"Dr. Akhtar has treated me for various foot and ankle issues as well as surgically repaired my left ankle. I can say that his knowledge and expertise in this field greatly surpasses other podiatrists in the area. He is at the forefront of the latest medical advancements that he utilizes when and if surgery is needed/chosen.  He is a professional, thoughtful, and passionate individual aside from being a physician.  His office is sheek, modern, and clean.  Additionally, his office personnel is accommodating and professional.  Therefore, I highly recommend Dr. Akhtar for anything pertaining to podiatry issues."

"Dr. Akhtar diagnosed a long-standing issue that was not being identified here in the UK. I was so impressed that I flew to the US for treatment with him. I can not express in words the professionalism and high-class care that he provided, right through to my full recovery. I recommend and trust him completely."
