Dr. Akkerman is great--she is warm and smart, and she is a good listener. She is willing to troubleshoot tricky problems and is great at explaining her thinking of what needs to be done. She is the antithesis of the arrogantand dismissive doctors that somehow still manage to practice. I recommend her highly!!

Although Dr. Akkerman referred me to another specialist as my problem wasn't her area of expertise she was still able to offer advise and some helpful tips. She gave her honest opinion. I was actually a little sad that I wouldn't be seeing her again because she was so friendly.

Dr Akkerman is really great but the actual practice and how they set pricing leaves a lot to be desired. After paying a large amount for custom orthotics I was charged an additional copay just to come into the office andpick them up for 2mins. The practice has the option whether to charge that activity as an office visit and I think it is ridiculous to do so and take advantage of people. Now if my orthotics need to be adjusted I need to pay another copay to return them to the doctor and then another copay to pick them up again. Surely this disincentivizes people to seek medical assistance.
