I met Dr Ackerman once before as Dr Ackerman operated on my wife's knee which was a perfect success and painless after surgery. He is a pleasure and breath of fresh air to speak with and is quite thorough. I was told 2-1/2 years ago I needed meniscus surgery by another dr and I held off as pain subsided. Dr A agreed that surgery wasn't necessary at this point. He is doing a series of 3 injections at most for the time being, surgery being a last resort. My wife and I can not speak highly enough

After going to several orthopedists, I found Dr. Ackerman and he spoke to me like a normal person, which apparently isn't a given. He explained my issue, and gave me options to heal. It wasn't a major problem, but I was constantly either dismissed or given the wrong treatment, which made it worse. I'm fine now. I've recommended him to friends and family. He's a very good doctor.

I saw Dr. Ackerman for knee pain. He was very kind, warm and compassionate. After x-rays he diagnosed moderate arthritis. He explained all my options clearly and answered my "million" questions! He spent all the time needed to make sure I was happy. I had some questions a day later and he promptly called me back. The staff at the New York office (where I saw Dr. Ackerman) was also warm and extremely helpful. Also I was seen on time, with no waiting. Needless to say, I recommend him highly
