– Our Promise:

Palm Beach Sports Medicine makes a promise to every patient, every visit:

When you come to our office, you will see a doctor, a trained physician who will listen to what you have to say, carefully evaluate your condition, and prescribe your treatment plan.

Too often, patients go to their “doctor’s” appointment, only to find that they’re really seeing a “physician extender,” or physician’s assistant. While these personnel are highly trained, they’re still not doctors. When you come to Palm Beach Sports Medicine, you can count on seeing a fully qualified physician at every visit.

– Why Choose Us:

Palm Beach Sports Medicine is a practice run by doctors, whose decisions are based on sound medical principles and guided by your specific needs for overcoming acute pain from an injury, or chronic pain from lingering damage.  At Palm Beach Sports Medicine we welcome the opportunity to help you recover from your sports related injury — or any orthopaedic injury — and regain your highest level of function with comfort.


At Palm Beach Sports Medicine we welcome the opportunity to help you recover from your sports related injury  or any orthopaedic injury and regain your highest level of function with comfort.

  • I have been to Palm Beach Sports Medicine twice now, once for a knee replacement and once for a hip injury, my experience there has been incredible, the staff is kind, considerate and attentive, I will never go to another center if I have to go!
  • Dr. Ackerman listened carefully to my description of my shoulder injury & the symptoms I was experiencing. He requested an MRI & called me the next day to discuss his evaluation & suggest a treatment plan, which worked & brought my shoulder back to 100% functionality. His staff was very pleasant & accommodating when scheduling appointments. He also has an office in Jupiter, which was more conveinent for me so all my appointments except the initial (the MRI machine is in WPB) were scheduled there. I would strongly recommend Dr. Ackerman to anyone suffering from a sports-related injury. Can't say enough good things about him!
  • Thanks to David and Eric for your work and dedication to help me in my rehabilitation. It was a wonderful help and now is in my hands to continue improving each day. Thanks a lot!

  • Dear Dr.Eric. The 2-months-experience at pbspm was indeed remarkable; you as well as David were an excellent guidance for me. I am thankful for your thoughtful help. Should there be any need in the future for physical therapy there is only one way to go.....pbspm. Thank you.
    G. Abdo
  • The entire staff was friendly, helpful, and answered questions professionally. Eric and David were both motivational and encouraging. I felt I was a part of the recovery process. Overall the “PT” treatment was excellent and friendly.

  • You have a very intuitive healing touch that has helped me so much in my recovery.
    Carol M
  • Dr Ackerman It was 3 months ago that you performed total knee replacement on my right knee. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to you, as my surgery was a complete success. From our very first meeting in January, I knew I was in extremely cable hands. While in the hospital, you were there every morning to check on me and change my dressing. I dreaded the pain that everyone told me I would experience, that pain was minimal and the recovery was uneventful at best. Everyone know that has had this procedure is amazed at my recovery, and I owe that all to you! I would also like to thank Geneva, she too went above an beyond to help me in any way that she could. Her concern like yours was truly genuine. Dr Ackerman, thank you again for all that you did and continue to do for me. It is truly my pleasure to recommend you and Palm Beach Sports Medicine.
    Truly Amazing Experience
  • I was also very pleased with the treatment I received from Dr. Randazzo. He made me feel at ease and impressed me with his knowledge. Perhaps the greatest compliment I could give him was to recommend him to my friend who was also going through knee issues. She too, was very pleased. Please also thank Patti for all of her help with scheduling and insurance needs. She also was always friendly and approachable.
  • "Thank you David and Eric for the difference you have made on my condition! You guys are awesome on every level, knowledge and professionalism!!! I would highly recommend your office and I would definitely comeback the next time I need therapy!" Wish you the very best!
  • Very impressed. You all do an amazing job! Thank you!
    Bob K
  • Everyone was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Dr. Wanner was kind and took the time to explain why we were doing various stretches. I appreciate the help and would recommend others coming here if they had the need. Very skilled staff! Thank you!
    Sarah J
  • I have always believed in giving credit where credit is due. Needless to say, thank you for doing a great surgical job on both of my knees. This letter is mainly to compliment your physical therapy department. Eric Wanner, DPT and David Fielding, PTA are two physical therapists that you don’t want to lose. They both worked with me and I have nothing but praise for them both. Eric, being the director, is like a juggler keeping all the motions organized and on task. Their constant positive remarks and praise for this patient and, the other patients I observed while in therapy, shows their professionalism and their enthusiasm for helping their respective patients. Their professionalism and the services of everyone who I have interacted with in your office over the years just reassure me of what a fine medical facility that exists in the name of Palm Beach Sports Medicine. If you ever need any comments from a satisfied patient please don’t hesitate in contacting me.

