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.

This review is based on many years (about 7-8 years) of personal experiences with Dr. Siegel. I was referred to him after sustaining a work related injury. Dr. Siegel has always had my best interest in mind. He has taken his time while treating me and made me laugh during the process. I have relied on him during some dark and painful times and has always come to my rescue. He is a master at his craft and I trust him implicitly. He is a great man and has an awesome staff.
I had a severe back injury in 2006 and have been in treatment ever since. My injury occurred in NY and I underwent years of diagnostic tests and procedures, surgeries (fusions), physical therapy as well as pain management. Upon relocating to S.Florida three and a half years ago, I needed to continue treatment. I was seen by a few orthopedic physicians and surgeons, a physiatrist, a neuropsychiatrist, all of whom felt that anything that could be of benefit to me, had already been tried. Yet my pain continued, thus, a referral back to pain management.. I was sent to one pain intervention physician who stated he could not assist me and I should accept a life of pain. I then found Dr. Siegel who has worked with me for well over a year, now. He has tried different spinal procedures, nerve blocks to radial nerve Lesioning. He creates and prescribes topical compounds for pain relief and changes ingredients based on my results. He has provided me with an H-wave unit for home pain management and a back brace that helps ease the pain. Through his treatment , the need for pain meds has been reduced drastically . Dr. Siegel never gave up on me and continues to actively seek treatments that help to improve my quality of life. A year ago , I had no quality of life.....thanks to Dr.Siegel, my life continues to improve.. It is an ongoing process, but he has truly made an amazing difference in my life... Thank You..
Simply put, I will never use this office again and I suggest you find a better office! First impression - There are 3 reception desk windows when entering the waiting room. Two are for other doctors and one is for Siegel's practice. Siegel's is the one that is always closed. It is really uninviting and is just an example of the culture within this office. Once they open the window for a few seconds to receive your documents or take your payment they literally tell you to wait and will close the window door on your face. Imagine handing over your paperwork and while they enter it in they close the door on you. Then, open it only to ask you a few other questions, then close it again. Think DMV rudeness, but worse. Remember, the Doctor sets the culture in the practice. The entire staff has an attitude every time I've been there. This obviously means that it's a miserable place to work and in turn they take it out on the patients. Dr. Siegel himself will discuss insurance / payment information with the patients, but in a very negative way. It was really unnecessary and rather uncomfortable and I felt it took time away from discussing my injury. The women you speak with for follow up appointments are beyond rude in every aspect possible. Again, they obviously hate their jobs and aren't afraid to express by being very short and completely uncompassionate. With as many good doctors and practices in this area, I highly recommend you go to a different place. Cleveland Clinic in Weston is a professional organization and I'm sorry I didn't go they to begin with.
I have had numerous lower back and neck surgeries which initially gave me some relief, but I was NEVER told my the Orthopedic Surgeons that over the years the discs above and below each fusion would fail. I was finally referred to Dr. Siegel for my pain management. I wish I would have met him prior to either surgery. There is no cure for my chronic pain, but I do get relief with his procedures. He's the best. Just the other day I was in so much pain and living in South Florida it is normally very hard to get an appointment with a Specialist the same day. Well, I did and I feel so much better today. As long as you are honest and explain to him what is going on with you, he has the right procedure to do and does it as soon as possible. His office staff also has gone above and beyond trying to fit me in the same day I called, plus have helped locate a specific drug he prescribed. Compared to other doctors in this area, this is the place to go if you are living with chronic pain. There is none better.
