Dr. Frank Hackl
Dr. Frank Hackl was born and raised in Poughkeepsie, New York. His father’s career an engineer at IBM heavily influenced his interests growing up. As a child, he enjoyed technology and working with computers. When he was twenty two, Dr. Hackl enlisted in the United States Air Force as a computer programmer. His Air Force career relocated him to Texas. He went on to obtain his Bachelor of Arts Computer Science from Texas Lutheran University in 1989. One of his job duties as a programmer was being apart of the software development team for training new recruits. The most rewarding part of being a software programmer was helping design applications that streamlined and increased the productivity of others.
After being in the Air Force for twelve years, Dr. Hackl felt like he could do more to help others. A friend that was currently in medical school planted a seed. With his family’s support, Dr. Hackl pursued his undergraduate studies for medical school prerequisites. He went to school on nights and weekends while maintaining a full time job to support his family. He successfully completed his pre-med courses at University of Texas San Antonio in 1998. Dr. Hackl’s non traditional route to obtain dual Board Certifications in Anesthesiology and Pain Management is inspiring.
Dr. Hackl went on to graduate from medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in
San Antonio, Texas. During his second year of medical school is when he decided that he wanted to do pain management. He went on to complete his Anesthesia Residency in Lubbock, Texas, and an additional year in pain fellowship under Gábor Rácz, M.D. at Texas Tech University. Dr. Hackl says Dr. Rácz mentorship was instrumental in developing his skills as a pain management physician. Dr. Rácz is world known for his cutting edge work with chronic back pain and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).
After his fellowship, Dr. Hackl wasn’t sure where he wanted to practice. He has always been drawn to this area of the country because “people in the Midwest are the nicest”. One of his fellow colleagues went to school at Oral Roberts University and introduced Dr. Hackl to Tulsa. In 2007, he relocated from Texas to Tulsa, Oklahoma. He has enjoyed living in Tulsa. His favorite thing about Tulsa is that it is a good balance of small town charm with the amenities of a larger city. Dr. Hackl has been practicing in the Tulsa community since
In 2015, Dr. Hackl and his business partner, Cannen Ferrell, started their own pain management clinic, Access Pain Solutions. The two started their partnership because they shared a goal and vision. At Access Pain Solutions the goal is to provide quality care without month long wait times for patients to get in.
As an interventional pain management specialist, Dr. Hackl provides a wide variety of modern pain management modalities and is trained in all aspects of pain medicine including medical and interventional therapies. Dr. Hackl’s goal in treating patients is to relieve pain through interventional therapy and to minimize the use of medications as much as possible. Access Pain Solutions also offers cutting edge treatment programs for neuropathic pain and knee replacement candidates. His passion is giving his patients a quality of life back by helping them move and be more functional despite of their chronic pain. He prides himself on the fact that he takes prescribing pain medications very seriously. Dr. Hackl knows there is a delicate balance between medication helping or harming a patient. For this reason Dr. Hackl also offers Buprenorphine treatment, also known as Suboxone therapy, to his patients here in the Tulsa area.
The clinic strives to put patient care first and provide quality interventional pain management while protecting our community from abuse and diversion from dangerous medications. Buprenorphine treatment helps patients who are struggling with substance abuse and addiction. Dr. Hackl takes addiction very seriously at Access Pain Solutions in Tulsa.

Cannen was born on July 17, 1973 in Tulsa, OK. Cannen was raised by his grandparents Claudia and Commodore Stone. Commodore, a successful businessman, mentored Cannen from a young age to be a leader and entrepreneur like himself. He taught Cannen that hard work, dedication and being good to people will give him the edge every good business person needs. Cannen is married to Kelly Ferrell and they have four children. The Ferrell’s had lived in Texas for ten years and always wanted to get back to Tulsa. They felt it was important to be close to where their family and friends lived. In October of 2009 Cannen and Kelly found a way back to Tulsa and they began hammering out a business plan that not only filled a need for themselves but for many others in the country. Health insurance was skyrocketing and more and more people, including the Ferrell’s, were paying more of their medical expense out of pocket. Cannen and Kelly decided to start a Family Practice that was convenient, with same day appointments, and offered affordable and transparent pricing. Something they had not seen where they lived in Texas and did not see in Tulsa. The Ferrell’s were using a dedicated urgent care and a family practice for their family’s medical needs, in Texas. They saw that many families in Tulsa had the same problem. Cannen met Dr. William Dudney who saw our vision for a more cohesive family practice. Dr. Dudney agreed to help start Access Solutions Medical Group and in January 2010 they began seeing their first patients. Access Solutions Medical Group was so well received by the Tulsa community the Ferrell’s started two other primary care clinics in the surrounding Tulsa area. With three family practice locations Cannen looked at his current patient load most common referral and found Pain Management was the top place his providers were sending their patients. The problem was patients were having to wait months before they were able to be seen by the pain management doctor. That was the deciding factor to open a Pain Management Clinic. It took several tries and multiple providers before Cannen and Dr. Frank Hackl met, and their business relationship began. Dr. Hackl began seeing patients at Access Pain Solutions while still working at Uber Healthcare. In 2016 Dr. Hackl and Cannen became partners at Access Pain Solutions. Cannen and Dr. Hackl work well together because each has their own expertise and respect for one another. Dr. Hackl is one of Tulsa’s finest Pain Medicine doctors and Cannen Ferrell has had a lifetime of successful businesses.
