Dr Ackerman is probably one of the best physician's I have ever seen. She is very thorough, personable, takes the time to really listen and answer questions. She truly cares about her patients and takes as much time as necessary in order to treat them as a person, not just a number. I do not have enough good things to say about her and her staff.
I had been having trouble with my birth control which I was given by another doctor when I started struggling with irregular menstrual cycles which came on when I started running harder in high school. The birth control my doctor gave me made me feel awful and it was making me sick. I even eventually started having seizures and my doctor did not believe me when I told him I was struggling with the medication he had prescribed. A friend of mine told me to go see Dr. Ackerman asap. It was the best medical decision I've ever made and after one visit Dr. Ackerman not only had me on a different medication that worked like a dream but she also called me to check up on me for months after I had seen her. I am so grateful and can't thank her enough. I love Dr. Ackerman and recommend not only my athlete friends but any young men or women I know who need a doctor because I trust her so much!
I saw Dr. Ackerman for my patellar tendinitis. I had seen other doctors who simply told me not to run for a year and quickly ushered me out of the office because I wasn't a surgical candidate. Dr. Ackerman spent significant time with me and appreciated my needs for a speedy recovery and full function. She sent me to the right PT, referred me to another specialist at Children's for an injection, , and still wanted to follow up to make sure my recovery was on course.
