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.

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.
