Dr. Akkary

I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I have been seeing Dr. Akkary since 2014. The first day I was given his cell number...that has NEVER happened before at any other doctor's office. He is genuine and compassionate and really only wants to help you succeed. I have called him so many times and he has ALWAYS answered my questions. He has performed 2 surgeries on me and I wouldn't go anywhere else! I trust him and his staff completely. They will listen to all of your concerns and explain everything completely!

Great for anything in his speciality

If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to you and explain what & why he’s going to do something, you have found him. He has the added benefit of a wonderful bedside manner minus the arrogance found in doctors ( just because they are doctors, you have met a few if you’re reading this I’m sure). In all he’s a wonderful person who if you’re lucky enough to find him, give him a call. You will have an amazing doctor who is there for you without dodging your call’s no matter how silly you think the question or thought may be ( this isn’t a paid ad I promise, you have his cellphone number incase of anything no matter the time. Sorry, but I’ve never been able to reach a doctor 24-7 without going through a answering service and even then how many times do you get to talk to them? Not many from my experience and I’ve seen more doctors than I care to think about.) he’s always able to answer it or calm your pre surgery nerves. He’s great if you’re looking for anything in his specialty and if I could, he’d be my doctor for everything, but he’s only one person so I will settle for his specific fields.

My acid reflux and GERD was curable
