dr Ackenbom is wonderful and is really trying to help me.

I just have to say the Dr. Achenbom is one of the most caring, most knowledgeable doctors that I have ever met. I never feel rushed when I see her. She takes her time and answers my questions. She performed surgery on me recently and she called me the next day to check on me and then she called me 2 weeks later during my recovery to see how I was doing. I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs a specialist for urology/gynecology. And also during the last few months I've had to call the nurse line with questions and concerns; I am ALWAYS called back in a timely manner. Wonderful doctor, wonderful staff!

Dr. Ackenbom saved my life . When I went to her I was misdiagnosed and mistreated by a different doctor for 10 years . I lost all hope . I was clinically depressed and in pain 24/7 . She and Dr. Donellen correctly diagnosed me and treated me . Dr. Ackenbom is so caring and compassionate and honestly the best doctor I have ever seen . She takes time to explain everything and not only helped me physically but emotionally as well . I truly feel that she became a doctor because she cares and wants to make a difference. This shows in every appointment. She listens and it never seems rushed . She actually cares .
