Dr. Akkad is the most patient-centric physician I've had the pleasure of dealing with in Arizona. He obviously knows his business; most physicians do. What sets him apart from the rest is his genuine interest and concern for each patient. He took time to thoroughly explain my son's situation in lay terms we could both understand. It was very refreshing to have a doctor take time to listen to our questions and concerns. Then addressed each question and concern in a personal manor. He responded in such a way we knew he had truly listened to us. It was great being treated as a person and not just another cow in the herd.

I was considering back surgery and had an EKG done to get the ball rolling. When Katherine Minor, PA-C, saw the results, the word "abnormal" was mentioned! Over the next several days, the pain in my chest was constant, and I went to the ER for treatment! A second EKG was done, and it abnormal! Dr Zaher Akkad was notified and another EKG was started! Shortly, a "Code Red, Room 12 was announced." The nurse told me that I was having a heart attack, and I was moved to the ICU. When Dr Akkad arrived, I was moved to another treatment room, and sedated. A stent was inserted into one of the main arteries in my heart, and blood-flow returned to near normal conditions. After the procedure, Dr Akkad told my wife that I had a 99% blockage in the "Widow Maker" artery! Was I lucky? Maybe, but I also had a terrific team that was lead by Dr Zaher Akkad. I came away thinking that Dr Akkad and PA-C Katherine Minor are true superstars who work extraordinarily well together! I highly recommend them!

Dr. Zaher Akkad deserve a Gold-Star for being an excellent cardiologist and an Outstanding human being. (outstanding human being) Imagine finding out that you need heart surgery when you do not have health insurance. I was lucky to have my surgery preformed by Dr. Akkad, and would confidently recommend him and his staff to anyone.

I'm grateful for Dr. Akkad and his assistant Katie for saving me from a heart attack. I'm a 62 yr old guy with no previous cardiovascular history. My only symptom was a feeling of pressure or tightness in my chest when doing cardio exercises at the gym. More annoying than anything. I aced the stress test which didn't explain my symptoms, then a angiogram revealed I had 3 blocked coronary arteries over 80 %. Needless to say, I owe them both my life. Pay attention to your body. Thanks guys !

I generally dont like Doctors. I would say I am probably a difficult patient at times because Im stubborn and I dont like being told what i can and cant do. I liked Dr. Akkad , and Katie Minor immediately. Both Dr. Akkad and Katie are very easy to talk to and discuss things with. I wish only that I had found them sooner. All of the office staff has always been professional and friendly. I would highly recommend Dr. Akkad and his staff.

Dr.Akkad And Katie Minor are very good at what they do. They Take the time to answer ALL of your questions and are very thorough when going over procedures or test results. Katie has a genuine compassionate nature and is very caring.

Dr. Akkad is very professional and personable. He listens and takes a proactive approach to my heart condition. I trust his judgement and that he does not take a "wait and see" attitude toward my ongoing heart condition. It's been 6 years and a week since I was wheeled into emergency and he put a stent into my heart and I am fortunate to find a doctor and his P.A. Katie Minor who both work toward my well being.

After 3 years of seeing two other cardiologist with no good results I finally did some research of cardiologist and with a recommendation from a friend I saw DR Akkad that looked at my testing so far and in 24 hours had me at Banner hospital for a stent on an artery that was 99% clogged. How the other cardiologist took there time I do not know but Dr Akkad pretty much might have saved my life. I would recommend him 100 % He explains, takes his time and knows what he is doing.

Dr. Akkad is an amazing cardiologist that really went the extra mile to help my husband. He is very knowledgeable and works with his patients to ensure their understanding of their condition and the treatment plan. We couldn't have asked for a better doctor.
