Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity.

Extremely Talented Doctor Akkary

I am a Clinical Psychologist who consults with many physicians in Morgantown and area. I have interviewed dozens of Dr Akkary's patients before and after bariatric surgery. Their satisfaction with him and his staff is amazing. Patients feel like he has changed their lives and he follows up with them for years. He even gives them his personal cell phone number for 24/7 contact after the surgeries. If my family or I needed surgery within his scope, he would be our surgeon.

Dr. Akkary has performed 2 surgeries on me and I would recommend him to anyone. His bedside manner is like no other. My first visit I was given his cell number and he encourages you to call any time day or night. No other doctor has ever done that for me. He takes his time and explains everything and even draws a picture to show you what will be done. He has given me my life back and I couldn't be more thankful!!!

If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to you and explain what & why he's going to do something, you have found him. He has the added benefit of a wonderful bedside manner minus the arrogance found in doctors ( just because they are doctors, you have met a few if you're reading this I'm sure). In all he's a wonderful person who if you're lucky enough to find him, give him a call. You will have an amazing doctor who is there for you without dodging your call's no matter how silly you think the question or thought may be ( this isn't a paid ad I promise, you have his cellphone number incase of anything no matter the time. Sorry, but I've never been able to reach a doctor 24-7 without going through a answering service and even then how many times do you get to talk to them? Not many from my experience and I've seen more doctors than I care to think about.) he's always able to answer it or calm your pre surgery nerves. He's great if you're looking for anything in his specialty and if I could, he'd be my doctor for everything, but he's only one person so I will settle for his specific fields.
