Dr. Akhtar is professional but warm at the same time! Very explanatory as well - would highly recommend.
Dr. Akhtar was great! Super professional, but also very easy going. I am pregnant and needed an eye appt. to check for retinopathy - and she knew all of the risks and workarounds regarding the dilation drops ahead of time and had several courses of action for me to choose from. I will definitely be going back :) Highly Recommended.
