I do NOT believe that Dr. Akhras has done ANYTHING wrong. He is the best doctor I've ever met. Been going to him for 3 years and have NEVER seen anything but professionalism, efficiency, and medical expertise at its finest.

I think the phrase "innocent until proven guilty" needs to be remembered by all, including Democrat Martin Sandoval who wants to shut him down based on pure accusation of ONE 13-yr-old child!!!

I feel sorry for the Doctor, It seems to me that some people are so desperate for the economy in this country, that they just invent anything to get easy money and jeopardice the future of this doctor. Do you think this is a conspiracy????

What possible motive would a child have to do this? I am DISGUSTED that once again I have to read comments where people don't believe a victim. You are right--we don't know the truth--but that works both ways. Just because it didn't happen to you doesn't mean it didn't happen to someone else!!!! UGH!

No, I think that too many people would rather believe a prominent adult than a lowly victim, especially children. It reminds me of those women whose daughters come to them and tell them that their man molested them and the mothers believe the men over their own children! Disgusting!

I think Nena is right. Lawyers are crooked and the family will get a pretty penny in this easy money scheme. And then we wonder why healthcare is so expensive.

Dr. Akhras stands accused of a crime he could never
have committed. He is a model for decency, honesty,integrity. A charming, charismatic, yet modest in appearance, Dr. akhras spends a ggod portion of his time on charitablpoe work, worship, and helping those in need. I am sure the truth will prevail and he will be cleared, Gos's Willing.
