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.
