Dr. Mahfuja I Akanda has the following 2 specialties
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.
- 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.

I became ill on a Wednesday and called that Friday because I was not feeling well. I went in and all they did was a strep throat test. The weekend came and I got worse. I called again on Tuesday (6 day after 1st symptoms) around 11 am and the Dr. Akanda was busy and told me she would call at 4:10 pm. I know that the medical offices close at 5 pm, but I didn't have a choice so I waited. She called and I let her know about my intense pain. She told me she could see me tomorrow, but I told her I couldn't wait. She said that unfortunately it was too late to go there and see her or any other doctor, like I had feared. I ended up going to ER and there they did blood analysis and discovered I had a kidney/bladder infection. Needless to say the attention I received from the ER Dr. and Dr. Akanda was like night and day.
Dr. Akanda really cares about her patients, and it shows in her motherly generous bedside manner. Only wish I were not moving away from Davis. She spends the extra time (does not hurry or rush patients off) that other physicians do, takes the pause to listen to the patient, and fully addresses their care. Thank you Dr. Akanda!
