Dr. might be having a meltdown.

I have been Dr. Ackerman's patient for several years and I believe there is never a reason to yell at a patient - imply that she is stupid and disregard her need for care. How his wife "emerged" when I tried to secure an appointment is beyond me. Does she work at Pro Health? I tried to secure an appointment and was rudely hung up on, only to be told by the doctor himself and I quote, "That was my wife!" indicating in his voice his annoyance with me. This is really too much to deal with when I have lump in my neck. Seeking another physician, hope you do the same.

great internist

Dr. Ackeman is a great internist. I've not experienced some of the things people complained about. It is a busy office and I know they work hard to stay on time for the patients. He is a wonderful physician and I would give him a try.

You can do better

Originally went to him because of all the good reviews but was disappointed after a few different appts. I thought after the first one I would give him another chance or so to see if he was just having an off day, but nope the same thing at each of the visits. He's okay if you have a cold but anything more I'd go some place else. I went there with pain and he just said to wait a few days and get some blood work. I decided to listen to a friend and go to the hospital. I ended up getting surgery. He never bothered to call or ask what happened or how I was doing. When I was there I always felt like I was rushed through the visit and was annoying him by asking any questions. He never really listened to my symptoms and just hurried up and gave my a script. Too many other Drs out there to deal with this.
