Grateful to have found Ackerman Cancer Center

I received my diagnosis and surgery elsewhere--but couldn't get good answers on treatment options. Very, very glad I did the work to get other opinions and arrived at proton therapy with all its advantages. But the real advantage of Ackerman is the complete seamless program of care-- down to chocolate chip cookies in the waiting areas--and the incredible staff, seamless including financial, scheduling, social work, dietary-- all in very soothing surroundings.

Ackerman cancer center what can I say?, the staff is AMAZING in every way! From the friendly welcome at the door, those gals I adore! To the radiation specialists what a team they make fighting cancer a dream, from there friendly smiles to there loving ways, I know I’ll make it I’m here to stay. To the Dr’s and Nurse Practitioners, who have made my plan, God gave you smarts to know what to do right from the start! The social workers are great and can’t be beat, as they do it all to help me stay on my feet! I thank you all from the bottom of my heart because without your love and care I couldn’t share this poem of gratitude from ME to YOU!

Patient - Head and Neck Cancer

Dr. Ackerman is very informative - he explained exactly what he had planned for the treatment process - 35 sessions. The treatment worked exactly as planned.. He has assembled an outstanding staff to operate the equipment and provide other consulting services, such as Nutrition, and weekly status reviews. Everyone that I came in contact with was very professional, capable, pleasant and caring. The staff created an atmosphere of confidence that this rather scary problem could be solved. In other words, they provided Hope for those of us who were dealing with this for the first time. The Proton Beam treatment concluded on December 13, 2017 and we are now in the follow-up phase. Highest marks for the entire staff!

Progressive Cancer Center

I found Dr. Ackerman to be highly progressive in his knowledge about prostate cancer. There are only 25 centers in the U.S. that offer proton radiation therapy. The Ackerman Cancer Center is the only physician run center in the country. If you're facing a cancer treatment decision, please meet with the fine staff at Ackerman and learn about your options.
