I have been a long time patient of Dr. Acker's - for over 30 years! No time during those years has he been anything but professionally astute - stays on top of his game; compassionate; good listener; a man of integrity, honor and he will do whatever it takes to get to the root cause of my health issues. He is a pharmacist also so he is outstanding at prescribing the correct medications that work well together. Not only is he an outstanding doctor, he is also an outstanding human being.!

Dr. Acker is what doctors should all be like: He is caring, compassionate, takes his time with each patient. He makes you feel like you are his ONLY concern. He listens and asks questions to make sure he has an accurate picture of the problem. He uses common sense in his approach to treatment. He is not a pill pusher. He's the BEST!!! He has been my doctor for over 25 years!
