The most RUDE staff I've ever met in my life!!!!!!!! This is the only specialist in Redding? I'm willing to move or drive hours to another Dr. than to come here! That is how HORRIBLE they are!!!!! I wish I could leave NO STARS!!!!!
Dr. Akman doesn't trust anyone other than himself. When I came in to receive care, he insisted I cease my current treatment to completely redo every test I had taken prior. At the same labs. Under the same conditions. He runs his Redding practice as if it was Community Service for a crime he committed. He is only available twice a month & rarely is available to field urgent issues, like actually filling the medications he prescribed. He is uneducated about his field & doesn't care about anybody.

The very worst Doctor I have seen in my life! From the moment he walked into the room he was arrogant and rude! He talked with a belittling tone, it was horrible. The entire time I was thinking wow this was a waste of time and money. He did not listen to anything I had to say. He said my primary care doc wasn't treating my illness incorrectly, and he said it snickering like it was funny! I would not take my Dog to see this man! To top off his ridiculous attitude he had a Orange Fake Spray Tan

Dr. Ackman misdiagnosed me, telling me that he was sure that a lump in my neck (discovered by my OBGYN during my pregnancy) was not cancer. He said I could have it removed for vanity purposes but that it was certainly benign. It turned out to be cancer. three years, a complete thyroidectomy and radiation treatments later, I am now treated by an endocrinologist who called ackman's misdiagnosis and lack of concern troubling. His nurse also proved to be Incompetent and rude. Go to Chico!
