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. Heyworth

- in Andover, MA |

Dr. Heyworth surgically repaired a badly broken clavicle for my 12 year old son and then 8 weeks later repaired a tibia spine fracture(ACL) for the same child. He was considerate, respectful and help us understand all our options, risks and outcomes. I am so grateful to have had him treat our son. Unfortunately, we have had to see multiple surgeons in this practice and they are all an amazing group. I would hesitate to recommend Dr. Heyworth.

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.

Dr. Dinh and her staff are very competent and compassionate. I had a difficult surgery with numerous complications and have made a full recovery. Dr. Dinh is an excellent surgeon.

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!

Review of Dr. Ackerman

-Connecticut |

I took my daughter to see Dr. Ackerman for a stress fracture. We had gotten stuck in traffic and showed up late but Dr. Ackerman and her staff were very accommodating and made sure we still got in. Rather than simply treating the injury, Dr. Ackerman endeavored to uncover the underlying causes of the injury. My daughter is now plugged into Dr. Ackerman's multidisciplinary team to get her back on the field healthier than ever before. I cannot recommend the care of this physician enough.
