I have to admit that after being with my usual doctor for many years, I was very nervous about seeing someone new even if just for a consult and a procedure.

At my appointment, Dr. Akerman listened to my history, reviewed my medical records, and agreed the procedure was needed. He explained everything he would do and answered all my questions. His assistant took care of scheduling and in fact he was available to do the procedure sooner than my schedule allowed but I appreciate knowing that there would not have been any wait at all if needed. At the hospital, everyone was exceptionally kind and took very good care of me. The staff also commented that both my treating doctor and Dr. Akerman were the best around and I was in good hands. My procedure went fine and Dr. Akerman came to speak to my husband right afterwards and again to speak with me after I woke up. I received my test results just a couple of days later through the portal and Dr. Akerman also replied the same day with a follow up question I asked.
