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.
Thank you, Mr. Ari! We are so glad to hear you felt that way while at our office.

Dr. Ackerman and staff were the best! They were all very caring and made me feel comfortable. If I had any questions or concerned they were patiently addressed. I would highly recommend to all who have the need.
Thank you, Ms. Bates, and congratulations on finishing treatment.

Although about half my visits were with Dr Perkins as well I give both 5 stars. I felt very comfortable with the prescribed radiation and follow up treatment
