What People Say About Dr. Shaheda Akhtar, MD

We love Dr. Akhtar, she has been seeing my daughter for anxiety and my son for ADHD. She is so sweet and great with my children and I truly feel she cares about their well-being. I’d say the only negative is the location, I wish there was a separate entrance for outpatients. Linda at the desk is always helpful.

Dr. Akhtar is one of the few and best child psychiatrists in the Orlando area. Please, One disgruntled client who does not want to face the truth . In fact the toxicity of her statement shows that she has serious problems. Dr. Akhtar is extremely knowledgeable and honest. She is the best psychiatric diagnostician I know. I am a licensed mental health counselor for 37 years and worked with her over 20 years ago and now. She is not only experienced beyond almost any psychiatrist in this town ; she is also honest and caring. We are lucky to have her in this community. Note have not been her client but she has supervised. I agreed below because it was the only way I could submit my opinion

Simply a disgusting women. Another faux money hungry psychiatrist. This lady would not know you. Try to brainwash you into thinking you're mentally ill, give you a bunch of toxic drugs to further disorient you, and get you hooked into the system. This is all of them. They know what they're doing. Classic physiatrist. The corruption of the psychiatric field, behavioral hospitals, and mental drugs are an accurate reflection of this sheep here. Shaheda Akhtar.

Very bad doctor, do not trust her. She will go behind people's back and almost ruin lives. She has no ethics or morals she is very conniving cunning and evil.