Cannen started his first business when he was 16 years old with his cousin, Trey. Both grandfathers owned Trucking companies and the cousins decided to start washing trucks while the truck drivers were waiting to pick up their next load. This first venture was one where the boys learned the foundations of owning a business. They learned about profit and loss, if you don’ do a good job you have to do the job again, hard work pays off and if he treated the customer right he would be successful. Cannen continued this business through high school and into his first years of college. The lessons he learned though followed him through his lifetime.
Cannen attended college at Tulsa Junior College. While in his second year of school he met his wife Kelly. Cannen and Kelly married January 14, 1995. Kelly, like him, came from a family of entrepreneurs and urged Cannen to start a business with her sisters husbands in the manufacturing industry. Cannen continued to go to school in the evening while working at the manufacturing company him and his brothers-in-law owned. Cannen took charge in every aspect of the manufacturing of the product. He set up the processes, assembly lines, equipment and the hiring of quality employees. Cannen was named by the top industry magazine for his ability to produce a large quantity of inventory with a streamlined process and low overhead. Cannen and his brothers-in-law grew the business into a successful company.
Cannen and Kelly started their family June of 1995 with the birth of their first daughter Moragen and their second daughter Hailey in 1997. Their young family had much to be thankful for and Cannen’s dedication to his work and family never faltered.
In 1999 Cannen had an offer to work for a small brokerage firm. Cannen did an understudy in the firm and excelled in all facets of his education. Cannen absorbed everything he could. What made the job fun was meeting so many people and getting the opportunity to help them. Cannen enjoyed the opportunity to learn about people and their life. What mattered to them and why. Because of his desire and ability to connect with people Cannen went on to study for and receive his brokerage and insurance and advisory licenses. Cannen spent several years in the firm before he moved his family to Texas to start his own brokerage firm.
Cannen and his growing family moved to Texas in 2001. They settled in North Richland Hills, TX, a suburb of Fort Worth. Cannen and Kelly started their company the same year their youngest daughter went to school full time. This gave Kelly the opportunity to step in and help Cannen grow their company. Their firm grew, and his clients were happy. Cannen and Kelly decided to add to their little family and were expecting their first son in 2006 and their second son in 2007. Cannen, Kelly and the girls were elated to have two boys added to their female dominated family. Cannen dreamed of fishing and hunting with his boys. Things he himself enjoyed doing with both of his grandfathers.
Cannen and Kelly’s choice to move back to Tulsa to be close to family and friends was one of the best decisions they had made for their family. The business decision to start Access Solutions Medical Group proved to be immeasurably helpful to the many families in the Tulsa area that rely on good medicine in a timely manner. Access Solutions has grown to serve the specialties of Family Medicine, Pain Medicine, Dermatology and Rheumatology.
Kace Grigg, APRN-CNF
I am from Kansas, Ok, which is on the AK border and I graduated form the University of Arkansas with a Bachelors of Science and Nursing and Maryville University with a Masters of Science and Nursing and Minor Practitioner degree.
I think allot of patients are searching for answers about the source of their pain and rather than just being brought into a clinic and given medications allot of people would like to find the underlying or root cause. And at Access Pain Solutions we try to differentiate their care, we try to give them deeper answers and we try to come up with solutions rather than just putting another band-aid on it.
With the knee program we offer a three-tier program to get patients knee joints feeling better. We offer Hyaluronic Acid Treatment which has been around for several years and has show to regenerate cartilage growth in the knee, re-cushion the knee, lower inflammation, and get them active and walking again. Many patients want to avoid knee surgery. Either because they don’t want to go through the surgery recovery process or are possibly physically not able to. The knee program has offered them a great option that’s non-surgical to get them back up on their feet and get their knees feeling better. We also couple it with physical therapy, specified bracing and other topical medication that can help with the pain as well.
If any of the problems we’ve addressed sound like you, just give us a call. We’re here all through the week. We’re willing to get you in. Either discuss it with your primary care doctor if pain management would be a good option for you or get that referral that you need but we’ll get you in, get you evaluated and see what customized treatment plans we can come up with to help you with your pain needs.
