Specialties

Dr. Akhtar Purvez has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Dr. Purvez was so easy to talk with. He is so knowledgeable and explained my condition and what I needed to correct it. I required a procedure and it was scheduled for the next day! The procedure was performed with a comfortable bedside manner! He is so compassionate and kind. It makes it easier to know I can have trust and confidence that we will continue to have a good professional relationship.
