Dr. Ackerman is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to explain things. He is respectful, courteous, & understanding. He views patients as a whole and devises a plan of care that respects the entire person (their physical, emotional, psychological, & their lives (& life's impact on one). He is compassionate, sincere, understanding, and caring. He possesses an excellent bedside manner. He does what is in the patients' best interest. I have recommended him to my family & friends.

Dr. Ackerman is the best doctor I've ever been to and I have sent friends there who've had good experiences with him as well. He's really nice and friendly and was able to treat an issue I had for 2 years that no one else could treat.

A wonderful and caring Doctor. Always fits me in last minute when I am sick. Never feel rushed and easy to feel comfortable speaking to the doctor!

I would not recommend dr. Ackerman. His office is impossible to deal with , they don't answer the phones , and don't return messages .i needed a prior authorization on my medication and called several times and the doctor didnt take care of it! I finally emailed him and he wrote back, it's not heart medication, don't harass me. I gave him the benefit of the doubt , but he did it again. The second time he wrote, it will be taken care of, but it was not done in a timely fashion.

Impossible to deal with the front office here. In waiting for a call back from this doctor u can forget it. Will certainly be moving on, not that they care believe me!!

Horrible Doctor! After some research and the ratings on this site I sent my father here (he visited him twice).. The man does not know how to talk to his patients. He talks down to his patients and is simply rude. If you are looking for a good doctor for yourself or anyone that you love...spare yourself from the pain and don't waste yourf time. DO NOT GO TO HIM! EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED. #WORSTDOCTOREXPERIENCE
