She's the best doctor I've ever been to. I refuse to go anywhere else.
Outstanding, caring doctor, long wait times but worth it.
Self-verified patient of Dr. Viviane B Ackad - Posted on April 7th, 2012
I travel from Jersey City to see Dr. Ackad. She's very caring, almost always accessibleher office number forwards to her cellphone when she's not in, and she will transmit prescriptions & referrals without having to go see her every single time you need something (within reason). Her advice is practical & sound, such as avoiding salt when dealing with joint pain, avoiding sweets when trying to lose weight, and drinking plenty of nutritious fluids when nursing. Her office staff is good, pleasant and efficient. The wait time varies from 5-45 minutes depending on what time of day you go to see her. Some of her patients are very sick or very low-income, but the waiting room is kept quite clean though a little small.
