What People Say About Dr. Joshua Ammerman, MD

I found Dr. Ammerman to be knowledgeable and informative but rushed. Despite indicating that my problem was spondylolisthesis he told me he would not operate because the severity grade of my condition was not "bad enough". He recommended I change my lifestyle and not pick up my infant grandchildren. I thought doctors treated symptoms, especially in an area of the body where there is wide disparity of symptoms associated with certain conditions. Would not go back to this doctor

Excellent results Had laminectomy and fusion. Felt great in about a week and only reason I limited my activities was because he told me I had to otherwise I would have never known. Every other doctor told me I would be down for 6 months to 1 year.

Dr. Ammerman is a knowledgeable and experienced surgeon. His manner and willingness to explain procedures inspire inspire confidence in his patients. If I ever need surgery again he will be my first choice even though he is not close to where I live.
