Dr. Akerman is very professional and accomodating. I was in and out of the office very quickly for an ingrown toenail removal. I felt completely comfortable the whole time, despite my nervousness.

Dr. Akerman and staff are amazing. I had two lapiplasty surgeries this year and both were successful and I’m very happy with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Akerman as well as the lapiplasty procedure itself. I can’t wait for sandal season next year!

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.
