Review of Dr. Ackerman

-Boston, MA |

Dr. Ackerman is patient, caring and thorough. She always listens to my concerns and helps to put together a plan that focuses on health and wellness in addition to taking into consideration goals of my sports and activities. Dr. Ackerman is an excellent physician and I would highly recommend her to any friend or family member looking for a doctor who specializes in Sports Medicine and/or female athlete health and wellness.

Review of Dr. Ackerman

- in Boston, MA |

Dr.Ackerman is a compassionate, honest doctor. I always recommend her to my teammates and friends. She not only treated my stress fractures, but created a treatment team to address the root cause of them and help me develop the skills to cope with both. Her knowledge and research of both orthopedic and endocrine issues is unique and ensured I got the best, most up to date treatment. I would not have be able to go on to continue my athletic career at a Div 1 university without her.

Review of Dr. Ackerman

- in Boston, MA |

Dr. Ackerman was an amazing resource for me when I was healing my 5th stress fractures. She found the source of why I was getting so many stress injuries and worked to change the cause rather than just treat the injury. She cared so much about returning me to the sport that I love so much and I am forever grateful to her.

Review of Dr. Ackerman

-Waltham, MA |

I just read another review and it is identical to mine. We waited almost an hour. We were in the room for over 40 minutes waiting. She came in and did not apologize for the wait. She was very curt and just sent us to get an MRI (without explanation). She acted as if she could not possibly care less. She also treated me like an idiot. Funny because in 2 mins she actually spent with us she was able to convey condescension, irritation and lack of caring. Impressive!

Review of Dr. Ackerman

-Chelmsford |

Incredibly disappointed. I waited an hour and a half past appointment time to see her for three minutes. She was incredibly condescending - quite literally the most dismissive doctor I've seen. She had no insight to offer me despite her reputation; she gave me cursory advice already given by my PCP and easily discoverable on the internet. Very disappointed I wasted time in my busy schedule.

Review of Dr. Ackerman

-Wayland, MA |

Dr. Ackerman diagnosed and managed the care of my daughter's very unfortunate spinal injuries (stress fractures and bulging discs) which occurred while she was rowing on a crew team. We have been so impressed by and grateful for Dr. A's expertise, kindness, directness, and encouragement through this process. We are feeling so very fortunate to have found such a caring and attentive sports medicine physician. And her office team is simply amazing - responsive, efficient, and truly empathetic.

Review of Dr. Ackerman

-Tilton, NH |

Dr Ackerman, Was a fantastic resource for our injured daughter. Her knowledge and treatment of our daughters injuries was outstanding . She was also able to give us some preventive tips as well as red flags to look for when our daughter is cleared to play. Her background in sports medicine AND endocrinology is a rare and valuable resource for any female athlete with issues or injuries.

Review of Dr. Ackerman

- in Somerville, MA |

Dr. Ackerman, is one of the best doctors that I have ever seen. I have never felt more confident that I was receiving the best possible care. She was incredibly personable and spent the time it took with me to make sure that I received the best possible care. Would highly recommend!

Review of Dr. Ackerman

- in Hanover, NH |

I had seen multiple doctors before finally getting lucky enough to see Dr. Ackerman. I had been on birth control and it was causing me to have break through bleeding and seizures but none of the doctors I saw took me seriously and they all told me I was fine. Then I saw Dr. Ackerman and she listened to me and took my concerns seriously. She got me on the right medications and then followed up with me to make sure I was OK. I can't thank her enough and feel so lucky to have found her!
