"Patient care is my passion. Making sure my patients receive a quick response to their needs is my first priority. There are no time obligations or restrictions when it comes to my patients. As a post-doctoral research fellow, I published my papers in renowned journals on a common medical problem. Because of my surgical background, my patients have the advantage of getting small procedures done here at the office." Dr. Akhter is a designated civil surgeon.
