    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!

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
