Dr Ackerman may be a good doctor, but the office staff person in charge of sending medical records is most user-unfriendly; both weeks I've called, in trying to get records sent. There seems to be many roadblocks to getting records sent, including a $25 charge and a 30 - day waiting period. A very unfriendly conversation :-( both weeks of trying.

Does not have a system to contact if you have an eye problem..only answering machine. Would not go to him if you have a possibility of having an eye problem after hours on on a weekend.
