Dr. Samin Akhtar – Family Care of Independence


(upbeat, plucky music) – I’m Samin Akhtar. I’m an
internal medicine physician. I practice here at Family
Care of Independence. I love my patients. That’s my first thing. I feel very comfortable with my patients. To start with, I feel if my mom, my dad, or my family member is sick,
how they need to be treated. How do I want their physician
to take care of them. So it’s very easy. It
comes naturally to me. So that part is easy, that I’ll be very affectionate, caring. For me,
because I was trained under British system, for them the history and the physical exam is very important. And I would do a thorough exam. I would do order the tests and everything, but for me it’s very
important to do a detailed exam, get the information from the patient, so by the time I’m sending my patient for any test, I know what is it gonna be. But most of the times, it
turns out to be that we are in ballpark in the same range
of where I was heading for. Actually I’m fond of calling my patients. I love to talk to my patients myself. It depends if I have time at hand, I will definitely do that,
but when the time I’m here in the office, I’m so dedicated
with the patients that I’m there. I’m hundred percent for them. I will give them all of my
time and all of my energy. My staff is awesome. They’re outstanding. Currently we have the best
staff, the best office manager. Erica’s taking care of
all of us very well. But my staff is outstanding.
They would help me, my nurses. All the, I also want to admire
the person we have in the lab here, Cathy, she is always there for us. So I think I cannot be,
and I would not be happy anywhere else. I have the
best staff and of course my colleagues. I should
always admire them. Doctor Carothers was
the guiding light, yes. He brought me here. And Doctor
Patterson, I admire her for the number of patients that she sees. So I think I am in the
very good place to be in. (lighthearted, plucky music) (IndependenceFamilyCare.com
