Excellent first visit. Totally reviewed everything with me and explained different possibilities. Am doing further testing and feel very confident as to future outcome. He took all the time necessary to help me - while making sure to see his other scheduled patients in a timely fashion.

Dr. Akhtar operated on my foot in February 2014 while he was in another practice in South Jersey. I was so upset when he moved up to North Jersey, I decided to make the 1-1/2 hr. trip just to see himfor follow-up appointments instead of staying with the practice down here. He's honest, takes his time and explains everything to you as you go. I honestly cannot say enough about him. Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

My problem was not with Dr. He was very good. I had been given a card for follow up appointment time and date. Arranged my schedule with work and for the day. I called first thing to ask if I couldcome in earlier and was told there were no DR.'s there for that day. No appointments on their computer, not apologetic and a little snippy about it. From there conversation went down hill. Not going back!
