I questioned a spot on my back. She said to see a dermatologist - wouldn't even try to pop it. This was a wellcare visit. Never checked my lungs or breathing. Disappointed overall

Dr Akbari always makes sure to involve the patient with plans, decisions or any changes regarding care. She was highly recommended and I can see why. Very grateful to have her taking care of myself and my family.

Dr Akbari was amazing! I switched because I felt like I wasn't being listened to, she listened to my concerns and was so informative! She even called me personally about my lab results and answered all my questions.

Dr. P is a caring physician. Very good at finding clarification of even the smallest details. I am very very satisfied with her abilities.

Felt like she was reading a script. Did not appear to have read through my file. Did not seem knowledgeable about issues relating to someone my age.

Dr. Akbari listened attentively and she did NOT hurry through my visit!

First visit with her, seemed nice enough

I have referred many people, including family. I am disappointed in the length of time it takes to get an appointment to see the doctor and some family members have left due to that issue.

Doctor was not helpful. She was not familiar with my records. She did not read through the records to prepare herself with the concerns I had come to the clinic for.

Dr. Akbari asked a lot of questions but didn't give options in referrals.

Jan 27, 2023

Dr. Akbari is the first doctor in a very long time that I feel actually listens to me.

Jan 27, 2023

First time I met Dr. Akbari was with my last visit. She was highly recommended by my previous PMD. Was not disappointed. She was friendly and thorough. She listened and worked with me with my health issues for the best outcome. As an RN, I must say I am impressed and am very glad to have her and her team providing care for myself and my family.

Nov 23, 2022

The provider was very professional and listened very well. I haven't seen my pcp in a while so I had a lot of concerns and she listened very well and I'm very glad I chose her to see. She explained everything in a way I could understand and took time in the room incase there were things I didn't think of right away.
