We have been taking both of our children to Dr. Akhter since they were babies. My daughter, who is now 12, has been through some serious health issues resulting in a rare diagnosis. I don't know where we would be if it weren't for all of Dr. Akhter's expertise and care.

Dr. Akhter is a great pediatrician! My granddaughters have been seeing him for at least 5 yrs now, they love him and his staff. All are very friendly and knowledgeable. I drive an hour each way to take them to him, that's how much confidence I have in him. I have one who is special needs and she loves him too, he's really great with her. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Stay away! Does not really care about you and your baby. You have to figure out everything yourself.

Dr. Akhter has always answered our questions and listened to what we have to say. His bedside manner is great and my son (12 yrs old) really likes him and his personality. Staff is great as well. I have no complaints and am glad I chose this pediatric office.
