[Dr. Akerman] is always late to see patients and it is very difficult to make appointments with him. When you do get to see him however, he does not make you feel rushed and is willing to answer all questions...has a lot of years of experience but I am not sure he keeps up with the latest advances in technology and reproductive techniques...I always felt like he has too many patients and is not able to give personalized service for that reason

I had a fibroid that my gyn thought needed to be taken out but Dr. Akerman thought we could at least try and proceed with CC/DI to see if I could get pregnant without a risky surgery first....Dr. Akerman was quite compassionate and gave me a few recommendations for treatment and after thinking over everything I proceeded with one of them.
