Naheed R. Akhter, MD, FACOG  - Downers Grove, IL


“I love both obstetrics and surgery. I get great satisfaction from using leading-edge technology in ob/gyn, which is why I learned to do daVinci robotic surgery. One of my daVinci patient’s experiences was recorded in a story in the May 2011 issue of the Adventist Hospital online publication, keepingchicagowell.com. ‘Dr. Akhter told me I was going to love the da Vinci method and that I’d still be able to go skiing,’ Wazio said. ‘And she was right. My recovery has been phenomenal. I didn’t even fill my pain medicine prescription.’”

“What I enjoy the most is patient interaction. I pride myself on being a good listener. I am a ‘people person’ and form easy and quick rapport with my patients – who regard me as their friend. I was particularly gratified that one of my patients mentioned repeatedly in her beautiful book, ‘A Random Interruption: Surviving Breast Cancer with Laughter, Vodka, Smoothies and an Attitude’ how she loved my compassion and support in helping her deal with her cancer.

“I hope to give my patients the best and most empathetic care possible. I also run a program for senior citizens and am active in the human rights community.”
