Excellent doctor and staff. He spent alot of time with me and was very compassionate to my problems. He was more thorough than any other doctor I have seen for my condition. I thought his staff was wonderful and I felt they were very knowledgeable. I was very impressed with their care.

We saw Dr. Achkar in the hospital and he was very helpful in diagnosing my mother pain. When it flared up again we got a same day appointment. much to out amazement and gratitude!!! Dr. Achkar and his staff are wonderful!!!!

Dr. Achkar is an outstanding doctor, and I would highly recommend him. I've been to several doctors regarding my pain, and Dr. Achkar has been the most thorough and knowledgeable. He thoroughly reviewed my medical history and ordered additional testing in an effort to determine the onset and cause of my pain. I liked that he recommended a conservative treatment plan to alleviate my pain using a minimal amount of prescription drugs.

dr Achkar has always gone beyond what would be expected. Because of him a serious lipo carcoma was discovered while it was still operable. My wife and I are very thankful for his care during the past number of years.
