    Dr. Yolanda Heman Ackah is an excellent medical practitioner. She is conservative in her approach, very expereinced, trained with the best doctors in her field, and is excellent at documenting your illness and treatment. She is easily in the top tier of doctors who treat in this area of medicine. Amazing in her generous time for visits, she has been helpng me for several years, and addresses medical concerns and issues, recalibrating treatment when necessary.

    Dr. Heman-Ackah had been my ENT for years. I send all of my friends to her when they are having ENT problems. Can't say enough about her bedside manner and ability to diagnose and treat tough problems that other ENT's don't.

    Dr. Heman-Ackah is absolutely the best. She is very thorough and a great doctor. I would recommend her to anyone who is having ear, nose and throat issues. The office is allergy free for those of us with sensitivities to perfumes, so do not come wearing perfume or other scented body products.

    Great quality of service and treatment! Maybe not the most gregarious physician I've ever encountered, but I abide by the allergen-free rules of the office and visit her for her undeniable expertise. In the few visits I have had, she has taken a considerable amount of time to generate and carefully explain my plan of care during the appointment itself. She has consulted with other physicians regarding my treatment and made time to see me for newly developed concerns, without long wait times.

    I've been a patient of Dr Heman-Ackah since 2010. She is extrememly knowledgeable & thorough. Very few doctors go over & above to see you well. She's a blessing. Come unscented. I highly recommend her!!!

    Dr. Heman-Ackah is absolutely the best. I have been seeing her for years and wouldn't see anyone else. She is very allergic to perfumes and scented body products and for every single appointment I've had with her, her office staff reminds me not to wear anything scented when I make my appointment and again the day before my appointment when they call to confirm. They also send a postcard reminder. The receptionist has always been very kind and very helpful.

    The receptionist by far,the rudest person I've dealt with in a medical practice.She called to confirm my appt & on my referral it said Dr. Herman Ackah, so I said, "I'm looking forward to working with him." She said annoyed, "Yea,except he's a woman!"I asked should I come 15 minutes prior for paperwork & her response was whatever.I walked in today,she sneared & said,"you're wearing a scent!" I said,"I showered."She said,you'll have to leave I can smell you.Incredibly rude!!Never going back.
