was kind, listened, reviewed my chart and discussed with me a treatment plan. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends.

She was very unprofessional and rude. She didn't even look at my chart until I had asked a question. I just moved to the area and transferred from another office, and she made it clear she didn't want me as a patient from the time she sat down. What kind Doctor doesn't shake your hand when they first meet you...A rude one like Dr. Akram! I wouldn't reccommend seeing this Dr. unless you want to waste your money to be treated like crap.

She asks you questions and before you can finish answering she cuts you off as if she knows what you're going to say next.
