Patient | March 14, 2017

They are pretty good providers, and wouldn't change doctors for anything, although we travel far, far, away 3 hours?
Patient | February 16, 2017

Dr. Acra was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. I was especially pleased that he gave us some natural suggestion for relief as opposed to adding more medication for our child.
Patient | February 16, 2017

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.
