This doctor is not my daughters, usual doctor. But I would definitely recommend that he become her regular doctor. He was very good with her and she usually doesn't like the doctors but he made her feel comfortable. He talked to her and he was very knowledgeable and very kind.

Akbar was my doctor when I was growing up. I followed him from mercy for my daughter. He remembers my family and my life. He will ask me questions like how I am doing or my sister. I couldn't ask for a better person centered doctor.

Dr Akbar is knowledgeable and teaches as he treats the patient. He knows how to troubleshoot health problems and he doesn't miss a beat. He's very personable and remembers his patients even though he has many, that's because he genuinely cares.

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.

As of December 31, 2016, Khalid Akbar did not disclose any Outside Relationships with Industry.
