I had a vaginal birth with a 2nd degree tear in 4 different places. Dr. Akerman took his time and precision with the repair which healed nicely. He also performed a beautiful circumcision on my son. He is extremely knowledgable in his line of work and performs with top quality. However, he always seemed to be in a rush during appointments which resulted in poor bed side manner, he would just make jokes. He will also push for an epidural to move the birth along. However, I trust his judgment 100%

Dr. Akerman is an excellent, hard-working physician who knows his stuff! He delivered my first baby (a healthy boy)! Now, I am back under his care for my second and wouldn't consider going to anyone else to deliver my kids!

Dr. Akerman was my OB/Gyn for my first baby. He is funny and always answered all my questions honestly- no matter how dumb they were. The day i was in labor- i saw him at 8:00 in the morning at the hospital and he was there to deliver my baby at 11:00 at night. I was very impressed by his dedication!! I am pregnant with my second child and will be using Dr. Akerman again!
Corona, CA |
Quick to give C-sections and very impatient. He was covering for the hospital the night I went into labor and tried to say i needed one, thankfully I was seen from another Dr that same evening who was much more patient and I ended up having a healthy vaginal delivery. Ended up going back to the hospital for help with nursing, met 3 girls that all delivered same evening as myself, Dr Akerman gave every single one of them C-sections!
