Dr. Joel D Ackerman has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

Very Caring Doctor

I have been with Dr. Ackerman for quite awhile and have found him to be the absolute best when it comes to spending time with his patients and evaluating the best plan of action for long term pain management. My only problem is with Pain Management Associates that can't seem to get insurance billed correctly and calling to schedule an appointment and being on hold forever and no one picks up the phone. At one time I actually held for 45 minutes and finally gave up. He's absolutely the best and wished he worked for a totally different Pain Management.

Highly Recommend

I have had a great experience with Dr. Ackerman. He has been my pain mgmt doc for about 9 months now, gearing me up to my impending back surgery and he has been nothing but terrific and understanding. He always speaks to me with respect and takes time to listen to me. He speaks to his patients in "regular people" terms and helps you to understand everything he is doing and explains your treatment and condition completely.
