A very caring provider. Personally called me with test results very soon after.
Patient | February 9, 2017

He was very nice & interested in my child, but he didn't do anything but push on her stomach. I didn't get any answers & had to ask for more follow up. He seemed unconcerned that she hadn't eaten and kept it in her for over 2 month.

Considering my child's disease is rare, I feel we get very good attention when we see Dr. Acra.

Patient | June 1, 2016

I came in because my child pukes profusely & was told to bring him back at a year nothing was done.
Patient | February 11, 2016

Office didn't seem busy so I was surprised when he didn't sit down to speak with us. Only when he was leaving (5 minutes) did I say I have questions. Then he sat down.
