What a GREAT doctor ! I had to go for a nerve test which involves being poked with needles I wasn't looking forward to going through since I was already in a great deal of pain. His bedside manner was unbelievable. He went to great effort to take the time to let me know before each needle would go in and constantly kept asking me if I was okay ! Turns out the test was really no big deal at all ! He's SO PERSONABLE and his calming manner sure helped make it so much easier for me to get through the test. If I could rate him 10 stars I would !

Dr. Achtman is very knowledgable and takes time to listen to your concerns and explain anything that you may have questions about. The day of my SI joint injection I was very nervous and he made sure to check in on me and make me feel more at ease. He also does a thorough job of investigating all the options that you have regarding your condition. He truly just wants what is best for you. Highly recommend.

Personally, I feel any negative review or reviews that purport he lacks medical knowledge are a preposterous and juvenile response because he will not hand out prescription pain medicine like candy. He actually wants to treat the underlying condition. Imagine...a doctor who wants to treat the condition and not just the symptoms. He's very smart and very compassionate.

Dr Atchman said he could help but took many months to get back to us, Only to say he would do nothing even though there are things he could’ve done that would’ve really helped. Further, he lacked basic medical knowledge & knowledge about my condition. Such a waste of time and money. Don’t go here.

First time visit with the Dr. Very pleased he listened and heard me. He came up with a medical plan to help me with my pain and has given me hope that I could get better. After cervical spinal fusion and years of pain I was about to give up but I decided to make an appointment to see Dr. Achtman and I'm glad I did. I will let you know how prognosis ends.
