Dr. Acker is just the best! He is a talented and empathetic surgeon and physician. He explained any procedures and options to me (I had a torn rotator cuff and at another time, a torn meniscus.) His caring manner, skills, and willingness to help me make the best decisions for my care, enabled me to have confidence not only in him, but in myself. When facing any kind of surgery or other options, I have complete trust in his advice and skills! THANK YOU DR. ACKER !!! - you are amazing!

Excellent Orthopedic surgeon! Takes all the time you need before coming up with potential solutions to your injury or injuries. Operated on my knees and my knees were a mess with arthritis. After the surgeries I improved considerably. In time I will have to get total knee replacement and Dr. Acker is the surgeon I will go to once again. Great doctor who really acres about his patients A+

The staff at Dr. Ackers office are very rude and cold. They made it seem like an inconvenience that I asked a question and were really snappy with their answers. In addition, when we called a few days after surgery for pain med refill, the on call Dr told us to just go to the emergency room and actually hung up on us!!! I am extremely disappointed and would not recommend Dr Acker to anyone.
