Patient Comments (1)
in New York, NY |
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
