Jan 11, 2013 Dharam Mann, MD was appointed MOCAAPI President starting January 2013. Dr. Mann has served as Vice President for 2011 and 2012. He is a patron member of MOCAAPI and AAPI.
Dr. Mann earned his Doctorate of Medicine from the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences in Rohtak, India before coming to the United States in 1997. Once in the United States, Dr. Mann completed his surgical internship and anesthesia residency at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ and his fellowship in cardiac anesthesia at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Anesthesiology, a diplomat of the American Board of Pain Medicine and is TEE Board Certified by the National Board of Echocardiology. Dr. Mann has taught at St. Barnabas Hospital, has been published in numerous journals, and has contributed CD-ROMs for medical training. Now a Board Certified Anesthesiologist and Pain Management Specialist, Dr. Mann has dedicated his career to helping those with pain.
Having a surgical background, Dr. Mann saw that there are many people who need help managing their pain. “It’s a new field,” Dr. Mann says. “It’s not like any other field and I just wanted to help people in pain.” He chose Whiting as his first location to open his practice due to the large population of senior citizens there with conditions causing acute and chronic pain.
Dr. Mann succeeds in his goal of giving patients the ability to live with pain at a functional level through his comprehensive services and diagnostic capabilities. He is committed to providing patients with the most advanced and state of the art technologies and medical equipment.
It was important to Dr. Mann that he build a strong staff that is highly capable and follows the mission and goals of the practice. He feels fortunate to have found such a great staff comprised of 30 professionals including five doctors, two nurse practitioners and multiple medical assistants.
One of Dr. Mann’s colleagues is his wife, Dr. Sunita S. Mann, who is the practice’s Neuroradiologist. Together they have three children. Though he runs a busy practice, Dr. Mann always makes time for his family, attending his children’s sports activities and family events.
Dr. Mann and his wife have struck a positive balance of home and work life, and Dr. S. Mann commends her husband’s work ethic. “He works six days a week and he loves it,” she says of her husband. “You could send him to the office all seven days and he would be completely fine because he loves what he does.”
“If I could help somebody and they come back to see me and say, ‘thank you doctor,’ that makes my day,” Dr. Mann says. “If we change their life and put a smile on their face…that’s the main thing.”
