Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Dr Ackerman is the best, treats me like a patient in need of care, not just a number walking in. He goes above to help me understand all my treatment options. Highly recommend this practice. Every Dr here has done right by me.

Dr. Acker performed surgery on my left shoulder two years ago, and I have been satisfied with his work. He has recently performed surgery on my right shoulder, and I'm entering the physical therapy phase. I am so satisfied that I would recommend him to family and friends.

I switched to Dr. Acker from another orthopedic specialist because I was looking for a doc who had a better bedside manner (not arrogant, not pushy, explained things). I hit the jackpot! Dr. Acker took his time to explain my situation, my options, and prognosis. Surgery was schedule promptly, and my only wish is that I would have found him sooner. Meniscus tear pain GONE in less than 2 weeks post surgery! Highly recommend.

Dr. Acker Gave me a total knee replacement a few years ago on my right knee. I had 90% movement recovery. Going to get left knee soon. He does not operate until necessary. He listens to me.,takes ex rays and tells me the truth.
