Specialties

Dr. Gilberto M Acosta has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Excellent Doctor!!!

Great Doctor! He always knows what he is talking about and makes me feel comfortable. He is not quick to over prescribe which is great! And he actually takes time with you so he can come to a good conclusion of what treatment will be!!!

Pt of 1 year

I am still new to this area (under 2 years) I moved to northern florida from Ohio & was nervous about starting over & finding a new doc since I had been to same one in ohio for many years! I was extremely lucky in finding a wonderful pain doc in Middleburg fl , Dr Khanna. She was an angel. But unfortunately after only 6 months there I relocated again, more south, to swfl. Once again I found myself having to find a doctor. Not only is good docs hard to come by but I have heard, & witnessed, how florida has been impacted by the pill mills that used to be everywhere! I did some research & was referred to Dr Acosta. My first appt he spent time with me going over all my history & meds & seemed to truly care how my pain was controlled. However, it is extremely hard to get appts & the billing department always bills incorrectly to my insurance & it's a huge headache!! Also, 8 times out of 10 I have to see a nurse practitioner instead of dr Acosta. This can be frustrating. Some of the staff are very rude. I mean I work in the medical field so I can understand the stress, esp in pain medicine practices! But one of the NP I had to see 1 month was the only doc I have ever seen in my life that made me feel like a piece of crap for being a pain pt. I have made it extremely clear I will not see her again! Vanessa, dr acosta's NP at the sanctuary location, is very sweet & caring! Overall, dr Acosta is a good doc. Whenever I see him I am satisfied with his bedside manner & care I receive. But some of the rude staff, billing errors, & the incredibly hard time getting appts is a letdown.
