What People Say About Dr. Salman Akhtar, MD
Reply
I have never (in last 7 years) been treated by a clinical physician in such a way; where I wasn't intimidated by their wisdom and opinions; rather was empowered to understand and neutrally accept their advise on treatments which would better my health. Creating a "Positive Memorable Experience" for each life a physician touches could only be gained through right intent, willingness to empower along with a strong commitment to hospitality & genuine care. That is what I got from Dr. Akhtar.

His bedside manner is a perfect balance of warm/ genuine concern with straightforward equanimity that is quite soothing. He demonstrates a communication competency that should be a benchmark for all professionals in their respected fields. I feel he is truly interested in the quality and care of my well-being. He is an invaluable asset to the medical community and to my personal cardiac care.
