If I could leave minus stars, I would! He operated on my mother. When she was transferred to Penn, he told her that she would be home in two weeks. NOT SO! She was there for TWO MONTHS and then passed away. He did his surgery, then pretty much let his nurse Carol take charge and run the show. Penn is an absolute hell hole and I would NEVER recommend this surgeon or this hospital. My father wanted to pursue a law suit, but in the end, we didn't because it just prolonged the pain. Stay away!

I wanred to personally thank Dr. Acker for the awesome, lifesaving / changing mitral valve repair surgery he performed for me in early Jume ( 2017 ). I knew from the moment I met him that Iwas in the best hands possible ! Even though I am still recovering, I feel ten (10x) better and 20 years younger. Thank you once again Dr. Acker and may God bless you and allow you to continue to save/change lives for years to come!
