Expertise

Biography

Dr. Adnan Akhtar is a board-certified hematologist and medical oncologist who has been providing expert medical care for patients across Central Florida for more than a decade. He specializes in oncology, hematology and internal medicine, and has substantial experience in treating patients with blood disorders and multiple other cancers. He provides inpatient and outpatient chemotherapy, pain management for cancer patients, advanced treatments for blood disorders, access to clinical trials and follow-up care. Dr. Akhtar's dedication to the field of medicine came naturally to him, as his parents were respected physicians and his personal heroes growing up. As a medical student, he was again inspired to become an oncologist by his mentor, Dr. Tauseef Ahmed, who was the director of bone marrow transplants at New York Medical College. Dr. Ahmed’s outstanding compassion, knowledge, professional relationships and patient care became the model of excellence that Dr. Akhtar seeks to emulate every day.

If I could give Dr. Akhtar a higher score, I would. He was attentive, caring, knowledgeable and acted as if he had all the time in the world for me. As an added bonus , he was not on a computer looking away from me the whole visit. He actually looked at me!

I can't say enough good things about Dr Ahktar He is so compassionate-he genuinely seems to care about how a patient feels. He is willing to listen and answer all of my questions as long I keep asking them! Having had cancer is a traumatic experience so I am always admittedly anxious when I go in. However, when I leave I leave feeling much better. I feel very confident in his knowledge of treatments, etc and his reassurance-I feel he has my back. What more can a patient ask for from their cancer doctor-he's the best!
