I was very pleased with my experience with Dr. Van Akers. I have a new diagnosis of psoriatic arthritis and she was informed, had recently attended a multi-disciplinary conference on the topic and was able to provide me with expertise and direction. I'm happy we have her in our area!

I would not only recommend Dr. Van Acker, I already have shared my positive experience with two friends. Dr. Van Acker was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and kind to both me and her assistant. She took the time to get to know me as a person. Her energy and passion for her profession made me glad that she is my new dermatologist. Dr. Van Acker asked questions, listened, and explained what she was doing, preparing me mentally and physically throughout my exam. She shared information as she preformed the exam. She recommended products, and when the doctor left the room, her assistant found the website on her computer to show me the spf misting sunscreen that Dr. Van Acker uses over her makeup. At the end of my enjoyable time with Dr. Van Acker, she discussed possible follow up appointments for the Fall. Her assistant scheduled my appointment before I left the room! I look forward to my next appointment! Her positive energy made me feel so happy to be there!

She was clear, helpful, and asked if I had questions. Forefront Derm has always been punctual and on time since I’ve been a patient there. Very little wait time in the waiting area and in the room before the doc comes in. I have also seen good results from their treatment plan. Two thumbs up!

Dr. Van Acker was very professional in evaluating me for any possible skin cancer issues. I also had concerns about a small rash and she prescribed an ointment for this condition which should alleviate the problem. I would highly recommend her for any dermatology issues.

As a retired person, who has worked in the medical field for 38 years, this dermatologist, exceeds the expectations of anyone seeking answers to problems of their skin. She is very personal, listens to your concerns, and provides a plan to follow. Of all the dermatologists, I know in my career, Dr. Van Acker provides a fresh approach to the field of Dermatology, along with caring personally for your individual problems of the skin.

Dr. Van Acker was so friendly, and so professional. I went in for a mole check and felt that she did a great job. I have gone to others who have barely looked at my skin. So it was nice to feel as though she didn't miss anything!

I'm really pleased with my experience. It's not easy replacing a legend like Mitch Rinek but now I see why he was so high on her abilities. Looks like the community has another keeper.

She's wonderful. I'd been a patient of Dr. Rinek for 60 years. I was reluctant to have a new doctor. That is no longer the case. She is very pleasant, personable, upbeat and comforting. She wanted one of my many moles, which I was more than willing to give her. No cancer. Glad she had it checked. Look forward to returning next year for my next mole check. No more apprehension to return.
