She is wonderful. She doesn't have the "God complex" so many doctors have. She takes her time and the patient in front of her is the most important person in her world. And she has a sense of humor that is priceless - if this medicine thing doesn't work out, she could be a stand up.

She was excellent. This was my first time seeing her since I could not get in with my regular doctor. She went over my medical history as she had my records to refer to. She did not rush my visit and was very thorough. I was very pleased with her professionalism, compassion and treatmemt especially since I am not her regular patient. I agree with all her other reviews!

I would definitely recommend Dr. Akhtar. She’s very friendly and thorough. I love the way she explains things to her patient (me) while making suggestions for better health practices. My wait has never been long and I love the video screens that are in the rooms. When I have questions that put on the portal, I always get a prompt answer.

Absolutely love her, her nurse, and the staff. Dr. Akhtar is so cheerful when she walks in the room. She takes the time to make sure that you understand everything she has talked about at that visit. She genuinely seems to care about her patients. Having trust in a doctor means everything and I completely trust what she says. At one time her office was not covered by my insurance but I chose to continue seeing her.
