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.

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!!

Dr Akerman is the reason I have 4 wonderful children. I was told I couldn't have kids because of a fibroid I had in my uterus. After getting 3 separate opinions, I was told to visit Dr Akerman. He was able to take out my fibroid and today I have 4 beautiful children that he delivered :).

AkermanMed's team wants patients have a healthy and happy pregnancy.
Our professional doctors and staff will monitor your baby's development and do routine testing to help find and prevent possible problems before, after and during your pregnancy.
For your convenience, an Ultrasound Technician is also part of our team and each facility has two State-Of-The-Arts ultrasounds to monitor babies' development.
Up to the third trimester patients are seen at our office every 4 weeks. Atfer that, office visits are scheduled every 2-3 weeks, and during the last month once a week. However, each patient receives individualized care and the schedule can vary on case by case basis.
Dr Akerman is the Chair of the OBGYN Department at St Joseph Hospital in Orange (St Joseph Hospital has a privileged location across the street from CHOC which guarantees immediate care for babies at a children's hospital if needed). Patients can also deliver at HOAG Newport and OCGMG Santa Ana.
The weeks after birth are very important for patients and their infant.
Patients are seen at least once after they deliver: 2 weeks after c-section; 6 weeks after vaginal delivery -visits are tailored to patients' needs.
Physical recovery, emotional assessment and contraception are part of this important visit.

Dr Akerman has always been interested in infertility. Before his residency, he did research at Cornell in New York City and since then it has been one of his areas of interest.
Our providers help patients who want to have a baby and have
been trying to conceive after 12 months or more of unprotected intercourse without results.
We counsel and monitor patients who want to have a baby. Artificial insemination can be one of the options that patients can try in our office before considering other options like IVF*, donor treatment or surrogacy*.
We also assist and accompany surrogate mothers.
*Ask our staff about our IVF and surrogate agency partners in CA, Mexico and Colombia.
"As a physician my goal has always been to have healthy and happy patients. OB/GYN is a specialty that allows me to provide healthcare -that most of the time- results in happiness and health.
After more of a decade in practice, I have come to realize that my support during the mature life of women could go a step further and I decided to accept their challenge and to expand my services to help them feel more comfortable within their bodies. "
