Very Impressed, Dr, Staff, all around
I was referred to Dr Ackerman by GP, who said thats who he uses. I was very impressed by the whole experience. Knowledgable, down to earth, easy to understand, efficient. The staff was all very freindly and helpful. Sometimes the staff at Drs offices can be surly or rushed, not here. Very Welcome.

Dr. Akerman has an extremely caring and friendly attitude and is an essential member to have on the team for people fighting cancer. He is thorough, takes time to answer all the questions as well as is prompt in responding to follow ups. His outgoing and positive personality was helpful to me while undergoing the treatments.

Dr. Akerman was easy to talk to and very professional. I was looking for a GI and he was recommended. I couldn't be happier to have him as my doctor moving forward.

I went to see Dr Akerman after my daughter switched from her old GI. She loved him, his manner and thoroughness and I found that to be true as well. A doctor that calls you personally after your colonoscopy to check on you is a find in my book!!

Awesome dr
I’ve been with Dr A for almost a year. He addresses my concerns and when I’ve been resistant to treatment he has listened to me and gone above and beyond to make sure I’m doing the right thing for my Crohn’s. He’s accessible and laid back and a nice guy. I’m lucky to have in my corner.

Dr. Akerman was communicative with my wife and I prior to the procedure (going over the procedure, what was going to happen, what he was going to do), and after the procedure (explaining the results and answering all our questions). His office was very professional and efficient in setting up the appointment for the procedure.
