AkermanMed has provided OBGYN services to women in Orange County since 2005. With multiple office locations (Orange, Santa Ana and now in Irvine) AkermanMed specialists have privileges for surgeries and deliveries at St Joseph Hospital of Orange, HOAG Newport, HOAG Irvine Fudge Family Birthing Suites and OCGMC. Without question, the stellar staff shares the same goal: to provide honest and superior care services to women.

“Patients love our care approach and see AkermanMed providers and staff as family,” says Dr. Akerman. “When it comes to establishing a long-lasting relationship with an OBGYN and caring for their family, they know that they can count on us to always be there.”

AkermanMed stands out for having a collaborative care team of physicians, midwives and nurse practitioners that offer options to women of all ages to make them feel empowered about their health care. They are recognized for excellent clinical outcomes, bedside manners, and patient satisfaction. In addition to English, all specialists speak another language: Spanish, Tagalog, Japanese, Afrikaans and Korean.

With a wide range of services, AkermanMed compassionately supports women through all stages of life. The practice providers: Allan Akerman MD, Stephanie Lao MD, Yoko Suzuki, MD, Midwives Vicki Aphailee, Rachel Israel, and Deirdre Degenaar, and Nurse Practitioners Debbie Tobin and Mayra Sohn, are all trained in evidence-based medicine and use their unique training to individualize care for each patient. The collaboration of doctors, midwives and nurse practitioners is what makes AkermanMed unique among healthcare providers as they can offer the best of both holistic and Western medicine.

“Our office provides a safe and comfortable environment where the patients’ needs always come first. Our providers will always take the time to discuss your preferences and options making you an active partner in your own care.”
