    I would not recommend. She did surgery on my foot for bunion. That was all i wanted... after surgery I found out she cut the end of toes off which caused nerves being hung up in bone. Severe pain , could not walk. After trying to correct her mess I have a ruined foot. Can’t walk good and a lot of pain. Do not let her do surgery on your foot! My word of advice check with orthopedic foot Doctor.

    My son had to have a toenail removed, the staff took time to explain everything. Dr Akerman level of care removed all his fears, and he was so relieved to finally be pain free.

    Dr, Akerman came in and listened to me even after reading the notes in my chart, She took her time in explaining to me the procedure she was going to do and then asked if I had any questions. During the procedure she checked on me to make sure I was doing okay. Spoke very clearly about after care and asked if there were questions for that as well. Very professional but also very personable. Great bed side manners!!!
