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!
