On day before Thanksgiving I called office, re: a high heart rate.I was immediately called back to come right away; Upon arrival, An EKG was performed confirming an arrhythmia. Dr. A immediately sent me to the ER where I was met within ten minutes of being prepped. He did everything to ensure that I would not have to be admitted for the holiday ensuring I was stable to be discharged.I've had many doctors and there are very few that make you feel important and special like Dr Ackerman does.

Excellent Doctor, take his time to listen very carefully his patients..

We are in the 90's year old. He treats us like his parents. So kind, so affable, compassionate always makes jokes and comments on his favorite sport teams. In times of dire need, he is always there. He is never in a hurry, has all the time to listen to your complaints. I wish all my family had him as their Cardiologist.

I WOULD RECOMMEND, DR ACKERMANN, TO START OFF I WILL QUICKLY SAY THAT HE MAKES U FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE, HE LISTENS TO WHAT U HAVE TO SAY, HE WILL EXPLAIN THE BEST OPTIONS TO TAKE, ALL BY LISTENING TO YOUR QUESTIONS, AND FEAR,S HE IS SIMPLY WONDERFUL. I WOULD WISH THAT ALL DOCTORS WERE AS CAREING FOR THERE PATIENTS AS DR ACKERMANN. GOOD LUCK PLEASE CONSIDER DR ACKERMANN, YOU WILL NOT GO WRONG.