  • Dr Cohen, Thank you for taking such good care of me and getting me back on my feet. You have an exceptional staff and it is a pleasure to come to your office.
  • Thank you so much for your expertise!!! You made a painful shoulder tolerable and finally better! Merry Christmas with gratitude.
  • I can do more now then before my surgery. Eric, David, and Patti are beyond excellent at their job. I will recommend Palm Beach Sports Medicine to all of my injured friends. Thank you!
    Jenna C
  • Thanks so much! You guys gave me my active life back. I will always remember you both.
    Mary J
  • After six weeks in physical therapy at Palm Beach Spots Medicine, I progressed faster and further than I did with my previous knee rehab. Great job, Eric!
    Robert L
  • I would like to express my greatest thanks and appreciation to Dr. Stiebel and the entire staff at Palm Beach Sportsmedicine. Thank you to everyone in the front office for their friendly greetings each and every time I enter. Kirsten, her level ofprofessionalism ,warmth, attention ,and devotion that is displayed well to myself and the rest of my family that has come now as patients. Their determination to have things done as quickly and efficiently always comes through in everything they do. Without them my surgery would not have been as well managed and comfortable. From Kirsten calling me the night before to wish me well and see if there was anything I needed, to Dr. Stiebel being ever so patient and kind when I turned around and broke my hand my third week after surgery. I have been treated with the utmost kindness and respect, which is far and few between in Medicine now . I have been an Administrator in Medicine for 25 years and people forget patients don't come because they feel well. The Golden Rule is forgotten in too many medical offices, and it is so refreshing to see no matter what day or time your office is always pleasant and accommodating.
  • You have a very intuitive healing touch that has helped me so much in my recovery.
    Carol M
  • Than you for patience and expert guidance through my therapy. I truly appreciate everything you’ve done for me.
    Caroline F
  • David and Eric are professional, pleasant, and thorough. I would highly recommend them for physical therapy needs.
    Steven T
  • Great job, very professional.
    Sarah R
  • It was an excellent experience (this was the 3rd doctor and physical therapy office I’ve tried) overall. Dr. Randazzo was great as he listened and offered the help that I needed. The PT helped me tremendously! David and Dr. Eric were extremely accurate on the choice of exercises that I needed to help me heal and learn what I have to continue on my own.
    Maria F
  • PERFECTO! Do NOT change a thing! These guys a great in everyday! From the reception, to the doctors and the physical therapists, a 10 out of 10 across the board!
  • AMAZING! This staff is incredible, helpful and very accommodating. Both David and Eric have extensive knowledge and are extremely patient and caring. They fixed me!!!!
  • Best of the Best! I have been through 3 knee surgeries, 3 physical therapists and this one is by far the best of the best! I wish I knew of them earlier.
  • BACK TO WALKING!!! When I came to therapy I was in really bad shape. With the excellent care and treatment from Dr Eric and David I am so grateful to be able to walk and to be at the point I am today. They are without doubt the very best!!! I could not have reached my current range of motion without them. I will be telling everyone and anyone that this is the best place to come for Physical Therapy if you want success.
  • Conervative Surgeons!!!!! SO REFRESHING!! Physical Therapy worked with the first 2 weeks! The Dr Stiebel was very knowledgeable and wasn't ready to cut like all the other orthos I have seen were. He is conservative and that was so refreshing. He knew Physical Therapy would help and it has!! What a great experience.
