I Truly Love DR Ackerman Hes A Great Doctor I Recommend Him To Al, My Friends He Truly Cares About His Patients
in West Palm Beach, FL |
Doctor Ackerman is a TERRIABLE DOCTOR!!! DO NOT GO TO HIM FOR YOUR PREGNANCY. He doesn't care about your child or you. He rushes to give C sections. 1) He induced me with OUT my consent. At no time did I agree to receive oxytocin, 2) I sat in the hospital room all day. How many times did I see him? 1 and that was when they told me my baby was coming. While I was thinking about the c section he said i needed he was rude and bascially told me my baby would die if I didnt do it now
West Palm Beach, FL |
The nurses are rude and cold and they do not call you back. Very poor professional care in my opinion.
Lake Worth, FL |
He is very nice until it comes to the delivery. He cares more about his schedule then the patient and baby. He insulted my intelligence when I mentioned my concerns about being induced, wanted to break my water when I was only 2 cm dilated, delivered my placenta as if he was a butcher and there's more but I cant add the whole experience due to character count... I would never step foot in his office again! Do yourself a favor and go find another OB.
Our practice truly values your feedback, and we are sorry to hear about this experience. Please contact our practice manager at 561-795-2400 so that we may work to make the situation better. Thank you.

Dr. Ackerman cares about the health and personal experience of each of his patients. This is my second pregnancy in which he has been my OB and I would have it any other way. He does his best to create a relationship with each client even going as far as giving out a cell phone number for you to text him whenever you have questions or any concerns throughout your pregnancy he is just one click away.

He is an amazing doctor. Very kind a thorough.
West Palm Beach, FL |
Truly the worst experience I have ever had at an OBGYN or any doctor's office for that matter. Dr. Ackerman took no time to address my concerns (I'm not kidding, he sat down with me for less than 1 minute) before kicking me out of his office. Seriously, I highly recommend that no one ever chooses to come to his office unless they want to waste their time and leave feeling disrespected. DO NOT CHOOSE HIM AS YOUR DOCTOR!

Wonderful bedside manner. Puts you at ease.

I have been seeing Dr Ackerman for over 3 yrs. He's very thorough and honest. It doesn't take long to realize that he's there for you, not the other way around. He's so engaging that he puts you at ease. He has a fantastic staff. His father also works at the same office, so it's more like a family taking care of you.
in West Palm Beach, FL |
I have been going to him as a doctor for a few years and recently he delivered my first child. He put my husband and I at ease when i was upset finding out that i needed a C-section. He came out and met the family in the hospital and even allowed my husband to join him and pray during the circumcision of our son! He is a caring doctor. Makes you feel comfortable with his personality and bedside manor. His nurse Lisa and the office staff in west palm beach are also very nice and welcoming.

Arrogant, unprofessional, careless doctor. He rushes though the exams, does not pay attention to details, does not care about your concerns or suggestions and as a result women miscarriage. Had very bad experience and do not recommend him to anyone. Stay away!!!
Royal Palm Beach, FL |
Clean office. ac
Dr. Joshua Ackerman is a in and out Dr. He shows no concern in the well being of my unborn. He sarcastically answers questions an concerns and never give me a confident answer. This is my first pregnancy and so far the worse Dr. Expierence I've had between OB's
in clewiston |
There will never be enough words to express the gratitude I have for Dr. Ackerman. He has been one of the most attentive and caring physicians. Always knowledgeable, honest, and compassionate. I credit him single handedly with my ability to conceive, carry my child, and stay sane during the process. It's rare to find a doctor that is so involved and present. I wish I had more words... simply put he is among the best.
