I have been trying to find a doctor that would do Proton radiation on brain and bone mets because it has less to basically no side effects and to my surprise Dr. Ackerman could do it with no issues. I live in Florida and called every Proton Radiation Center in the state and was turned away but not by Dr. Ackerman. His demeanor is very positive including he has a top notch staff. I consider finding this doctor and group a miracle and will be coming only to them for radiation.

Dr. Ackerman & all of his team saved my husband's life & he was VERY COMFORTABLE throughout the entire process. It's a One-Stop Shop place for various forms of cancers & they worked around our schedule, whether it be 6:30 a.m. or 9:30 p.m., they took GREAT care of Bob. No side effects except 2 nites of waking up with warm ear lobes. They only treated the cancerous spots because they have Proton machines. So side effects were almost non-existent. Their employees became like a loving family.

Outstanding care. Really, I expect good care when I go to a doctor, but this place went beyond expectations. Ackerman himself is excellent--smart, caring, a good guy with a good sense of humor. The whole team is top notch. I was worried about my health when I first walked in, but I quickly developed confidence in the care I was and would be getting. I never felt like just another patient. It meant a lot, and I'm grateful for it.
