I met with Dr. Akhtar last week and I have been raving about my experience to family and friends. I was impressed by how everyone in the office welcomed me, introduced themselves and took the time to get to know me as it was my first visit. Since I had fasted, I was able to have my blood drawn before I ever left the office and had results in less than 24 hours. Highly recommend anyone needing a new internal medicine Dr to make an appointment to see Dr. Akhtar.
