Best Doctor EVER!

I wish he could be my regular doctor. He genuinely cares, and always ask me how I'm doing, but not just physically, but emotionally and mentally, which all can show signs of stress on the heart. I had gone to another cardiologist, who diagnosed me as having congestive heart failure. I took the labs to Dr Akhtar, who looked at all the reports, conducted new ones, and compared it to my previous reports from 4 years earlier, to determine that i was misdiagnosed. Since I have been seeing him, I have felt so wonderful, fully of life, and feeling healthy. He's just awesome.

One visit resulted in more info and tests than other Cardiologist

After wasting a lot of time with my brother's old Cardiologist, we went to Dr. Akhtar. He was very informative and spent quality time with us to make sure we understood the problems. I recommend this doctor .

Dr. Akhtar is probably the best doctor I've ever seen. I had gone into the hospital due to Afib. He wasn't my cardiologist at the time, but he was doing the rounds that day. He was so attentive and explained everything so I could understand what he was saying. At some point I asked him to be my cardiologist and he said yes. it's one of the best decisions of my life.

The BEST doctor EVER!!✨🌟

Wow! We want to say every positive thought there is. This man's intelligence, truthfulness, sweetness, attentiveness,compassion, promptness, and kindness are outstanding as a person and as a doctor. He really listens to the patient and any concerns they may have. We found him extremely informative and easy to understand..no big medical terms you have to run home and look up. As for the office personnel and staff..they get five stars too. His office is clean, neat, organized, and nice! He runs most of his tests in his office which is wonderful! We love his personality too. He is really a great person. In the last 7 years, we have been to 3 out-patient surgery centers, 5 different hospitals, had a total of 6 surgeries between us. This doctor represents want all doctors should be..Fantastic!!
