April 14, 2016

My appiontment went very well. My Rheumatoid is pretty much under control as far as my pain...

April 12, 2016

my provider always takes the time to listen to my questions and concerns.

April 08, 2016

Really liked how Dr. Achkar went over with me side effects of possible medications on the computer, broke it all down for me regarding my decision. Then also provided with non medication soluations making me feel that wasn't the only route I needed to go. Also giving pros and cons instead of one way direction.

April 01, 2016

Dr. Achkar is an excellent physician. He is very thorough and never rushes through an appointment. I have GREAT confidence in him.

Really appreciate Dr. Achkar!!!

March 07, 2016

The doctor was very attentive & took a lot of time with us and was not in a hurry to push out the door.

March 01, 2016

Dr. Achkar remembered details of my personal history and was able to speak to my lifestyle choices in a helpful and supportive manner. His medical concerns about my sports preparation and exercise program were tempered by his knowledge that I would not be amenable to giving up my training schedule to get better accuracy on my muscle enzyme test. He also was very concerned about the side effects of my new medication, and offered me the opportunity to weigh all the consequences before prescribing them.
