Specialties

Dr. Ayesha Akbar has the following 2 specialties

  • Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

    An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
    Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

what I think of these office

This place had been the worst office I have ever been too. Its very hard to talk to a real person. Took a week to get them to call my drugs and then still call in the wrong ones. Seeing the doctor for the first time she knows nothing about me and looks at me and ask if I every thought of getting surgery for my weight. Orders a drug for me they can't even get. I had it with this Doctor and her office I'm going to find a new Doctor

Very satisfied

I have been patient of Dr Akbar since 2004. I find she knows her profession very well and is about optimizing your health without filling you with medication. Many people want a pill & quick fix. Dr Akbar is looking at your long term health not just masking a symptom. She is not there to be your friend but an advocate for your health! You get what you put into your visit if you are not working toward your own health she knows it & puts in the same effort her patients do! I have recommended her to friends & family! Some don't want to change their diet so they changed their doctor stopped seeing her! She has helped me with my thyroid and hormone imbalances!
