Dr. Ackermann is an amazing physician and one of the best in the city, if not the country overall. Dr. Ackermann provides a thorough examination with realistic goals and recommendations that are understandable at the patient level. Most importantly, Dr. Ackermann listens to me and allows me to explain my symptoms in a conversational manner. This allows me (the patient) to feel more at ease and open up about my/their symptoms. I would recommend Dr. Ackermann to any and everyone looking for a new primary care physician.
