Dr. Ackerman was extremely rude and dismissive...so much so that I came home crying. I have never had such a bad experience. You'd think that someone who chooses a profession that involves caring for the physical well-being of a person would be just as concerned about their psychological well-being. What a bad choice of profession!
Worst bedside manner ever

This was hands down my worst experience with a physician ever. He was rude, dismissive and unprofessional. He refused to address my issues and just kept complaining about how I was late, which I was not. I really can't believe he is a trained physician and if you are at ucla try to see one of the other doctors.

He was hands down the worst physician that I had ever interacted with. I saw him at the student health center at UCLA, where I typically interact with wonderful, committed health professionals, and he spent the first five minutes of the consultation chewing me out because I had to rescheduled my appointment. It completely unnerved me to be chewed out by a physician when I was already seeing him about what could have been a life-threatening condition. It was just horrible. He should be fired. He was cold and stand-offish. Moreover, he did not seem to know where to refer me and so not only was he discourteous, unprofessional, and inappropriate, he did not make up for it by is ability to diagnose or deliver service. Just horrible.

Dr. Ackerman was rude and uncaring. He gestured in an insulting way right before the visit and afterwards. He called me on my personal phone without announcing himself, and his first phrase was "you have an appointment," followed by a silence until I asked "who is this?" This guy is creepy and cold. I wouldn't recommend to deal with him in any way, let alone for a doctor's appointment.
Dr Ackerman cares about his patients.

My total experience with Dr. Ackerman was a very pleasant one. He answered my questions and "listened to my concerns" After my appointment, he kept in contact with me via email to stay updated on my progress. I saw him at the Arthur Ashe Center on the UCLA campus. I really feel like he cares about my wellness and I am grateful for that.
