How likely are you to recommend Dr. Akkad?

(Select your rating)
I have visited Dr. Akkad on several critical occasions regarding a serious heart valve issue. Dr. Akkad advocated for me to have heart valve replacement via catheter instead of open heart. I made a tremendous, quick recovery and he will be my heart doctor for life!!! This past week, I met for a follow-up with with Katie Minor PAC and she is wonderful and extremely informative as well. If you are looking for a great team, this is it!! Thanks, Katie and Dr. Akkad!!
