Best Orthopedic Surgeon

10 years ago I had rotator cuff repair on my left shoulder by a different surgeon. It was very painful and a horrible experience. Now I tore my right rotator cuff and was referred to Dr Ackerman. It was a great experience and I had virtually no pain. I would highly recommend him and his staff. He made me feel like a VIP during the whole process.

Highly Recommend!

Dr. Ackerman, his assistant Jeneva, his staff and associated Physical Therapy group are outstanding. I had a complete knee quadriceps tendon rupture almost a year ago and Dr. Ackerman's surgery and care have been exemplary. Although this is a disabling injury with a prolonged recovery period, I am well on my way now.
