    I was very happy with Dr Ackerman until I discovered I was misdiagnosed with short bowel syndrome which I don't have. No tests were done. Given all sorts of medication but problem persisted. Finally was told to go to U of P and get shots as he couldn't do anything more for me. He did not refer me to anyone or even tell me where to call. I called him several times but he did not call me back. Did call U of P and finally found a dr who is managing my symptoms without shots. This dr let me down.

    Outstanding bedside manner. He made my father feel like he was his only patient.
