The man that brought all THREE of our babies into this world! Not one of them made his job easy or did what they were supposed to do. We woke him up in the middle of the night, needed him when he wasn't on call, and took up the time he could have been spending with his family. We are SO thankful and grateful for his dedication to his work and for all the times he made us laugh even when the situation wasn't funny.

Dr Lao is "Super nice! This is my first pregnancy and I transferred over, honestly wish I had her as my doctors from the start! I feel so comfortable during our visits! Staff is friendly as well!"

Vicki is an incredible midwife with Dr Akerman's practice. (...) She encouraged me throughout my pregnancy and gave excellent advice and resources to support my desire to have an unmedicated birth using hypnobirthing techniques...Vicki was so supportive at every visit and she assured me that my plan for a birth without medical interventions was absolutely possible. Her positive energy during the labor and delivery assured me that I was doing exactly what I needed to do. She provided top-notch postpartum care.. I felt so empowered by this birth and I am forever deeply grateful for Vicki's support of my positive experience" Jessica P. on Yelp
Best Doctor ever! Dr Akerman and Debbie are the best of the best. They are so welcoming. They made me feel so comfortable. I'm pregnant with my second child and Dr. Akerman is my Doctor again. I wouldn't ask for another! I'm truly blessed to have this doctor again. I mostly see Debbie, i love her! Her personality is the best! She guessed the weight of my first child and she got it on the point. Shows how much they pay attention to their pregnant mothers... love them both!!
