Specialties

Dr. Jacob Handszer 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.

Worst pain management doctor in the area!!!!!

save yourself the time and money. Walked in the room, sat at his computer with his back to me and said "I don't prescribe narcotics, what else can I do for you" I was NOT there for narcotics. His rudeness was shocking!!!!! I should not have been surprised since as a nurse he routinely made comments for pts recovering from surgery as "drug seeking" . This guy is in the wrong line of work in my opinion

Don't ever lose a pill! He breaks up with you after years!

After being a very good, code adhering patient for years, I chose to be honest with my Dr. I lost a couple of pills. No sooner than I get off the phone, I receive a letter in the mail that he won't be my dr anymore. I should have lied. He doesn't really take your pain seriously, only how HE thinks you should be feeling. Not a good idea for a so called pain mgmt Dr.

Great doctor

I have been seeing Dr. Handszer for many years. He has been and continues to be consistent, helpful and caring when it comes to his patients. He has a good disposition when speaking to you and really wants to help you. I have seen other Dr's for my back issues before seeing hum,but he is the best hands down. He also has the best staff working in the office and in his procedure area.

Eased my pain and let me get back to life

Dr. Handszer did a great job taking the time to talk to me and find my real issues of pain. I was in a car accident and it was serious and he helped ease the pain and get back into a normal life. This is one doctor I will always recommended to others.
