I thought Dr. Akhtar seemed very thorough in terms of medical advice, but she was very cold and unfriendly. I didn’t feel comfortable around her.

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 andhad several courses of action for me to choose from. I will definitely be going back :) Highly Recommended.
