Great Doctor

I met Dr Ackerman once before as Dr Ackerman operated on my wife's knee which was a perfect success and painless after surgery. He is a pleasure and breath of fresh air to speak with and is quite thorough. I was told 2-1/2 years ago I needed meniscus surgery by another dr and I held off as pain subsided. Dr A agreed that surgery wasn't necessary at this point. He is doing a series of 3 injections at most for the time being, surgery being a last resort. My wife and I can not speak highly enough of him. Strongly recommend Dr A ... Thank you Dr Ackerman ....

Excellent Doctor

Dr. Ackerman is a true professional. He is not quick to jump to surgery and spends time talking to the patient and explaining all options. He is patient and very kind, but most important honest. Where another orthopedic surgeon said I might need a shoulder replacement, Dr. Ackerman said I didn't need surgery for a fractured shoulder and with therapy I was able to get almost full mobility. I dreaded having surgery and I was happy he gave me the good news. I would highly recommend Dr. Ackerman, a true professional.
