Patient Comments (3)

Dr Ackerman has a wonderful way of making a patient feel confident that he is taking good care of you. Comfortable and pleasant, but serious when he needs to be.

Dr. Ackerman got worried if the heart rhythm was lower or real high. He would do test to make sure it was beating ok. Highly recommend Dr. Ackerman if you want a good arrhythmia doctor.

He explained to me what could be wrong with my heart rhythm. When I had a low heart rhythm spell, he got worried and wanted to check me. I get a dizzy spell or something else, he wants to check me. I highly recommend him if your looking for a good electrophysiologist!
