I had a virtual visit. The quality was good. Dr. Akerman explained what was going on, we discussed medications, and what to expect in the next few months. He addressed all my questions. I appreciate all that he has done for me and especially having the virtual visit during this COVID 19 time.

Dr. Akerman is the best! I have cancer and was sent to him by my oncologist as a BRCA2 patient. He did my colonoscopy and endoscopic ultrasound as preventative measures. I was then in the hospital for pancreatitis and was so happy to the the hospital I had my own GI team! They have seen me through all sorts of things and have been wonderful!

I had my first preventative colonoscopy last week since I recently turned 50. Dr. Akerman has an excellent reputation, not only from other patients of his but amongst the medical community so I was confident in my choice of GI doctors. When I met him before the procedure, he was friendly, informative and knowledgable. I had quick results and follow-up. I highly recommend this physician.

Dr. Ackerman office staff was very pleasant to work with and Making sure I was as comfortable as possible during my short wait. Once I discussed my problems I was having with Dr. Ackerman and the procedures I needed to have preformed it was easily understood by the was he explained it. ( I never had a doctor explain anything that was that easily understood) He and all questions and concerns I had and pleased to do so that I could be at ease with what was going to be done. I had 4 people who have had digestive issues all say use Dr. Ackerman ! On another note my WIFE uses him and she is doing 100 times better than before!

Dr. Akerman moved his practice and I was about 5-10 minutes late (but called and let them know), and he was extremely rude, abrupt, unprofessional, and recommended further testing at Medical City Hospital but said he didn't have time to explain. He also recommended an MRI without checking my records to find out I had already had one less than a year for same problem. His medical assistant was very rude when I called to inquire about sending me to an unnecessary exam. I will never go to this physician again. I also wrote a complaint to the administration of his practice.

Dr. Akerman's approach to a set of serious issues has demonstrated not only his first-rate medical expertise but also a down-to-earth, common sense approach to helping his patients. Everything you would want in a doctor and more. I highly recommend him. His office staff is not only professional but accommodating as well - a great practice all around.

Dr. Ackerman should be rated "EWQ, exceptionally well qualified", his patient manner and caring are outstanding. He is a doctor that after talking with him you do not need a second opinion. One of the best doctors I have had the pleasure of being treated by.
