Ackerman Cancer Center The staff here are very friendly and knowledgeable. They are a complete care facility including a dietician and social workers, and have 8 MDs and 2 FNP-BCs on staff. I have been treated here twice, 2004 for testicular cancer and just finished the program for prostate cancer. In addition, Dr. Ackerman has Ackerman Urology Center nearby (for both sexes) which is where I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I highly recommend both facilities.

We feel very blessed to have been referred to Ackerman Cancer Center. From the very first phone call their attentiveness and concern for making us comfortable with the entire process was very evident. Over the next few weeks of receiving radiation treatments, always followed by time with the nurses and/or any one of the doctors or other staff we realized the attention we got on that initial phone call was just a glimpse of the attention, compassion and concern for our health and well-being that all of these wonderful doctors, nurses, technicians and office staff provide 100% of the time! Everyone shows great concern to make sure your questions are answered and that you are comfortable with the program and you never feel like you are ‘just another patient’. Excellence and compassion are just two words I would use to describe Ackerman Cancer Center. We truly believe God directed us to Dr. Ackerman and his wonderful staff! Jim & Charlona Stewart

I cannot say enough kind words about Dr Ackerman and his staff. They are very professional, comforting and compassionate. I appreciated the candid conversations we had about what was coming down the line in treatment and how they responded to the issues. It was not an easy road however, my family and I never felt like we were left alone.

The doctors, proton radiation technicians and other staff (dietician, social worker) work together to place one at ease, reassured treatment will work, is working, and competency and care prevail. What began as an exercise in anxiety evolved into an experience of awe and real hope of recovery. Hard to say enough good things about the Ackerman Group. Don Johnson 11/15/19 through 1/18/20.

If you want "Service With a Smile", then go to the Ackerman Cancer Center for treatment. Dr. Ackerman is an expert in the field and very personable. ALL of his staff are friendly, competent, caring and highly supportive of patients as they traverse through their process of cancer treatments. They get at big "Thumbs Up" from me.
