    Dr. Akerman is the best fertility specialist I've seen in my life. I consulted other two that rejected me and gave me only egg donation as an option. I did IVF and now I'm pregnant and ready to deliver my baby. He is a wonderful doctor that always listen to you and spend all the time you need, you never feel rushed. The nurses are all great, so caring about you. I strongly recommend him and the Fertility Center
