Dr. Akerman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Akerman "I chose to become a doctor after witnessing the compassionate care my grandfather received when he became terminally ill. I approach every patient encounter with the goal to impart the very same compassion and quality care."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Akerman "I am fellowship trained in multiple advanced endoscopy procedures such as ERCP, Endoscopic Ultrasound, Fine Needle Aspiration, Cholangioscopy, and others. After providing care in Bayshore, NY for a few years, my family and I decided to relocate to North Texas.  It is a particular point of enthusiasm for me to be working with other advanced endoscopists in our medical group, in order to increase our availability."
