Patient Comments (5)
Harrisville, RI |
Dr. Ackerman is a wonderful doctor. She is always kind and considerate. She explains things in details, and is open to listening to concerns and ideas of the patients. Her office is very nice and clean. She also has an amazing staff. My husband and I have been patients of hers for 6 years. We are very happy with Dr. Ackerman!
in Pascoag, RI |
She insisted on check ups every 6 weeks to see how a medication was affecting me, even if I was fine. It's impossible to get in contact with her. I've been trying to schedule an appointment for weeks now and it has been telephone tag. They do not answer the phone during the hours that they say they are there. I have had problems and questions in the past and feel like she is not paying attention. She does not like being questioned. I'll still be trying to talk to her as and she'll be walking out
I recommend Dr. Ackerman to all my family and friends! She is a kind,easy to talk to and thorough. When she is in the exam room, I feel as though I am her only patient. She takes her time to listen to her patients. The wait time is longer than desirable and I often feel that I am waiting a while after my appointment time to be seen, but the level of her care is rare to find.
in Lincoln ri |
She helped me figure out two major health issues that my previous Doctor looked right past. She treated me with respect and I'm a healthier me thanks to her.

Unknowledgeable, condescending, lack of communication
