I guess the dichotomy of waiting longer to see the doctor is that my Dr. is very thorough and detailed in my care, and if I have to wait a little longer to see him for that, I prefer that.

Had another great visit with Dr. Ronald Ackermann who is an exceptional problem solver, with keen analytical skills, and deep medical knowledge on a wide range of fields. He is highly professional and efficient -- yet modest, down to earth, and easy to talk with. I like how he uses evidence-based medicine, but is also sharply intuitive, and willing to think outside the box in synthesizing all relevant data -- in building an ideal treatment plan. He is also very courteous, listens well, and values what I say. Adept at both the art and science of medicine, he genuinely cares about the patient, and you know he will go to bat for you. I am thankful and really grateful he is my doctor.
