Dr Ammerman gets right to the point in office visits. He tells you exactly what is going on with nerve pain and explains it lucidly. He does not rush you into surgery and much prefers to steer you toward non-invasive options; that is to say, he is not knife-happy. But when he does operate, he uses up-to-date approaches; he performed an XLIF on my back and I walked out of the hospital with no pain at all three days later. He visited me post op at least three times daily. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Ammerman found the source of my thigh and back pain in just a few minutes. He was direct and sent me to Point Performance for a pain block, which was highly successful. He is personable and I felt he was truly concerned. Furthermore, I waited less than five minutes for my appointment. At the end, he walked me to the waiting room-how rare is that. I highly recommend him for his knowledge and attitude to patients.

Dr. Ammerman is an amazing physician and does not waste time to find a solution for his patients. His association with Sibley Hospital makes it even convenient for test results to be delivered to him same day. Dr. Ammerman takes the time to make phone calls and offered choices to me with regard to my care.
