October 07, 2016

Very pleased with all staff and Dr.

October 05, 2016

Dr. Achkar is one of the best doctors that I have seen for my medical care of fibromyalgia. He has never minimized my concerns about pain or judged me for having pain unexplained by medical tests. He makes a well informed diagnosis and treatment plan based on a thorough review of my medical records, my observations and concerns about my symptoms, the physical exam, and his expert knowledge in the field. I feel the treatment plan is collaborative because he truly listens to my concerns and tailors accordingly.

October 05, 2016

Whether or not there was a miscommunication regarding my appointment time I was left waiting in the doctors office room for 40 minutes. Once the doctor arrived he was called out of the office twice before I had to tell him this was un-except-able to me
