Dr. Anthony Kirkpatrick has the following 2 specialties
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.
- Pain Management
A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.

Dr K was polite, on time and very through! I found him to be be very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. He did an exam, checked my current medical records, and did indeed confirm my diagnosis of CRPS. I did this on my own as I wanted to know from a Dr. with extensive, exclusive experience in this field. Well with the time, travel and cost of this independent study. Now I'm at ease knowing my current Drs are on the right path!! I would highly recommend these folks. AAA+.
Our daughter was diagnosed at 15, she was in a wheelchair and ONLY with Dr K's help & knowledge she is alive and thriving. She is 32 now a mom & wife. Dr K not only kept her going as the disease spread to both legs & 1arm, he knew what was next after the blocks. He sent us to Dr Bandyk who had to do sympathectomies. She has been in remission for over 15 years. Dr Kirkpatrick is a Angel among us, Without him we would have lost our Sarah, HE is a true Life saver <3
