I have been having issues with my digestive system for quite some time. I finally decided to see a specialist and Dr. Akerman was phenomenal. He was extremely kind, respectful, and knowledgeable. He took the time to hear my concerns and provided feedback or inputs, giving me the peace of mind I needed by making me feel I was taken care of. I will definitively recommend him. Thank you Dr. Akerman.

My wife was at med center of Plano for 4 days for liver issues. We just got home today after dr Ackerman performed what we consider a “life saving” procedure on my wife! We are eternally grateful to dr Ackerman for performing so well and allowing my wife a chance to “live” again! She has had a complete turnaround from where she was when we admitted her tks to dr ackermans skills. His positive and upbeat and caring attitude during my wife’s hospital stay really helped our confidence and stress level! GOD bless him and dr Weismann and dr Malik for helping my family thru this ordeal! My wife is still sick, but able to function as normal as a liver disease will allow tks to dr Ackerman!
