Patient Reviews

Dr. Ackerman was both professional and friendly. Explained details in an easy to understand manner. Excellent experience!

Dr. Ackerman is a talented, caring, and extremely skilled physician. He performed my LASIK surgery and I have been so happy with the results. He was very easy to work with, and communicated with me every step of the way. He made sure the process was easy for me to understand. I would trust him to take care of my family, and would recommend him to anyone looking for high-quality care.

It’s a shame Google will only allow me to give Dr. Ackerman 5 stars… I feel like he’s being cheated. The guy is brilliant and is very personable. After my LASIK surgery, I was seeing 20/15 after a 2 hour nap – with no pain or dryness. I have to remember to take my drops because my eyes feel totally normal. Eyesight is extremely important; I recommend you entrust it to Dr. Ackerman.
