Need a second opinion?

Many patients come to see Dr. Ackerman for a second opinion about proceeding with a recommended surgery, or to address concerns about a suboptimal recovery from surgery. Some patients simply want to confirm a diagnosis or ask further questions.

We believe doctors should never try to prevent you from getting a second opinion. Instead, they should encourage it.

Dr. Ackerman focuses on communication, building trust, and thoroughly explaining treatment options.
