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.
