Congratulations To Our 2021 Benchmark Provider Spotlight of the Quarter!

Our Provider Spotlight of the Quarter is Sandy Akrawe, M.D.!

Med School: Al-Kindy College of Medicine, Baghdad University – Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery
Residency: Wayne State University / Detroit Medical Center

Ever since she was a child, Dr. Akrawe has always had a passion for helping others. When she saw that her love for art, science, and interacting with others could be combined in medicine, she decided to become a doctor. Her favorite part of being a doctor is being able to provide a safe space, medical care, and mental support for her patients and their loved ones. She also enjoys being able to work hand in hand with her colleagues and the hospital staff as a team, and admires the respect, love, and compassion they have for one another.

Outside of the hospital, Dr. Akrawe is one of five children, and her family is known as the life of the party. She says that they are always the first to get on a dance floor and the last to leave it. Her hobbies include meditation, painting, interior design, and reading on topics such as quantum physics, the subconscious mind, psychology, spirituality, and self-development.
