Verified Patient Reviews
Doctor was over an hour late coming from a different office. People waiting started leaving as he walked in. When the doctor was giving me my eye exam I had so patiently waited for, he was not even apologetic about being so late, when I joked with him about the traffic and it being a holiday weekend, he said "I missed my exit". I was initially going to purchase my glasses from this office but after wasting over an hour of my time with no apology, I decided to go spend my money elsewhere. No respect for people's time.
I went to Dr Akhtar for an eye 911 and I found the staff nice and friendly. There were 6 patients ahead of me but it didn't take too long to see the doctor. He was very pleasant and knowledgable and respectable.
Good service, but I wait an hour to see thw doctor
Dr. Akhtar seemed very knowledgeable and was very thorough in his explanation. The wait wasn't too long, but I did had to fill all the forms out again as the info did not download from zocdoc. I would most likely recommend this doctor if someone was looking for one.
MD wasProfessional kind Knowledgeable ,and comforting.
I purposely made my appointment at 9:00 am because I had a lot of things to do on Saturday. I arrived exactly at 9:00 and the doctor didn't arrive until 10:10. I asked the girls in the office twice when he would be coming before he arrived and both times I got disapproving looks. When the doctor finally arrived, he didn't even apologize for his lateness or give any explanation as to why he was late. Needless to say I will be looking for another ophthalmologist.
horrible place... Very bad and rude staff.. I was waiting there for more than hour and staff took someone who came after me bcuz she was her friend...
Very professional and they accommodate you and make you comfortable
He is an OK doctor, he didn't give less care or a lot care during my eye exam. Overall he is all right, but not the best.
Will not make another appointment with this Doctor. Not a very organized office.
overall i am satisfied
I've been seeing Dr. Akhtar for a few years now. I would recommend him to others.
I took my dad to see Dr. Akhtar, who quickly determined he needed surgery for catarac. Dr. Akhtar performed the surgery and my dad is seeing through his left eye again. Thank you Dr. Akhtar.
