Jill Ackerman is my favorite doctor - excellent patient care, diagnoses, followup. Had an eye emergency last weekend, and even on holiday week she was caring enough when notified by ER MD to call me next day to inquire after giving other MD explicit directions for my care. It doesn;t get any better than this!
