Since the start of his practice, Dr. Akkary has been consistently receiving awards for his dedicated & compassionate patient care.


"Been going to Dr.Akkary since October, but finally got to attend the seminar last night (3-19-15). I must say I've never been impressed by a doctor as I was with him. Simply amazing and very personable, put me at ease and made me feel like we were old friends. I would highly recommend him and his staff, looking forward to becoming healthier and having their help."

"Dr. Akkary gave me my life back. I'm almost 7mos post op. Down 134lbs with 50 more to goal. I love my new me and I can't wait for my skin revisions. Thank you Dr. Akkary."

"I'm only 10 weeks post op total of 12 with liquid diet I have came such a long ways I started out at 261 I am now down to 200 Dr Akkary has changed my life no it hasn't been the easiest Road but this journey is worth the wIld... I can't wait to see what the rest of the Brings...thank you so much"

"Dr Akkary and his staff have made my office experience one of a kind. As a fellow healthcare worker it's nice to see a Dr with such great bedside manner and caring demeanor for his patients. His staff is most pleasant and always greet you with a smile"

"Great! Professional and fun, a perfect combination!"

"Dr. Akkary is phenomenal!! He's thorough and does not leave you guessing during any part of the process - pre or post op. My entire lifestyle has changed and I'm forever thankful for him and his staff"

"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".
